Radio PSA text script Last Minute Tips (extensions)

TAXPAYER:

I NEED AN EXTENSION TO FILE MY TAXES.  HOW DO I DO THAT?

NARRATOR:

NEED MORE TIME TO PREPARE YOUR FEDERAL TAX RETURN?

ON I-R-S-DOT GOV, YOU CAN DOWNLOAD FORM 4868 FOR A SIX-MONTH EXTENSION OF TIME.

YOU MUST COMPLETE AND FILE THE FORM BY THE TAX DUE DATE.   

AND IF YOU OWE TAXES, THE EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE DOES NOT GRANT YOU ANY EXTENSION OF TIME TO PAY WHAT YOU OWE.  

TO GET THE FORM, GO TO I-R-S.GOV AND ENTER “FORM 4868” IN THE SEARCH BOX.
