How to file 4868?:

WASHINGTON — With the tax deadline arriving tonight, the Internal Revenue Service announced taxpayers set a record this weekend for e-filed tax returns, topping 100 million for the first time.

The IRS saw a late surge of e-filed returns over the weekend. By early Monday morning, the IRS had received nearly 101 million e-filed returns for the 2011 tax season, representing an 8.8 percent increase from last year. In addition, this weekend's e-file by taxpayers pushed the number above the number filed for all of calendar year 2010, when 98.7 million tax returns were e-filed.

The IRS is also approaching another milestone of one billion tax returns filed electronically since the e-file program went national in 1990.

If you still miss April 18th Deadline there is always a way to file extension by filing form 4868.

There are three ways to request an automatic extension of time to file a U.S. individual income tax return.

1. You can file Form 4868 electronically by accessing IRS e-file using your home computer or by using a tax professional who uses e-file.

2. You can pay all or part of your estimate of income tax due using a credit or debit card.

3. You can file a paper Form 4868.
