Tax Guru-Ker$tetter Letter
Tuesday, March 23, 2004
We have already started preparing and submitting the first extension requests for 2003 1040s. Every year, as more people learn the benefits of filing their returns after April 15, I seem to do fewer tax returns by the normal April 15 due date. In fact, right now I am working on several 2002, as well as a few 2001, 1040s that have had their due dates extended to April 15, 2004.
You can download the official Federal extension form directly from IRS.
Each state is different in regard to whether or not you need to send in a special form. Most states will simply honor the IRS extension and only require their own form to be sent in if you are including a payment.
