Taxpayers who still haven’t filed their 2018 tax return
Some things taxpayers should know:
- Penalties and interest are only added on unfiled returns if the taxpayer did not pay taxes by the April deadline. Taxpayers who did not file and owe tax should file a tax return and pay as much as they are able to now.
- Some taxpayers may have extra time to file their tax returns and pay any taxes due. These include:
- Some disaster victims
- Military service members
- S. citizens and resident aliens who live and work outside the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
- If a return is filed more than 60 days after the April due date, the minimum penalty is either $210 or 100% of the unpaid tax, whichever is less.
There is no penalty for filing late if a refund is due
