"And if you don't make that payment, you can have a penalty and interest charges racking up for those six months", said Rebecca Walser, a tax attorney. Therefore, your new deadline becomes October 15th, 2018.

As a corporate tax specialist, Haney says the reason her company files extensions is to give themselves more time to gather information.

Last year, the Internal Revenue Service expected about 13 million extension requests to be completed. Any tax liability is still due by the April 17 deadline.
