Simple instructions are included on what to do when you want to move the April 15th tax filing deadline out until October 15th.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILING TAX EXTENSION FORMS

Here are the forms necessary for you to request an extension of time to file your Federal income tax return. Please be aware that an extension of time to file the tax return is NOT an extension of time to pay money for tax that is ultimately due on the tax forms. You must make an estimate of your tax for the year and pay any tax due along with the extension form when you file it.

Fill in the blanks (if any) on the enclosed Form 4868, showing your estimated income and withholding, plus any additional payments for the year. There are substantial penalties possible if the blanks on your extension form are filled out incorrectly. Enclose a check for the balance due (if any) made payable to the “United States Treasury Dept.”, and mail the check and form to: IRS at P O Box 7122, San Francisco, CA 94120—7122 no later than April 15th. If you are not sending a check with the form then file it with: IRS   Ogden, Utah 84201 (The Post Knows the Street Address in Ogden, UT). We will not file this form for you, then you will know for sure that you took care of the task. You must file a Federal extension even if you have no tax dollars due in order to avoid a $100 penalty.  If you are making estimated tax payments for the current year, you can include a payment with your extension form, or pay with a separate current year voucher before April 15th.

 

California is granting a paperless automatic extension to file your return on or before October 15th. However, to avoid late payment penalties, you must pay 100% of your tax liability by April 15th. If you can’t file by April 15th but still owe additional tax you must use the enclosed Form 3519 to mail your payment by April 15th. Do not mail the California form (or anything else) unless you owe more tax (money talks or California Franchise Tax Board does not want to hear from you).

If you under-estimate the amount of tax you owe with your extension, you will have to pay interest on the unpaid amount.  If you do not pay at least 90% of your total Federal tax or 100% of your total California tax, your extensions will be invalidated, and you may be liable for a failure-to-file penalty of 5% of the tax due for each month your returns are late (up to 25% of the tax that was not paid on time), in addition to the interest.

Make sure your extension and/or payment voucher are filed on time and with the correct payment. We will not be responsible for any extension penalties or interest that you incur. If we fill out the forms for you, we will rely on estimates of income provided by you, and we endeavor to make the estimated tax as accurate as possible. We are trying to help you pay the lowest possible tax.

Your Federal extension is valid for six months from April 15th, and the California extension is valid for six months. You are responsible for seeing that your returns are filed prior to the extension deadlines.  We prefer to fill out the extension forms for you after completing your tax interview appointment. If there is data needed to complete your return you will need to estimate the missing data.

After you have filed your extensions, please mail or fax us a signed completed copy of the following confirmation form letter. We can then post the transaction to your completed tax forms, if they have not be completed prior to receipt of your confirmation letter. Call our office if you have any questions or if you would like to schedule an appointment.

Very truly yours,

Dear Mr. Crandell,

We filed our request for an extension of time to file the tax forms with the Internal Revenue Service and State Franchise Tax Board on ______________ (date).   We paid the amount of $___________ to the IRS, and the amount of $____________ to the State Franchise Tax Board on the same day. We understand that the extension of time to file request forms are to request an extended due date to file the tax returns until October 15th, and the forms do not serve to extend the time we have to pay any tax that we may owe the government.

We wanted to give you this information in writing because we are aware that your tax office is extremely busy at this time of year, so we did not think it was a good idea to give you this information verbally on the phone.   However, if our tax returns have not already been processed by your office, then please add this information to the current year tax processing information before completion. We are aware that if this conformation form is not sent back to Rex Crandell’s office then our completed income tax forms will not show that we have paid any dollar amounts with the Extension of Time to File Request forms that we filed with the government. Then the government will send an adjustment letter to us when they notice that we actually did send money with request to extend the April tax filing deadline.

Very truly yours,

Signed: X____________________________

Watch “Tax Season – for a CPA on RexTube.   


A window into the exciting world of a CPA and the annual roller coaster ride called “The Busy Tax Season”.  Just marvelous.
Just think if all the work you did all year was all due on April 15th.
Do you think that might cause a little bit of stress?

I have heard of several stories about CPA’s having fatal heart attacks during the busy season, not good, to be sure.

Better hurry, if you are going to take care if this before April 15, 2013.  In fact you might even need a time machine.  Well, how about ‘back to the future’?

====================

 

I do not know anything about the process of hiring a ( here to for) unkown website in cyberspace (without a street address in any country) service provider to prepare and file your extension of time to file request forms with the government. I did not know that these companies even existed. I did notice that none of them that I came across said anything about helping people prepare and file the California’s FTB Form 3519, for those millions of people who are California residents or that work and pay taxes in California.

