Avoid Late Filing Penalties

If you fail to file either a tax extension or tax return within the appropriate deadline (March 15, 2018 for most businesses and April 18, 2018 for most individuals), the IRS will charge interest and penalties on any unpaid Federal taxes.

If you do not file and you owe taxes, the failure-to-file penalty is 5% per month (up to 5 months) of the amount due. If your return is more than 60 days late, you may be subject to a $135 minimum penalty. The IRS will also impose a failure-to-pay penalty of 0.5% per month (up to 25%) of the amount due if you file a return or extension, but don’t pay all your taxes on time.
