File for a Tax Extension

If an individual needs more time to complete their 2022 individual federal tax return, they can request an extension until October 16, 2023 by filing Form 4868 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File US Individual Income Tax Return).

If it is determined that the taxpayer may owe tax when they file their extension, they must include their payment with the extension.

April 18, 2023 is also the deadline for the following:
