Please be aware that an extension of time to file your return does not grant you any extension of time to pay your tax liability.

There are three ways to request an automatic extension of time to  file a U.S. individual income tax return.

  1. You can file Form 4868 and pay all or part of your estimated income tax due using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment  System (EFTPS) or by using a credit or debit card.
  2. You can file Form 4868 electronically by accessing IRS e-file using your home computer or by using a tax professional who  uses e-file.
  3. You can file a paper Form 4868.
