What if you missed the Federal Tax Return Deadline for California?
An extension may be available for your tax filing deadlines and payment deadlines. This extension is only available if Form 4868 has been filed. It’s the IRS Application for Automatic Extension Of Time to File U.S. Tax Returns. Individual Income Tax Return. The original deadline for filing Form 4868 must be met. If you are physically located outside the United States at that time, Form 4868 cannot be filed after the deadline.
You cannot file for an extension if you have been granted an extension but failed to meet the extended deadline. The actual tax return filing is your next filing.
You cannot avoid penalties for missing tax deadlines if you don’t show reasonable cause to the IRS. You might have to show the IRS reasonable cause if you are unable to file your taxes on time due to a natural disaster, serious illness or unavoidable absence.
