Get an extension
Need more time to file your taxes? For a six-month extension, fill out Form 4868 (pdf). If you owe no additional tax or are due a refund, an extension is generally automatic with no form required. But you still could face possible late penalties and interest on federal and state extensions for not paying any tax you owe by the original deadline.
