And it&#39;s like, do you seriously think the IRS is going to answer their phone at 7 on a Sunday?&quot;</p></blockquote><p>Becky will be glad when tax day ends at midnight tonight.</p><p>She may, or may not know, that if you need to file an extension, <a href="http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4868.pdf">form 4868</a> is the paperwork you seek.
