Many Missourians are familiar with the April 15th deadline for filing income tax returns, but another tax deadline is just about here. It’s the October 15th filing deadline for Missourians who requested an extension in filing their documents and/or the money they owe to the Internal Revenue Service .
Michael Devine, Internal Revenue Service Media Relations Specialist for Missouri & Kansas, says if you owe money it is important to pay what you owe as quickly as possible. Interest on money owed has been growing since April 15th, but additional penalties will be assessed if the actual return is not filed by tomorrow.
If you do not have all the documents you need, file anyway and enclose a note to the IRS. If you owe money, pay what you can afford to pay. The IRS will work with you on a payment schedule.
