FAQs on Tax Extensions

Is There a Penalty for Applying for an Extension?

No, there is no IRS penalty for filing an extension of time to file your information returns. However, because Form 8809 only provides an extension of time to file your return, if you fail to pay any taxes due by your original deadline, you may incur penalties and interest from the IRS.
