Need More Time to File Your Tax Return? - YouTube video text script

HI… I’M NEAL… AND I WORK FOR THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE.        

OK… SO APRIL 15TH IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER.     

STILL HAVEN’T FILED YOUR TAX RETURN?     

WELL… IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU NEED MORE TIME… DON'T WORRY AND DON'T PANIC.         

YOU CAN ASK FOR AN EXTENSION OF TIME BY FILING FORM 4868.          

KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS AN EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE YOUR TAX RETURN…NOT AN EXTENSION OF TIME TO PAY.       

THIS WILL GIVE YOU SIX MORE MONTHS…UNTIL OCTOBER 15TH… TO GET YOUR TAX RETURN TO THE I-R-S.                

YOU MAY FILE FORM 4868 ELECTRONICALLY BY USING FREE FILE ON I-R-S-DOT-GOV OR BY MAILING IT TO US.        

IT’S IMPORTANT TO NOTE … YOU NEED TO FILE YOUR EXTENSION FORM BY APRIL 15TH.       

IF YOU EXPECT TO OWE TAXES… YOU SHOULD SEND YOUR BEST ESTIMATE OF THAT AMOUNT WITH YOUR EXTENSION TO AVOID ANY POTENTIAL LATE FEES.

GET ALL THE DETAILS AT I-R-S-DOT GOV.
