Filing an Extension and Filing late
It’s much better to “file” and not “pay” your taxes than it is to not file your tax returns at all. Find out why. Some taxpayers believe that filing an extension gives them more time to pay their taxes without penalty. This is not always true and this is NOT why the IRS grants extension. An extension only gives you more time to file. You still are expected to pay in your estimated tax balance by the original deadline to avoid penalties and interest.
