I have stage 4 cancer & haven’t worked since October & I have massive medical bills. Can I get a pmt plan for money I owe or should I ask for an extension?

I'm sorry for your trouble.

If you can't pay by April 17th, make an Installment Plan request. An extension is only to file late, not to pay late.

The best thing you can do is pay it before April 18 this year. If you can't you can fill out Form 9465 Installment Agreement Request. You will be liable for penalties and interest.

Understand your agreement & avoid default

  • Your future refunds will be applied to your tax debt until it is paid in full;
  • Pay at least your minimum monthly payment when it's due;
  • Include your name, address, SSN, daytime phone number, tax year and return type on your payment;
  • File all required tax returns on time & pay all taxes in-full and on time (contact us to change your existing agreement if you cannot);
  • Make all scheduled payments even if we apply your refund to your account balance; and
  • Ensure your statement is sent to the correct address, contact us if you move or complete and mail Form 8822, Change of Address (PDF).

For complete information, see https://www.irs.gov/individuals/payment-plans-installment-agreements.

TurboTax will give you this option during the Filing section
