Final Due Date for 2018 Individual Income Tax Returns without Form 2350
Individual income tax returns with valid extensions to December 16 must be filed by this date:
- Form 1040 extended with Form 4868 (or electronic extension payment) and granted additional 2-month discretionary extension;
- Form 1040NR originally due on April 15, extended with Form 4868, and granted additional 2-month discretionary extension; and
- Form 1040NR originally due on June 17 and extended with Form 4868.
Returns e-filed or mailed and post-marked by USPS or designated Private Delivery Services (PDS) on or before this date are deemed to have been filed on a timely basis.
Taxpayers who expect to qualify for the foreign earned income exclusion and/or the foreign housing exclusion or deduction by meeting either the bona fide residence test or the physical presence test but not until after the tax return is due may submit a Form 2350. Generally, if you are granted an extension for Form 2350, it will be to 30 days beyond the date on which you can reasonably expect to qualify under either the bona fide residence test or the physical presence test. However, if you have moving expenses that are for services performed in 2 years, you may be granted an extension to 90 days beyond the close of the year following the year of first arrival in the foreign country.
