Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
No, the same deadline applies to all returns, April 15 or October 15 with an extension. However, if they don't owe anything, there's really no penalty for not filing on time. All fees and penalties for individuals are calculated from balance due, so if there's a refund or zero liability, there's no penalties.
You're welcome. And if this answered your question, please take a moment to rate my response so that I may receive credit for assisting you today. However, if you need clarification, or want to discuss this issue further, let me know. Thank you.
