We have been receiving a rush of calls from clients worried about the 18th of April deadline. What is the 18th of April deadline?
The 18th of April deadline is the first individual US tax return deadline of the year.
However, an automatic extension is granted for US taxpayers that reside outside the US on the 18th of April.
Since the Australian/New Zealand financial year is different from the US calendar year, we may have to wait for the Australian/New Zealand income tax returns and financials to prepare the US tax return.
Therefore, we can help you with the extension of time to file your US tax return to avoid a late filing penalty.
Extension of time to file does not extend the date to pay any tax due. The tax due deadline is the 18th of April.
But what if you don’t know how much tax you’ll owe?
We can calculate an estimate to pay by the 18th of April to avoid interest and late payment penalties.
Here at US Global Tax, we can assist with all US filing obligations, including estimated tax.
We are based locally, and you can visit us at the Sydney/Auckland office.
