"We help corporations to achieve and implement IT solutions in a strategic way"
Form 8868 is used by exempt organizations to request an automatic 3-month
extension of time (6 months for a corporation required to file Form 990-T)
to file its return and also to apply for an additional (not automatic) 3-month extension if the original 3-month
extension was not enough time. You cannot apply for both the automatic 3-month
extension and the additional (not automatic) 3-month
extension at the same time. Also, the trustee of a trust required to file Form
1041-A or Form 5227 must use
Form 8868 to request an extension of time to file those returns.
Generally file Form 8868 by the due date of the return for which you are
requesting an extension, or in the case of an additional 3-month extension, by the extended due date of the return. When requesting an additional
extension of time to file, file
Form 8868 early so that if your request is denied you can still file your return on time.
