Tax Extension

Missed this year’s tax deadline? Don’t stress, you can still file for a tax extension. If you need more time to file, the IRS grants tax extensions. If you need tax extension help in {fran_territroy_name}, Paramount Tax & Accounting has you covered. Please read below for detailed information on tax extensions:

How do I file a tax extension?

You can file for a tax extension by filling out the IRS Form 4868 online or printing it out and mailing it in.

How long is the tax extension?

If a tax extension is requested by the April 15 deadline, the IRS will grant taxpayers an additional 6 months of filing time. Tax extensions can be granted for any reason, as long as you file for an extension on or before April 15.

Is there a penalty for filing a tax extension?

While the IRS will extend your filing deadline to October 15 if you file for an extension, you still have to pay by the April 15 deadline. A tax extension only extends your filing time, not your payment time. If you are able to pay at least 90% of your taxes by the time you request an extension to file, then you will not face penalties. If you do not pay by the April 15 deadline, you may face a failure to pay penalty. This penalty is 0.5% of your owed amount and it starts accruing monthly the day after the deadline, with a maximum fine of 25%.

Rob has been our tax accountant and business advisor since 1998, when our area was devastated by flooding.The first thing he did was revise and correct discrepancies from our previous tax preparer. Early on in our relationship, he represented us before the IRS. His efforts and knowledge resulted in a very positive outcome.Rob continually updates his knowledge of tax laws and regulations to stay current, helping all his clients avoid costly errors and unnecessary taxation.You can count on his advice being ethically sound, up-to-date, and custom-tailored to each client. This is unique in our experience. As a thorough professional, Rob is available not just at tax time, but throughout the year for advice on tax matters and valuable discussions on business decision-making.He would rate six stars if that were available.

I was a nervous wreck about many many years of Tax problems. When I entered Robs office he was understanding, reassuring and confident that it could be resolved. For the first time in 12 years I am hopeful. There are a lot of con men out there. Rob seems like the real deal! We have just started the process so I will tell you how it goes when we're done. But I am hopeful we can work with Rob to work it out.

Because we’re CPAs and they're not™

Many people do not know how a CPA differs from a bookkeeper or tax preparer. The CPA designation is one of the most widely recognized and highly trusted professional designations in the business world. CPAs are distinguished from other finance professionals by stringent qualification and licensing requirements. Paramount CPAs have worked hard to obtain their CPA designation, and are committed to working even harder to deliver the value that that designation conveys. In fact, our goal is to be the No. 1 Accounting Firm firm across the United States. So when you ask yourself, "Where can I find Accounting Firm services near me?"... think no further than Paramount

When to upgrade from tax preparer to CPA?

Whether you are filing personal taxes or you own a business, if you are not already using a CPA, you have most likely already missed out on major tax benefits, deductions and credits. This is because Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), such as Paramount, are advisers to not only individuals on personal financial matters but are also licensed to advise businesses, financial institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies on a wide range of financial topics. This strict status and licensure ensures that only CPAs are legally qualified to understand complicated tax laws and how to to implement strategies that return the most benefits to individuals and businesses.
