PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Monday is Tax Day and that means you've got until midnight to file your tax returns that is unless you've requested an extension. 

An extension means you have until October 15. 

However, if you owe money, you must pay at least 90% of the money owed online or postmarked by April 15. Failure to pay could result in not just interest payments but a penalty of up to 25% of the taxes owed but a third charge for not filing an extension. 

Most people who qualify for refunds should expect to see them within 21 days. 

"Two out of every three taxpayers that file with us is owed a refund and people want their refunds quickly, as they should and we want to get people's money in their pocket," said Danny Werfel, IRS Commissioner told CBS News. "Our mission at the IRS is, not necessarily to make it fun, but to make it as seamless and as easy as possible and to give taxpayers options and to serve them wherever they are and what they need." 

Now, if you need to file an extension you can go to the IRS's website and file out the appropriate extension. 

You can find that here.

If you owe the IRS money, but can't pay by April 15 you can set up an installment plan.
