The IRS reminds the estimated 19 million taxpayers who requested an extension to file their 2021 tax returns that they don’t have to wait until mid-October to file. If your client has all the necessary information to file an accurate return, they can file electronically at any time before the October deadline and avoid a last-minute rush to file.
