File an IRS Tax Extension

TaxAct makes it easy to quickly file an income tax extension

File for a tax extension with TaxAct by midnight on April 18 to have until October 17, 2022 to finish and file your 2021 tax return. E-file IRS Form 4868 free to receive confirmation when the IRS accepts your extension. If you need a state tax extension, TaxAct will guide you through those steps as well.

Important reminder — an extension to file is not an extension to pay.

Let TaxAct help you estimate your taxes, then easily pay when filing your extension to avoid penalties and minimize interest.
