Answer Absolutely. In fact you must. Sooner the better obviously, but, late filing isn't even penalized that badly (if at all if you have a reasonable ca…use excuse), and frequently your doing so will get a refund that you had coming, (filing is different than paying). Note: Since the statute of limitations(the laws about how long you can be audited and assessed for mis-reporting), starts running with the filing of the return, unless you file a return your ALWAYS liable for it. So apply for something from the govt., like social security or such, even years from now...have the computer see a missing filing...get a bill...with all penalties, interests, etc...not that unlikely.
What is the deadline date to file 2007 tax return in order to receive 2008 government refund of 600.00 beginning in May 2008?
Midnight, April 30, 2008 You can also file your taxes online. For more information, see the Related Link.
For individuals and families, the tax extension deadline is October 15, which gives you a 6 month extension of time to file your taxes from the April 15 tax deadline. Yo…u can file your extension online with an e-file provider like FileLater (http://filelater.com).
Understanding, filing and paying are 2 different things. You must pay, through withholding or estimated payments, through the year (basically at least quarterly). T…he amount you have paid in MUST meet certain thresholds or you will pay a (frequently substantial) penalty and interest later. Returns - the filing - squaring up your estimated payments to your actual amount needed, is due - as always April 15 (+a day for legal holidays weekends or such if needed). Extensions of when to file are easy and automatic, for up to 6 months (again when to file, not to pay...any underpayment will be charged even with an extesnion of when to file).
You can get an automatic six-month extension of the deadline for filing your income tax return. To request an extension, submit Form 4868 (Application for Extension of Time …to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return). It's important to remember that the extension gives you extra time for getting your tax return in order for the IRS. But it doesn't extend the time you have to pay tax due (if you're not getting a refund). Any amount not paid by the April deadline is assessed interest. A late payment penalty is charged if you haven't paid at least 90 percent of your total tax by the April deadline. If your return is completed but you can't pay the full amount of tax due, the IRS wants you to file your return on time and pay as much as you can at that time.
You can file your taxes anytime after your extension, be sure to file before October 15th of that filing year. You may suffer penalties and interest higher than what you would… have if you filed by that date. Also, remember to at least pay something with your extension to show the IRS that you have intentions of paying your federal liability. It is best to pay as much as you can to pay down the debt.
You have 3 years from the tax deadline to file an amendment for that year. For example, the tax deadline to file your 2009 taxes is April 15, 2010. You have until April 15, 20…13 to file an amendment for that year.

If you don't file your taxes and are due a refund, the U.S. Treasury simply keeps your "donation." However, if you owe additional tax, file your return right away. The penalti…es for not filing are much higher than the penalties for not paying, and the longer you wait, the worse it gets. Please see the related link for information on the penalties for not meeting the deadline.
