When To File Form 4868
File Form 4868 by April 15, 2024 (April 17, 2024, if you live in Maine or Massachusetts). Fiscal year taxpayers file Form 4868 by the original due date of the fiscal year return.

Taxpayers who are out of the country. If, on the regular due date of your return, you’re out of the country (as defined below) and a U.S. citizen or resident, you’re allowed 2 extra months to file your return and pay any amount due without requesting an extension. Interest will still be charged, however, on payments made after the regular due date, without regard to the extension. If you’re out of the country and file a calendar year income tax return, you can pay the tax and file your return or this form by June 17, 2024. File this form and be sure to check the box on line 8 if you need an additional 4 months to file your return.

If you’re out of the country and a U.S. citizen or resident, you may qualify for special tax treatment if you meet the bona fide residence or physical presence test. If you don’t expect to meet either of those tests by the due date of your return, request an extension to a date after you expect to meet the tests by filing Form 2350, Application for Extension of Time To File U.S. Income Tax Return.

You’re out of the country if:
* You live outside the United States and Puerto Rico and your main place of work is outside the United States and Puerto Rico, or
* You’re in military or naval service on duty outside the United States and Puerto Rico.

If you qualify as being out of the country, you’ll still be eligible for the extension even if you’re physically present in the United States or Puerto Rico on the regular due date of the return.

For more information on extensions for taxpayers out of the country, see Pub. 54, Tax Guide for U.S. Citizens and Resident Aliens Abroad.
