Is there a penalty if I file late?

You would owe a penalty for late filing if your return shows a balance due and the return was filed after the extension period ends; you must compute a late filing penalty of 30% of the tax due with your return.

If you file your return within six months after the due date, and the tax owed is more than 10% of your total tax liability, you must compute an extension penalty on the balance of tax due. The extension penalty is applied at the rate of two % per month, or part of the month, from the due date through the date your return is filed.
