If my extension is not approved before midnight will i be penalized by the IRS for not filing on time?

I just want to be clear that if I filed an extension on April 18th and have not received an approval that I will not be penalized by the IRS for not filing my taxes on time? I do not owe money and will be receiving a refund.

As long as you file the extension by 11:59 pm tonight in your time zone, the extension is considered timely filed

Most states issue an automatic extension when a federal extension has been granted.  For information on your state's extension policy, please see the following FAQ:
