HelloYou can request an extension of your personal return filing using form 4868. This would allow till October for the personal return to be filed.It only extends filing not payment so if you generally owe tax when you file you need to pay what you expect to owe with the extension by April 18th (we receive 3 extra days this filing year).You are required to click a positive rating if I am to be credited with the response.You have to actively click on a rating and click submit.
