Need More Time To File Your Taxes? Get A Deadline Extension.

IRS Form 4868 tax deadline extension
The dreaded April, 15 tax deadline, will be here before you know it.

Don’t let it sneak up on you. In fact, go ahead and tell the IRS when you’re going to pay your taxes.

That’s right. By filing a Form 4868 tax extension, you can get an automatic personal tax deadline extension.

If you’ve misplaced any forms or information, or you’re just too busy to do your taxes, a tax extension Form 4868 can be invaluable.

Let’s cover the basics of Form 4868.

What is Form 4868 and how does it work?


The Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S Individual Income Tax Return, better known as IRS Form 4868 extends the deadline of the income tax return as far as six-months (October 15, 2020).

Form 4868 is only for individual taxpayers, but businesses can file Form 7004, which has a similar effect.

You will not need to explain why you need a tax extension, but you will need to estimate your tax liability on the Form.

What information do you need to file Form 4868?


  • Full name, address, & social security number.
  • If you're filing jointly, you'll need the same information for your spouse.
  • Total tax liability & Payment for 2019.
  • Balance due if any.

How do you request a tax extension?

3 Simple Tips For Supporting The Trucker In Your Life On Valentines Day

Trucker calling on the CB radio on valentines day
Driving a truck over the road can be difficult on holidays like Valentine’s day.

It feels like everyone in the world is spending time alone with their partner.

It might already be Valentine’s day, but it’s not too late to make the trucker in your life feel special.

To make things a little bit easier on you and your trucker, here are three things you can do to support them this Valentine’s day.

1. Skype or Facetime


One of the easiest things you can do to help your trucker to know you care is to Facetime or Skype them.

Your trucker should be able to find Wi-Fi at their truck stop or connect to cellular service

A regular phone call is great too but being able to see another familiar face can make a big difference when you miss home.

2. Help them feel connected


Similarly, anything else you can do to make your trucker feel connected with the outside world is awesome!

Consider using an online service to order them a special meal. Or try sending them a romantic email since it can be difficult to get a real letter to them.

3. Celebrate later


Another great way to console your trucker on Valentine’s day is to decide that you will celebrate it later.

Choose a day when you can be alone together and make it your own Valentine’s day.

If you pick your own day, there’s nothing stopping you from having a great Valentine’s day with your trucker!

4. Show them you care by helping with their taxes


Nobody likes taxes. Show your trucker you care by taking those taxes off their plate.
