It seems like it was just six months ago that everyone was freaking out, filing their last-minute tax returns, while you calmly filed an extension and said “I’ll deal with it in October.” Well, now the clock is ticking and folks who got extensions back in April now have until next Monday, Oct. 15, to file their actual returns.

When you file an extension, you are supposed to pay an estimate on any income taxes you owe, so hopefully this is merely a matter of doing all the paperwork and you won’t be hit over the head with having to make a mammoth payment.
