ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA – (DRG News) There are just a few days until the April 17 tax deadline and the Internal Revenue Service reminds anyone who has yet to file that they can get an automatic six month tax filing extension. In South Dakota, the IRS says about 22,300 taxpayers are expected to request an extension of time to file their tax return. Carrie Resch, IRS spokesperson says about 25 to 30 percent of returns are filed in the remaining weeks of the filing season. She says an extension can offer some extra time if you can’t make the deadline and it helps filers avoid mistakes that sometimes happen when people are rushed. Resch says the easiest way to get an extension is online through the Free File link at www.IRS.gov. Other options are requesting an extension through a paid tax preparer, use tax preparation software or by filing a paper Form 4868 found at IRS.gov.
