If you’re unable to get everything in order before midnight tonight, the Internal Revenue Service recommends filing for an extension.

Using this method will prevent you from paying late penalties, but it won’t provide more time to pay money that is owed.

According to the IRS, $2,833 is the average refund so far this year.
