Should I file?

You can get an extension if you need more time

It's totally okay to ask for more time to file your taxes. There's no penalty for asking for an extension. There's even an easy, official way to do it.

Can't file by April 15?

You can get an extension until October 15. Ask a tax preparer for help, or do it yourself here.

If you owe money on your taxes and can't pay in full, get on a payment plan by April 15 to avoid penalties.

If you can’t pay on time or can't start a payment plan, don’t worry. There will be a fine but you won’t go to jail.
