The due date for personal income tax extensions is just around the corner. All those who filed Form 4868 to request an automatic six-month extension will need to file their taxes by October 15, 2021. Don’t forget – the extension only applies to filing the tax return itself. It does not apply to any taxes owed. If you did not pay any taxes owed by the original tax due date, you can expect to owe penalties and interests when you file and pay this month.

Special rules mean that some taxpayers don’t even need to ask for extensions. That includes taxpayers abroad, certain members of the military, and taxpayers affected by certain natural disasters.
