Did you miss the Monday, April 18 tax deadline? If you answered yes officials at the Internal Revenue Service say file as soon as possible. IRS officials say while taxpayers due a refund receive no penalty for filing late, those who owe and missed the deadline without requesting an extension should file quickly to limit penalties and interest.

Families who don't owe taxes can still file and still get money back

David Tucker with the IRS says families who do not owe taxes to the IRS can still file their 2021 tax return and claim the Child Tax Credit for the 2021 tax year at any point until April 15, 2025, without any penalty. This year also marks the first time in history that many families with children in Puerto Rico will be eligible to claim the Child Tax Credit, which has been expanded to provide up to $3,600 per child.

Do you qualify for extra time to file your taxes?

Tucker says some taxpayers automatically qualify for extra time to file and pay taxes due without penalties and interest.

A news release from the IRS says those taxpayers include;
Members of the military who served or are currently serving in a combat zone. They may qualify for an additional extension of at least 180 days to file and pay taxes.
Support personnel in combat zones or a contingency operation in support of the Armed Forces. They may also qualify for a filing and payment extension of at least 180 days.
Taxpayers outside the United States. U.S. citizens and resident aliens who live and work outside the U.S. and Puerto Rico, including military members on duty who don’t qualify for the combat zone extension, may qualify for a 2-month filing and payment extension.
Some disaster victims. Those who qualify have more time to file and pay what they owe.

Didn't file cause you didn't make enough money in 2021?

If you decided not to file a tax return because you didn't earn enough money to be required to file you may miss out on receiving a refund. IRS officials say the only way to get a refund is to file a tax return. Are you still waiting for your refund? Check irs.gov for the where's my refund tool.
