by DerdriuMarriner

Mailing addresses for 2023 Form 4868 filed in 2024, due date Monday, April 15, are provided for taxpayers applying to extend the April 15 due date for forms 1040 and 1040SR.

Mailing addresses for 2023 Form 4868 filed in 2024, due date Monday, April 15, are provided for the convenience of taxpayers applying in paper format for an extension of the April 15 due date for federal individual income tax return forms 1040 and 1040SR.

Form 4868, entitled Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, avails an automatic extension to federal individual income taxpayers for filing forms 1040 and 1040SR. The extension applies to tax-owing taxpayers as well as to refund-expecting taxpayers.

Form 4868 extends the due date for the filing of completed forms 1040 and 1040SR. The extension does not extend the due date for payment of owed taxes.Taxpayers who estimate that they owe tax on their federal individual income returns, however, are not required to include full or partial payment of owed taxes in filing Form 4868..

"You can get an automatic 6-month extension if, no later than the date your return is due, you file Form 4868," according to "What If You Can't File on Time?" (page 8) in Tax Year 2023 1040 (and 1040-SR) Instructions booklet, published Dec. 27, 2023, by the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Internal Revenue Service. "An automatic 6-month extension to file doesn't extend the time to pay your tax. If you don’t pay your tax by the original due date of your return, you will owe interest on the unpaid tax and may owe penalties."

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 2023 Form 4868 has a 2024 filing deadline of Monday, April 15.

Form 4868 allows for a six-month extension on filing federal individual income tax return forms 1040 and 1040SR.
Form 4868 is entitled Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return.
Form 4868 is entitled Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return.

Three Options for Requesting an Automatic Extension of the Monday, April 15, 2024, Due Date for 2023 Forms 1040 and 1040SR

 

Three options for requesting an automatic extension of the due date of Monday, April 15, 2024, for filing 2023 federal individual income tax return forms 1040 and 1040SR are available, as stated on 2023 Form 4868 Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return (URL: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4868.pdf). The extension request must be made on or before Monday, April 15, 2024.

Note: The observance of Patriots' Day on Monday, April 15, in 2024 has necessitated the designation of Wednesday, April 17, as Tax Day for federal filers in Maine and Massachusetts. Hence, filers in Maine and Massachusetts have a due date of April 17 for filing 1040 and 1040-SR returns and for filing Form 4868. Patriots' Day is celebrated annually in the two New England states on the third Monday in April. In 2024, the third Monday in April falls on April 15.

One of the three options for Form 4868 entails filing in paper format. Including full or partial payment of the estimated tax due with Form 4868 is optional.

Another option allows for filing Form 4868 electronically. Electronic filing involves accessing IRS e-file through the taxpayer's tax software or through a tax professional who uses e-file.

A third option's feature of an electronic payment eliminates filing Form 4868. Electronic payment of all or part of the estimated tax amount activates an automatic extension. "You can pay online with a direct transfer from your bank account using Direct Pay; the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System; a digital wallet such as Click to Pay, PayPal, and Venmo; cash; or a debit or credit card. You can also pay by phone using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System or by debit or credit card" (Form 4868, "How to Make a Payment: Making Payments Electronically").
