If you haven't filed your 2021 income tax return you may be scrambling--because the deadline is today, April 18th.

Since April 15th fell on a weekend...The deadline was pushed to Monday.

For most people, you must pay any remaining 2021 income tax you still owe by the April 18 filing deadline -- even if you seek an extension to file.

If you don't pay on time, you will have to pay more than you owe, because you'll be hit with penalties and interest. If you really can't afford to pay on time, and have a good reason -- make your case by attaching a statement to your return.
