How To File 2013 Taxes Late If You Missed October 15 Deadline

Tax Season Officially Ended on October 15 but you can still use PriorTax 2013 Tax Software to File 2013 Taxes. Don't wait or late penalties will increase.

You can File 2013 Taxes Late with PriorTax.

If you planned on filing your 2013 taxes by the October 15, 2014 deadline but never got around to it, don’t panic.

You can no longer e-file a 2013 tax return, but you’ll still be able to  file 2013 taxes late with PriorTax. Thanks to the 2013 tax software, you won’t waste hours doing taxes.

File your late 2013 taxes sooner rather than later. The IRS late fees increase by the day.

The longer you wait to file your 2013 taxes, the more you’ll end up handing over to the IRS in late penalties.

You’ll Have To Paper File Your Late Tax Return

As of October 15, the IRS shut down the e-file system to prepare for the upcoming tax season. You missed your chance to electronically file and will need to mail your late taxes.

Luckily, you won’t need to prepare your tax return completely by yourself. PriorTax is one of the only 2013 tax software services available for late tax preparation.

Our software will do the work for you. All you’ll have to do is enter your tax information. Once your return is prepared by our tax team, you’ll just need to print and mail it to the IRS.

The Longer You Wait to File, The Higher the Late Penalties

If you’re expecting a refund from your 2013 taxes, you won’t face late penalties or interest. On the other hand, if you have tax due and missed the April 15 and October 15 deadline, you’ll face late penalties. IRS late penalties include the following;

  • Late-filing Penalty: 5% of the additional taxes owed amount for every month (or fraction) your return is late, with a maximum penalty of 25%

Keep in mind, if you file more than 60 days after the due date, then you’ll be fined at the very least, a minimum penalty of $135.

  • Late-payment Penalty: 0.5% (1/2 of 1%) of the additional tax owed amount for every month (or fraction) your tax remains unpaid, up to a maximum of 25%

For any month that you receive both a late-payment and late-filing penalty, then the 0.5% late-payment penalty is waived.

In other words, if you missed the October 15 deadline, at the very least file your tax return as soon as possible. The penalty for filing late can be up to 10 times higher than the late payment penalty. 

If You’re Expecting a Refund, You Have Until April 15, 2017 To Claim It

If you can’t find the time to file your 2013 taxes, and expecting a refund, you have until April 15, 2017 to file and claim your refund money.

After the three year statute of limitations deadline has passed, you’ll no longer be able to claim your 2013 refund. Why not claim the money now?

You Can Still File Your 2013 Taxes with PriorTax!

No need to panic over what 2013 tax forms you need to file your late taxes. No need to stress out over complicated IRS tax lingo. Instead, file your late taxes with ease.

Create an account on PriorTax and  finally get your 2013 taxes at of the way.
