The deadline to file Individual Tax Returns (1040): April 15
You can request an extension by contacting our office during business hours, or by completing and mailing the Form 4868 (pdf below) and filing with the Internal Revenue Service at the address on the form.
Please note that an extension is only an extension to file not an extension to pay. That means if you think you are going to owe money you will have to include that with your extension to avoid penalties.
May I use Free File if I need to file an extension? YES
