Hi,

...

The deadline to file an extension of time to file your individual tax return is April 18th (April 19th if you live in Maine or Massachusetts).

...

you use this form:

...

Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time To File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return

...

You can also e-file yourextension form for free using Free File. Look for “Free Extensions for Anyone.”
