There’s a little more than a month left before the April 15th deadline. If you aren’t able to file by April 15th, you can request a filing extension with the IRS (and possibly your state). While IRS has no problem with delaying your filing until October, many people forget that they still expect your payment on April 15th.
It is recommended to make an estimated payment of your anticipated tax by April 15th in order to avoid late payment penalties. If you can’t afford to pay in full, pay what you can and make payments between now and October. IRS charges penalties based on the shortfall and how late the payments are, so paying even a portion now will help to limit penalties and interest.
If you are still looking for a tax preparer, Clergy Financial Resources’ deadline for documents is March 15th. If you provided a completed tax organizer and documents after this date, we will still try to file by April 15th for you but it is not guaranteed. If you still need to order a tax organizer, visit our store at https://www.clergytaxnet.com/store/ today.
