Well, first of all, the tax returns weren't due on the 15th.

They are due today, Tuesday, the 18th.

So, you can still file for an automatic extension.

In order for your federal extension to be valid, you must have at least 90% of the tax due by today, so you may need to make a payment with your extension.

Here's a link to the federal extension form:

You didn't identify the state you are in so I don't know if you need a state extension or not.

Let me know if I can further assist you.

Please remember to rate my response as that is the only way I will receive credit from the site for assisting you this morning.

Thanks very much,
