He who hesitates is lost or so the adage goes. Can you wait another week? Probably not. In the case of filing your tax return you may lose time and money. Are you one of the unprepared Americans who has not yet done anything about your tax return?
Some 29 million individuals filed returns just days before the deadline a few years ago in 2016. Some people delay because they don’t want to make a mistake, others think they like to work under pressure.
Last year 11.6 million Americans filed for extensions and the IRS expects that number to grow this year. Filing an extension gives you an extra six months, and your tax forms and payment are not due until October 15, 2019. Be aware that your extension means that the IRS will charge interest on unpaid taxes. This creates another tax bill you will receive after you have filed late. If you are not one of those who adjusted withholding in 2018, you may find you need extra time to pay your tax bills.
