If you’re one of those, at least file an extension, says Chicago-area accountant (CPA), Alan Russo. “File the extension form even if you don’t know what you owe,” says Russo. “Estimate it and by filing that one form, you eliminate the late filing penalty. “That means you save money despite your tardiness.”
