Q) I don’t owe taxes. Can I file electronically (e-filing) after April 15?
A) Yes, you can file your taxes electronically after April 15 if you don’t owe any taxes. The IRS allows taxpayers to file their returns electronically until November 15th. If you file your return after April 15th, you may not be eligible for a refund as quickly as if you had filed on time. However, you will not be subject to any late filing penalties if you don’t owe any taxes.
Here are some of the benefits of filing your taxes electronically:
- It is faster and more convenient than mailing your return in.
- There is a lower risk of your return being lost or delayed.
- You can usually get your refund faster if you file electronically.
- It is more secure than mailing your return in.
If you are not sure if you can file your taxes electronically, you can contact the IRS for more information.
