Extending Your Tax Return
Are there consequences for extending?
Overall, extending your tax return can be very beneficial for your business. It can give you more time to make sure your taxes are accurate and to catch deductions that can lower your tax bill.
After filing an extension, you have an additional six months to file your tax return. Filing an extension gives you additional time to file your tax return, but it does not give you additional time to pay your taxes. The IRS will charge a late penalty of 0.5% of the amount that was due per month. This means that if you have a tax refund coming, there would be no late payment penalty because nothing was due. There is also a first-year grace period, meaning if this is the first year your tax bill shot up, there will not be a significant tax penalty for paying late.
If you are worried about potential late penalties, meet with our team. We would love to go over your specific situation in more detail.
