Can I file my taxes late?

Asked by: sfbs 225 views YA Discussion

If I don’t do my taxes today what will happen? And can I file after the 15th? How do I go about filing late?

    Yes, you can file late! You actually have several options:

    * You can just let the deadline pass, and file later. There are fines for this, but it’s always a possibility.

    * You can file borrow to pay for the refund (by asking for help from friends or relatives, or even by putting it on a credit card).

    * You can try to set up a payment plan with the IRS.

    The first and last options usually end up being the cheapest, but they can both be pretty tricky. Your best option is to work with a professional who has experience helping people file late. They’ll be able to tell you which option will save you the most money, and could even assist in negotiating with the IRS.

    Yes you can file late. You file late the same way you would file on time, at lease until October. If you don’t owe any additional tax, you can file anytime in the next 3 years (until 4/15/2016) and still get your refund. Why you would want to wait that long, I don’t know.

    If you owe, there is a late filing penalty, a late payment penalty, and interest. It would be wise to file for an extension to day if you for some reason can’t file today. If you could file but you owe and don’t have the money to pay, file and pay what you can, if anything. That avoids the late filing penalty. Pay the rest later.

    Just quit wasting your time and get it done when ever you do choose to do so and do not worry about it any more at this time in your life NOW ASAP tomorrow are the next day Just get it filled out correctly and completely and make 2 copies one for your records in case you should need it in the future and sign the other to send on to the correct IRS address for processing at that time.
    Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful. 04/15/2013

    you file the same way you would if you were filing on time
    filing late is subject to late filing fees and interest daily on the amount that you might owe
