Tax Day Is Here–Extension Options

Since April 15 fell on a Sunday this year, and April 16 was Emancipation Day (a holiday in DC), April 17 is the last day to file your IRS tax returns for 2006. If you’re falling way behind and simply can’t make the deadline–don’t despair. Click HERE to download IRS Form 4868, Application for Automatic Extension of Time. This gives you an extra 6 months (4 if you are out of the country) to file your Federal Return. NOTE However, you MUST pay ALL your taxes today, with the Form 4868, or you will be subject to interest and penalties. Normally filing a Form 4968 extends your filing date for State income taxes, but check with a tax professional.

If you need some Mental TAX RELIEF after the grim duties of filing taxes, we offer this nice photo taken by gunsmith Richard Franklin in Bedford County, Virginia. Maybe that will put things in perspective. Remember we don’t live to work and pay taxes, we work and pay taxes to be able to enjoy life, including the chance to spend a nice day in the country with our rifles. View Larger Photo.
