¿Cómo obtengo una extensión de impuestos?

Updated for Tax Year 2017


OVERVIEW

Averigua cómo presentar una extensión de impuestos federales y extender la fecha límite de presentación hasta octubre.


Información general

Tus impuestos sobre la renta personal siempre vencen el 15 de abril, a menos que el 15 caiga en un día festivo o fin de semana. Si estás teniendo problemas para cumplir con esta fecha límite, puedes presentar un breve formulario y obtener una prórroga del plazo para presentar la declaración. El IRS (siglas en inglés de Servicio de Impuestos Internos) ofrece la extensión, independientemente de las razones por las que lo necesites. Así que si simplemente te olvidas de la fecha límite, es irrelevante. Esta extensión te da un extra de seis meses, hasta el 15 de octubre (de nuevo, salvo fines de semana o días festivos), para presentar tu declaración federal de impuestos.

como obtenga una extension de impuestos

Paso 1: Estimación de impuestos adeudados

Estima la cantidad de impuestos que tendrás que pagar para el año. Simplemente resta el total de impuestos retenidos de tu cheque de pago y los pagos de impuestos estimados a partir de la cantidad de impuestos que debes. Antes de calcular tu obligación fiscal, asegúrate de reducir tus ingresos por todas las exenciones y deducciones que anticipas reclamar.

A continuación, puedes calcular los impuestos que debes usando las tablas de impuestos en las instrucciones de tu declaración de impuestos. Si planeas usar un crédito fiscal, no te olvides de reducir el impuesto que debes por el crédito. Si todavía debes impuestos, es aconsejable incluir un pago cuando solicites la extensión. Si pagas demasiado poco, puedes deber interés y sanciones.

También puedes utilizar TurboTax para saber cuánto vas a deber o utiliza nuestra calculadora TaxCaster para obtener una estimación.

Paso 2: Descarga el Formulario 4868

Completar el Formulario 4868 te permite obtener la prórroga de seis meses de plazo para presentar tu declaración. Puedes acceder a una copia del formulario en la página web de TurboTax y llenarlo en cuestión de minutos. Si haces un pago de impuestos estimados con una tarjeta de crédito o débito el 15 de abril, tu extensión es concedida sin tener que presentar el Formulario 4868.

Paso 3: Completa el Formulario 4868

La solicitud de una prórroga automática requiere un mínimo de información. Todo lo que necesitas es incluir tu nombre, dirección y número de Seguro Social. Si no se hace un pago de impuesto estimado con tarjeta de crédito o débito, puedes incluir un cheque a nombre del Tesoro de EE.UU.

Paso 4: Envía el formulario

Envía por correo el formulario 4868 a la dirección adecuada del IRS de tu área geográfica indicada en las instrucciones. El paso más importante es asegurarse de que envíes el formulario en la fecha original de vencimiento de tu declaración de impuestos.
