Monday April 15, 2024, is the federal deadline for filing your 2023 individual income tax return. This is also the last day to request a six-month filing extension.

An important thing to note is that this is only an extension to file, not an extension to pay. Any tax due for 2023 is due by April 15th. If you expect to owe tax for 2023, you should send a payment to the IRS for the estimated amount due with your extension form.

Payments made after April 15th are subject to penalties and interest. Additionally, if you fail to file an extension, late filing penalties will apply if you owe tax.
