There is no cost to file an extension on your taxes. Please review the following information on how to file an extension.
An IRS extension gives you until October 16 to file, but it doesn't give you until October to pay your taxes. Those are still due by midnight, April 18.

- Sign in to TurboTax, then select MyTurboTax > Easy Extension.
