Extension of Time to File — What if You Can’t File on Time?
You must get an extension of time to file if you:
- Are required to file (your income is more than your exemptions), and
- You cannot file your tax return by the April 15, 2015 due date.
Whether you owe additional tax, are due a refund, or are breaking even, you still need to get an extension if filing after April 15, 2015.
Note. Indiana’s extension of time to file, Form IT-9, now extends the filing date to match the federal extension of time to file date plus 30 days (to Nov. 14). Since Nov. 14 falls on a weekend in 2015, filing Form IT-9 will extend the filing date to the next business day, which is Nov. 16, 2015.
