Get more time before filing your return
We understand that sometimes you need some more time before you're ready to file or maybe you're still waiting for some documents. Luckily, the IRS allows you to file a 6-month extension and if you're getting a refund there's nothing more you have to do. If you owe, you can make a payment.
Every year millions of people take advantage of filing an extension.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is an extension?
An extension tells the IRS and any relevant State Tax Authorities that you need additional time to file your taxes. An electronic submission is filed with the IRS and States that automatically extends the deadline for filing by 6 months. It’s important to note an extension is just an extension to FILE the tax return, but not an extension to pay any balances due you may have. Any balances due to the IRS or States should still be paid to the IRS / States by the original April 15th filing deadline to avoid interest charges and / or late payment fees.
2. How much does an extension cost?
Although other services may charge you for your federal and state extensions, Visor does not charge. We just ask that you work with us to file your taxes this year. Which you'll pay for when you file.
3. Are there any negative implications of filing an extension?
No. Many taxpayers file extensions every year because they take longer to gather their documentation and / or their situation is more complicated requiring additional time to properly prepare their tax returns.
4. Does filing an extension affect my refund?
No, there is no impact on your refunds if you file an extension.
