If you need an extension of time to file your Federal income tax, it's really easy to do. Here's how:
First, do not pay anybody to file it for you. You can do it yourself in minutes, for free.
Second, don't be taken in by some company claiming that they have an 'in' with the IRS that will guarantee your request for an extension is approved. All requests for extension of time to file are automatically approved.
To file an extension request by mail, go to the IRS website, and download Form 4868. Fill it out, and mail it in.
To e-file an extension request, got to the e-file page on the IRS website. Click on 'Individual Taxpayers', and read on.
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
