Overview of 8809

Why I Need To File Form 8809?

If for some reason you're unable to file your W-2, 1099, or ACA Forms by their original due date, you can get an automatic 30-day extension of time to file by completing Form 8809. The form can be submitted on paper or online, however it must be filed by the original due date of your return(s) in order to qualify for the extension.
