At IRSExtension.com we understand that the privacy of your personal information is very important. We have taken great lengths to ensure that any information you give us is safe.
We DON'T store sensitive tax information. The only customer information stored by this website is basic contact information. Sensitive information required for a tax extension (such as SSN, income, and IRS PIN) is not stored, rather it is transmitted directly to the IRS. This sometimes creates a minor inconvenience when returning to the site to correct an extension, but is done for the safety and privacy of all users.
Your tax information is NEVER shared with ANYONE, but the IRS. We will never share any of our user's tax information with anyone else and as outlined above we do not store any sensitive data about our customers.
This website is encrypted with SSL. Any information you submit on this website is encrypted with 256-bit encryption.
