IRS Awards Tax Filing Extension for Santa Barbara County

Take a wild guess Crypto confusion reigns as tax deadline nears

Whoever hasn't filed their 2014 tax return in the next four days will lose their share.

Believe it or not, the process of filing an extension on your taxes is probably a lot more painless than you think.

The deadline is usually April 15th, but due to a combination of things, like the 15th falling on a Sunday and the nation's capital celebrating Emancipation Day, you now have until April 17 at midnight, unless you file for an extension.

Residents who plan to mail their IRS tax returns are encouraged to complete their required paperwork and mail it at the post office prior to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, in order to ensure it has an April 17 postmark. The agency has information here about what you need to do to file for a tax extension.

To find out how much you have to pay, you can use the payment estimator provided by the IRS on their website.
