I am married filing 1040 jointly and want to request an extension. Do we need to file for the extension separately? 66 views | Last modified 3/6/2020 8:36:55 AM EST
No. If you are married filing jointly, you file one extension form 4868, just like the individual tax return. However, if you are married, and your spouse is filing a separate extension be sure to include the total tax paid on both extension on the joint 1040 Form.
