Identify whether you are a single-member LLC or a multimember LLC.
Identify whether you qualify for the automatic six-month extension. You must not be under a court order to file, and need to file your own tax to qualify.
File the Form 4868 after downloading it from the IRS website by the due date for filing your calendar year return or fiscal year return. This can be done in three ways. You can do it electronically by a computer, by paying part of your tax due with a credit card through an outside service provider listed on the form, or by mail. However, the service providers are likely to charge a fee based on the amount of tax payment. You can employ a tax software package with your personal computer to file the form electronically. If you are a single-member LLC, your objective is accomplished in this step. If you are a multimember LLC, you will need one more step.
If you are a multimember LLC, file Form 7004 for an automatic extension of six months. You need to submit only one Form 7004. You can e-file Form 7004 through the Modernized e-File (MeF) platform, or you can send it by mail to a specific address depending on your location and the file you want to form to represent (see Reference section).
