Two Months Until the Extension Deadline

Did you file extensions for your clients in April? The deadline for filing their return is approaching fast! The returns will need to be submitted by Monday, October 15, 2018 to avoid a potential late filing penalty.

Tips for Filing Extensions:

  • Be sure to get the returns completed and transmitted before the deadline so if there are any issues with the return you will have time to correct them.
  • Suggest Direct Deposit to your clients to ensure they get their refund as quickly as possible.
  • For military personnel, verify the times spent in combat zones, as they may have more time to file.
  • For any amount due, work with your client to see if a payment plan needs to be created.
