Taxpayers Who Owe and Missed the April 18 Filing Deadline Should File Now to Limit Penalties and Interest; Not Too Late to Claim the Child Tax Credit for 2021
Excerpt Provided Below – Click on News Release link above to read in it’s entirety.
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service encourages taxpayers who missed Monday’s April 18 tax-filing deadline to file as soon as possible. While taxpayers due a refund receive no penalty for filing late, those who owe and missed the deadline without requesting an extension should file quickly to limit penalties and interest.
Families who don’t owe taxes to the IRS can still file their 2021 tax return and claim the Child Tax Credit for the 2021 tax year at any point until April 15, 2025, without any penalty. This year also marks the first time in history that many families with children in Puerto Rico will be eligible to claim the Child Tax Credit, which has been expanded to provide up to $3,600 per child.
Some taxpayers automatically qualify for extra time to file and pay taxes due without penalties and interest, including:
File without penalty to get a tax refund
File to reduce penalties and interest
Individual State Tax Return Extensions:
For more information about deadlines for State returns, extension requirements and penalties, contact and/or refer to the specific state website.
