Extension must be filed by April 18 if you’re in the US or June 15 if you’re overseas.
- Once you have uploaded your questionnaire and all documentation, you MUST email us to let us know you are ready! We won’t know unless you tell us.
- If your file isn’t complete by March 20 (US filers) or May 20 (overseas filers), we will most likely need to put you on an extension and prepare the return over the summer.
- We do not file an extension for you unless you have been in touch with us prior to the deadline.
- FBAR extensions: Extensions are automatic with no request needed.
