Tax day reminders for all taxpayers

The filing and payment deadline for most 2022 federal tax returns has arrived. Here’s what last minute filers need to know.

Taxpayers who need more time can request an extension
Taxpayers can request an extension of time to file to avoid a failure to file penalty, but they still need to pay their taxes or risk a penalty for failing to pay. An extension gives taxpayers until Oct. 16, 2023, to file their 2022 tax return.

When a taxpayer can’t pay their tax bill
Even with an extension to file, taxpayers still must pay any taxes they owe by the deadline. If they can’t pay by the deadline, they should still file their return or request an extension, or they’ll face possible penalties.

Here are the steps a taxpayer should take when they can’t pay a tax bill:

  1. File their tax return or request an extension of time to file by the deadline.

  2. Pay as much as possible by the April due date.

  3. Review options the IRS offers to help taxpayers:

Some disaster victimstaxpayers living overseasmilitary service members and eligible support personnel in combat zones have more time beyond the April deadline to file and pay their taxes.

Taxpayers should also check their state filing and payment deadlines, which may be different from the federal April 18 deadline. A list of state tax division websites is available through the Federation of Tax Administrators.

Quarterly estimated tax payments also due
April 18 is also the deadline for first quarter estimated tax payments for tax year 2023.

These payments are normally made by self-employed individuals, retirees, investors, businesses, corporations and others that do not have taxes withheld or employees that don’t have enough taxes withheld by their employers throughout the year.
