Puerto Rico (5/15)

Taxpayers who are serving in a combat zone or in a contingency operation in support of the Armed Forces are entitled to automatically extend their tax filing AND tax payment deadlines. When taxpayers are serving in a qualified combat zone, the deadline for filing and payment is increased by 180 days from the last day they are in a qualified combat zone OR the last day of continuous hospitalization related to injury from military service.

Nobody enjoys doing his or her taxes. Most Americans live a busy lifestyle that is made more chaotic, stressful, and confusing come tax season. Finding enough time to sit down for multiple hours and sift through all the forms, receipts, and tax changes for that year isn’t fun for anyone. Many people don’t know they are eligible to get a tax extension that grants them six extra months to file their taxes.
The IRS uses Taxpayer Identification Numbers (TINs) in the administration of U.S. tax laws. All TINs are issued by the IRS except for Social Security Numbers (SSNs), which are issued by the Social Security Administration (SSA) instead. You must provide your TIN on all tax returns, schedules, statements, and other tax-related documents.
