This extension should be requested as soon as you know it will be necessary and not at the last minute before the original deadline.

If you need an extension of time to file more than one of the forms listed above, you can use a single Form 8809. The form must be filed by the earliest due date of the combined forms. The IRS will not grant extension requests filed after the filing due date of the information return.
Form 8809 extensions are for filing with the IRS only. The extensions will not apply to the recipient copy deadline.
Please note that only the first filing extension request may be submitted electronically. If you require a second extension, the request must be filed by paper. The IRS announced a new mailing address for Form 8809 requests for extension of time to file, and also that faxes would no longer be accepted.
