What Happens If You Can’t Make It to a Date?

If you don’t submit a return and any payments due by the deadline, you’ll almost certainly face a financial penalty, even if it’s just an extra interest charge. As of 2020, the late filing penalty for a 1040 return is 5% of the tax payable per month, up to a total of 25%, with extra fines piling up beyond 60 days.

How to Electronically File

If you haven’t already done so, you might want to e-file your late return. Many taxpayers can e-file via IRS Free File, but only if their adjusted gross income (AGI) in 2020 was less than $72,000. Other rules may apply, which are enforced by the individual software suppliers who are members of the Free File Alliance.

What Happens If You Don’t Have Enough Money to Pay Your Taxes?

If you can’t pay the tax you owe fully at once, file your return anyway and apply for a payment plan right once. The IRS will usually allow you to pay overtime if you make prior arrangements.

If you owe money to the IRS and don’t want to risk the extra time involved in mailing a check, go to IRS Direct Pay and have the amount deducted immediately from your bank account.
