General FAQ's back to top



  • 1. If I file for an extension, am I still required to pay my tax now?

  • Yes, an extension of time to file your return does not grant you any extension of time to pay your tax liability.

  • 2. Do I need to file an extension if I'm expecting a refund?

  • 3. How can I check the status of my tax extension?
