Taxes

I'm unable to file by the deadline, what do I do?

File Form 4868, "Extension of Time to File", which extends the deadline to file until August 15. If you owe any taxes though, you must still mail your estimated tax payment by April 15, or you will be assessed penalty and interest as of April 15 on any payment owed.
