Form 4868 Due Date

Posted by taxguru on February 18, 2006

I just printed out my first 2005 extension form (Form 4868) for a client and was disappointed that nowhere does the version that Lacerte prints out say that this year’s first automatic extension is for six months. Knowing that this will create a lot of confusion, as well as a lot of anxiety around August 15, I used my Microsoft Publisher program to create a label that we will be sticking on each 4868 we prepare.

That’s still no guarantee that everyone will actually read the date, as I’ve noted with how many clients overlook the extended dates printed on the other extension forms.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
