This will assure you can e-file, get your refund faster, and will reduce or eliminate any tax penalties.
Certain circumstances may change this, such as owing an outstanding debt or unpaid child support.
If you e-filed an extension or did not file a return by April 18, 2022 or later, you can e-file your tax return by Oct.
Not sure if you should file? At any rate, I do have an approved extension, I am getting a considerable refund, however, I'm waiting on some 1099-C forms to arrive, and fear I won't have the information prior to October 15th, so trying to stay ahead of this.
