The time to procrastinate is up.

Although tomorrow is technically the deadline to file and pay taxes, those who are cutting it close still have a little leeway. To avoid late penalties, taxpayers can file a six-month filing extension, which must be postmarked April 15.

No reason is needed for requesting an extension, or a Form 4868, which can be downloaded from the IRS Web site and mailed in or completed online.

However, taxpayers do need to remember the extension gives them extra time to file - not extra time to pay.
