An Extension to File is not an Extension to Pay Your Taxes

As the 2019 personal tax deadline of July 15th approaches, we just want to remind everyone that filing for an extension means that you now have until October 15th to file your tax return, but your taxes still need to all be paid in by July 15th. An extension to file is not an extension to pay.

The IRS has also stated that they resumed processing paper returns. So if you mailed your return into the IRS instead of doing an efile, you most likely experienced a lengthy delay and most likely haven’t gotten your refund yet. But the good news is the IRS is back to processing them. The IRS also states that if you already sent in your paper copy and it hasn’t been processed yet, do not send in another one and to wait for the first one you sent in to be processed.

Please consult your tax advisor on all the above issues.
