The Internal Revenue Service is reminding taxpayers who filed for an extension to double check their returns before the deadline for October 17.

According to the IRS, fewer than a third of the 13 million taxpayers who requested an automatic six-month extension have yet to file. October is the last day for most people to file, with the exception of members of the military and other serving in combat zones who have 180 days to filed after they leave a combat zone.

In addition, taxpayers in several disaster area localities who already had valid extensions now have more time to file. Currently, taxpayers in parts of Florida, Louisiana and West Virginia qualify for this relief. For details, see the disaster relief page on
