I filed on and I think my tax return is due on Oct 15th. Can I extend a little more? I expect a small refund. Thanks

pretty sure you just gotta go w/ you got on 10/15, then if you gotta amend to get it right, you file an amended return... but you better pre-order a Mac Pro to be on the safe side.



Sometimes it is what it is...
and then there's times when it's really better.

My understanding is that if Uncle Sam owes YOU money, it doesn't matter when you file.

Anyone who knows better can edumacate me!

That used to be the case - now I'm pretty sure you forfeit a return if you are late ( by too much ? )

IRS says you have 3 years to file and get your refund, however, waiting can have unintended consequences. You may need filed returns to get loans, for examples. This link says "Small business" but it applies to individuals too.

what you don't want is for the IRS to prepare your return for you and then send you a bill, that would be a mess to straighten out.
Just file as soon as you can.

There should be another form longer than the 1/3 page for the first time. You'll forfeit your refund after three years.

You must file three years from the filing date to 'save' your refund. If the filing date is April 15, then you must have your return postmarked by April 15 + three years. If the filing date is April 17 because of holidays and weekends, then you must file by April 17 + three years. If the filing date is April 15 but in three years that years filing date is April 16 or 17 because of holidays or weekend then you must file by April 15 irrespective that it is a holiday.

Remember, filing = postmarked. It used to be that the three year deadline was the date the IRS received the return rather than the postmark. But about a dozen years ago there were conflicting decisions (received vs. postmarked) from two Circuit Courts and the IRS changed the rule to postmarked. A prior Tax Court decision had determined that filed meant received based on the plain reading of the law. Lots and lots of people had procrastinated and postmarked their refund returns three years after the filing date and lost their refunds by a few days. I was close to being one of those procrastinators, having my refund denied (postmarked April 14, received April 16). But the IRS rule change was retroactive to my return and I got my refund.
