to get an extra six months to file, until Oct. 15. Although an extension will give you an extra six months to get your tax
return to the IRS, it does not extend the time you have to pay any tax you owe. You will owe interest on any amount not paid
by the April 15 deadline. You may also owe a penalty for failing to pay on time.

and pay as much as you can. You should pay the balance as soon as possible to minimize penalty and interest charges. If you
need more time to pay, you can apply for a payment plan using the Online Payment Agreement tool on IRS.gov. You can also send
Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request, with your return. If you are unable to make payments because of a financial hardship,
