Tax season is in full swing right now. However, some people are unable to get their tax returns prepared by April 15. In such cases, the IRS offers extensions. These are automatic six-month extensions. However, you want to make sure that your tax extension is confirmed. While you can file an extension yourself by going through the IRS site, there are services, like FileLater, that can help you file your extension. It does cost money, though, and you can file on your own for less. However, many people like the ease associated with making use of a paid service.
Also, it is worth noting that if you owe money to the IRS, but don’t have the necessary funds, it is possible pay the IRS by setting up an installment plan. The interest rate is usually better than what you would pay if you used some other financing to pay your taxes.
