NOTICE ABOUT EXTENSIONS

The Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service announced on Saturday, March 21, that the federal tax filing due date is automatically extended from April 15 to July 15.

Taxpayers can also defer federal income tax payments due on April 15, 2020, to July 15, 2020, without penalties and interest, regardless of the amount owed. This deferment applies to all taxpayers, including individuals, trusts and estates, corporations and other non-corporate tax filers, as well as those who pay self-employment tax.

You do not need to file a form or otherwise notify the IRS to qualify for this filing extension and payment relief. If you need additional time to file after July 15, we can request an extension by filing Form 4868. It is still not clear what the extended due date will be after filing Form 4868, but presumably it will be the normal extension date of October 15.      

This announcement comes following the President’s emergency declaration last week pursuant to the Stafford Act. The Stafford Act is a federal law designed to bring an orderly and systematic means of federal natural disaster and emergency assistance for state and local governments in carrying out their responsibilities to aid citizens. It was enacted in 1988.

We will update you on any forthcoming details. 

Before You Begin

in the questionnaire below, we ask only general questions regarding your work in the United States and abroad, and your business, rental and investment income. The only identifying information we request is your name and email address. If you are a foreign national and not a permanent resident, we must know your visa history and the number of days you were present in the United States for at least the last three years, so you should have your passport and travel dates handy. For a general menu of our fees for various forms see our General Fees Per Form.

There are potentially 87 short screens of questions - but don't panic - virtually nobody is required to answer that many questions. You are only presented with the screens relevant to you, so you will likely see only a fraction of the 87 screens. The survey is shorter for US citizens and residents, and longer for foreign nationals with work visas. The completion time is anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes, depending on your situation. Finally, if you don't see a question below asking for your name, it means the server is just down temporarily. Please check back.

Let's Get Started With Your Quote Request

If you must leave the form before you submit it, your answers should be saved in your browser. Please be sure to answer each question carefully so that we can properly determine your best filing strategy. The correct answer to each question is critical for us to properly determine the tax forms you are required to file and whether you are potentially eligible for treaty benefits. If you are a foreign national and would like to determine whether you are classified as a nonresident alien or a resident alien, see Your Residency Status Questionnaire before you start.

Oh, and one more thing - Don't hit the "PREVIOUS" link. Because of the conditional logic of the form, this will probably create an error message and it will be necessary to start again.
