Tax return extension some qualify instantly. Although the deadline for filing a tax return extension has passed for the large majority of taxpayers filing a IRS tax return, some taxpayers qualify automatically to file depending upon a few set of circumstances. Disaster victims, taxpayers serving in combat zones, and those living abroad automatically have longer to file. An extension of time to file will also automatically process when taxpayers pay all or part of their taxes electronically by this year's original due date of April 18th, 2022. Although taxpayers can file up to six months later when they have an extension, taxes are still owed by the original due date. Tax return extension some qualify instantly.

Disaster victims, victims of the December 2021 tornadoes and flooding in Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee have until May 16, 2022, to file their 2021 returns and pay any tax due, as do victims of Colorado wildfires and straight line winds that began on December 30. In addition, victims of severe storms, flooding and landslides that began on February 4th in Puerto Rico will have until June 15th, 2022, to file and pay. The IRS automatically provides filing and penalty relief to any taxpayer with an IRS address of record located in a federally declared disaster area when at least one area qualifies for FEMA's individual Assistance program. Ordinarily, this means that taxpayers need not contact the IRS to get disaster tax relief.

This relief also includes more time for making contributions to IRA's and other plans and making 2022 estiamted tax payemtns. In some cases, relief is also available to people living outside the disaster area if, for example, they have a business located in the disaster area, have tax records located in the disaster area or are assisting in disaster relief.
