Please ask your question here: How does the IRS know if a taxpayer is out of the country on April 15th for the automatic 2 month extension?
Original Fast Forward Academy test bank question:
Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return, will provide the taxpayer with the following:
A. An automatic extension of 2 months for taxpayers out of the country on April 15
B. An automatic extension of 4 months to pay the taxes due
C. An automatic extension of 6 months to file the return
D. An automatic extension of 4 months to file the return
A request for an automatic 6-month extension may be filed (via paper form 4868 or electronically) by the due date of the return. For most taxpayers this allows until October 15 to submit a return. The IRS will automatically allow a taxpayer who is out of the country on April 15th an extra 2 months to file their return and pay any tax due.
