Tax Extension

Can you file an extension after the deadline?

If you can’t file by April 15 and are wondering what to do if you miss the tax-filing deadline, the IRS will grant you a 6 month filing extension. While the extension gives you more filing time, you still have to pay at least 90% of your owed taxes by April 15th to avoid fines. But, what happens if you miss the tax extension deadline? If October 15 comes and goes without you having a chance to file, the consequences could be severe, depending on what you owe.

If you miss the tax extension deadline and…

You are owed a refund by the IRS:

Nothing is likely to happen. Since you don’t owe the IRS money, you won’t be fined. If you want your refund, however, you will have to file. The IRS will not remind you that they owe you money; you must file to receive your refund. If you do not file within 3 years, you will lose your refund. So, while there is no necessary rush, there is a chance you could lose out on money owed to you if you do not file.


You owe money to the IRS:

Expect fines and penalties. If you do not pay what you owe by April 15, you start accruing the 5% failure-to-pay fine for every month you are late. If you miss the October 15 deadline and still have not paid nor filed, the IRS will file a substitute return for you and they will not include any deductions that you may be subject to. If you still do not pay once the substitute return has been filed, the IRS will begin collection against you and take hold of your assets.

Paramount Experience

Many people do not know how a professional tax and accounting firm differs from a bookkeeper or tax preparer. The main difference when working with a professional tax and accounting firm, such as Paramount, is that our firm utilizes the services of CPAs, EAs, and Attorneys who are distinguished from other finance professionals by stringent qualification and licensing requirements. Paramount has worked hard to create relationships to deliver the value that our clients expect. In fact, our goal is to be the No. 1 Filing Late Taxes firm in America. So when you ask yourself, "Where can I find Filing Late Taxes services near me?"... think no further than Paramount!

Whether you are filing personal taxes or you own a business, if you are not already using a professional tax and accounting firm, you have most likely already missed out on major tax benefits, deductions and credits. This is because a professional tax and accounting firm utilizes licensed professionals such as Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), EAs and Attorneys, who can not only advise individuals on personal financial matters but who are qualified to advise businesses, financial institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies on a wide range of financial topics. Our strict standards ensure that we understand the complicated tax laws and how to implement strategies that return the most benefits to individuals and businesses.
