Individual tax returns are due on April 15th, but they can be extended until October 15th.
Taxes must be paid in full by April 15th. Any balance due as of April 15th is subject to penalties and interest, even if the return has been extended.
Filing Late: The penalty for filing after April 15th (or after October 15th if the return was extended) is the worst. It is 5% of the balance due per month, not to exceed 25%.
Paying Late: The penalty for paying after April 15th is .5% (one half percent) of the balance due per month. This penalty doubles to 1% if you don’t pay in full within 10 days of receiving an IRS notice.
Interest: Interest rates vary with the economy. In the last few years they have been in the range of 3-5%.
