Extensions filed on by April 18th are fast, easy and only $9.95.

When you e-file at, tax filing is fast and it’s backed by all the tax pros at Liberty Tax.

Though the regular tax filing deadline of April 15 has been moved to April 18 this year, as it falls on a holiday in the District of Columbia, 3 extra days probably isn’t enough for most last-minute taxpayers. And while no one can put off paying taxes, taxpayers can delay filing them for six months—and with eSmart Tax, filing for a tax extension this year is as easy as ever and is available for only $9.95. Rather than filling out paper Form 4868 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return) and worrying about whether or not it’s mailed and filed with the IRS by April 18, 2011, taxpayers throughout the U.S. can easily, quickly and affordably file for an extension online at until the tax filing deadline.

“Paper filing can slow things down dramatically and still leaves you to complete the process on your own,” said Ray Shively, Vice President of Online Products for Liberty Tax Service. “When you e-file at, tax filing is fast and it’s backed by all the tax pros at Liberty Tax, so you’re not alone when you have a question.”

Taxpayers who cannot complete their tax returns by the tax filing deadline of April 18 must file for a tax extension by that date. If taxes are owed, the IRS will charge a late filing penalty which ranges anywhere from 5%-25% of the amount due for each month the return is late. They’ll also charge a late payment penalty (up to 25%), plus interest. So, taxpayers should be sure to properly estimate and pay their 2010 tax liability with their extension. There are special exceptions to these rules, however, such as for legal citizens and resident aliens that are out of the country on the due date.

Wherever there’s an internet connection, though, eSmart Tax’s online tax extension application allows taxpayers to quickly and efficiently estimate and pay the taxes they will owe in a secure environment. The tax experts at Smart Tax and Liberty Tax Service are also standing by to answer any tax or technical questions customers may have while filing their extension.
