Tax season is almost over- April 15th is quickly approaching.

  • If you cannot file timely, file an extension for free online by April 15th. An extension does not extend the time you have to pay any tax due. You will owe interest on any amount not paid by the deadline, plus you may owe penalties.

  • Don’t wait to file your tax return just because you owe money. Avoid additional penalties and interest by filing your tax return now and choosing from the available payment options at: Payments. You can pay your balance online using IRS Direct Pay or apply for an online payment agreement.

  • Bring taxes you have withheld closer to what you owe to avoid owing tax next year. Use the IRS withholding calculator and update your withholding through OPM at https://www.servicesonline.opm.gov/.
