After an extra two days to file, federal income tax returns are due today.
If you think you may miss today's deadline, you can file an extension with the IRS. Use form 48-68 if you expect a refund. That gives taxpayers an extra six months automatically, making October 15 the deadline to file without a late-filing penalty.
For those who owe taxes, the extension will not help. Payments still must be submitted by today's deadline, but they can be made in installments. Use form 94-65, which will come with fees.
Taxpayers had an extra two days to file because April 15th fell on a Sunday and yesterday was a holiday in Washington, D.C.