A few questions come to my mind about using a web only based tax extention preparation and filing service;
.
  1)  Why not just buy a stamp and mail it to the tax department?  
.
2) If you want proof thay the IRS received the form you mailed them, why not just pay a few bucks more to send it ‘Certified  Mail’ with Return Receipt Requested.
.
I have read several Tax Court cases discussing the valuable proof evidence that Certified Mail provides. After all, the US Postal Service and the Internal Revenue Service are both agencies of the USA federal government.
.
By the way, the Delivery Confirmation service that the US Post Office provides does NOT provide legal proof in court when defending against IRS filling penalties.
.
3) How can you be certain that the alleged vendor to file your extensions is legitimate?  By this I mean would you give a total stranger on the street your Social Security Number, Date of Birth, Address, Kids Names, and you Credit Card information?   What if the web site was a trickster outfit based in Bulgaria that was into perpetrating the identity theft game ( I mean crime)? 
.
I think it might be less risky to avoid cyberspace and just mail your tax extensions yourself, in an envelope, with a US Postage stamp on the envelope. Oh, that is boringly low tech. So what’s the downside to low tech that actually work, any way?
.

Having said that, I do not know anything about any of the vendors in this report. (other than IRS which I do not include in the definition of vendors because consumers do not buy ‘services’ from the IRS). 
.
I have never met these vendors and do not have anything adverse or disparaging to say about someone or any company that I do not even know.

Lo Que Debe Saber Si Necesita Más Tiempo para Presentar su Declaración de Impuestos

Consejo Tributario

El 15 de abril, la fecha límite para presentar sus impuestos y está a la vuelta de la esquina. ¿Qué pasa si usted no puede presentar su declaración antes de la fecha límite? Si necesita más tiempo, puede obtener una prórroga automática de seis meses del IRS. No tiene que explicar el por qué está pidiendo más tiempo. Aquí hay cinco datos importantes que debe saber sobre la presentación de una extensión:

1. Presente a tiempo, incluso si usted no puede pagar. Si completa su declaración de impuestos, pero no puede pagar los impuestos que debe, no solicite una prórroga. En su lugar, presente su declaración a tiempo y pague lo más que pueda. De esa manera usted evitará la multa por una presentación tardía, la cual es mayor a la multa por no pagar todos los impuestos a tiempo. Además, usted tieneopciones de pago. Solicite un plan de pago usando la Solilcitud Electronica de Acuerdo de Pago en Línea en IRS.gov. También puede presentar el Formulario 9465(SP), Solicitud de Acuerdo a Plazos con su declaración de impuestos. Si usted no puede hacer los pagos adeudados por una dificultad financiera (en inglés), el IRS trabajará con usted.

2. La Prórroga es para presentar no otorga más tiempo para pagar. Una prórroga para presentar le dará seis meses más para presentar su declaración de impuestos, hasta el 15 de octubre. No le da más tiempo para pagar sus impuestos. No obstante, debe estimar y pagar lo que adeuda antes del 15 de abril. Se le cobrarán intereses sobre cualquier cantidad no pagada para la fecha límite. Usted también puede pagar una multa por no pagar a tiempo.

3. Use Free File del IRS para solicitar una prórroga. Puede usar Free File del  IRS para solicitar su prórroga. Free File está disponible sólo a través de la página web IRS.gov. Usted debe presentar electrónicamente la solicitud para la medianoche del 15 de abril. Si hace su solicitud de prórroga electrónicamente, el IRS le enviara un acuse de recibo. También puede regresar a Free File en cualquier momento antes del 15 de octubre para preparar y presentar electrónicamente y gratis su declaración de impuestos.

4. Use el Formulario 4868(SP). También puede solicitar una extensión enviando por correo el Formulario 4868(SP), Solicitud de Prórroga Automática para Presentar Impuestos sobre Ingreso Personal de los Estados Unidos. Usted debe presentar este formulario al IRS antes del 15 de abril. El Formulario 4868 está disponible en IRS.gov.

No es necesario presentar un Formulario 4868 en papel si realiza un pago con la opción de pago electrónica del IRS. El IRS procesará automáticamente su extensión cuando usted paga electrónicamente. Usted puede pagar en línea o por teléfono.

5. Retiro electrónico de fondos. Si hace su presentación electrónicamente de una solicitud de prórroga, también puede pagar el saldo que adeude al autorizar un retiro electrónico de fondos de su cuenta corriente o de ahorros. Para hacer esto usted necesitará su número de ruta del banco y de la cuenta.
