What To Do When You Missed the Extended Tax Deadline
Updated: Nov 4
The last tax extension filing deadline for the tax year 2020 was October 15th, and although some of you may have rushed to meet the deadline, others may have missed it and are unsure what to do. If you missed the deadline for submitting a tax extension, review these 5 key questions and answers to help you figure out what to do next.
Do I Still File?
Yes, you should submit your taxes as quickly as possible. Even if your income was below the IRS filing threshold of $12,400 for single filers and $24,800 for married filers in 2020, you should still file your taxes if you had federal taxes deducted or if you are eligible for a refundable tax credit like the Earned Income Tax Credit, as you may be due a refund.
Will I Be Charged Penalty Fees By The IRS?
There is no penalty for filing late if you are expecting a tax refund. Penalties are determined by the amount owed. You will be charged late filing fees if you submit after the October 15 extended tax deadline and owe money.
