I don't have the money to pay by the due date, what do I do?

By law all tax is due on this date except for certain members of the military who are serving in a combat zone. Whatever amount you pay by the required due date will reduce the amount of interest and late-payment penalty you receive on your billing notice. Even if you are unable to pay the tax, you must file your returns by the due date (or the extended due date).
