IRS Tax Extension Application

IRS Tax Extension Application.

I hate to feed anyone’s procrastination habit, because sometimes i get it bad (did someone say boomshine?), but the link above will take you to an IRS approved provider website that will file an income tax deadline extension for you FREE of charge if you do it before April 20th. The vast majority of extension requests are accepted and they postpone your tax filing deadline for 6 months, until October 15th.

Taxextension.com is basically an automated, online way to file a Form 4868. As far as i’m concerned, the ability to efile tax forms goes firmly in the ‘computers make my life better category’. The jury is still out on Boomshine…

    Is there a reason the taxextension.com website is down? I filed an extension with them and now can’t even get onto the website.

    • Hey Casey, I don’t know why the site is down – maybe just a simple server outage. I had received a confirmation of the approval of my extension shortly after filing, so I had not checked back since this post. Maybe if you were to contact BH Enterprises directly they could give you some insight http://whois.domaintools.com/taxextension.com

      Please let us know if you find out…

        Jason, thanks. I eventually figured it out. I see some other tax extension services online. Have you tried any others? The fact that taxextension.com went down makes me want to try someone else next April.

      • I haven’t tried any of the others Casey – but I know that some of them are IRS approved providers of this service, that was why I chose this one. I went by their site recently and it looked like it was up and running. I’m glad to hear you got it all worked out.
