Use Form 8868 to request an automatic 6-month extension of time to file Form 990, 990-EZ, or 990-PF and also to apply for an additional (not automatic) 3-month extension if needed. Do not apply for both the automatic 6-month extension and the additional 3-month extension at the same time. An organization will only be allowed an extension of 6 months for a return for a tax year. Note that Form 8868 cannot be filed to extend the due date of a Form 990-N. Extending the time for filing a return does not extend the time for paying tax. To avoid interest and penalties, send the full balance due as soon as possible with Form 8868.
