Did you know you can file your taxes after April 15? It's easy, just e-file a tax extension (Form 4868 or Form 7004), and receive confirmation in a few hours.
The IRS doesn't ask for a reason for the extension--it's called an Automatic Extension of Time, so an overwhelming majority of requests are approved. You can e-file for an extension in less than ten minutes online. E-filing is the way to go. It's quick, easy and it secure.
