October 15 Tax Extension Deadline

In IR-2018-194, the Service reminded taxpayers to file their returns by October 15, if they previously asked for an extension. Over 14 million taxpayers chose to pay their tax by April 18, 2018, but elected an extension of their tax return filing date to October 15, 2018.

Some taxpayers may have even more time to file. Military members who are serving in Afghanistan, Iraq or other combat zones have 180 days after leaving the combat zone to file. They also may delay payment of tax until that 180-day deadline.

Taxpayers in certain parts of California (fire disaster) or the Carolinas and Texas (hurricane disaster) also have extended filing dates. Taxpayers in a disaster zone with extended filing dates were required to pay any applicable tax by April 18, 2018.

All taxpayers should retain tax returns and documents to support their deductions for at least three years. Your prior tax returns include information such as your adjusted gross income (AGI). Your prior year AGI is used to authenticate your identity under new IRS security procedures if you request a tax transcript.

The IRS e-File and Free File programs are still available. You can use www.IRS.gov and click on "Free File Your Taxes." If your income is under $66,000, you may use the "Free File Software." With any income level, you may file using "Fillable Forms." These IRS filing programs may be used by taxpayers filing returns by October 15, 2018.
