You think we're being harsh, but really, we're just stating the facts -- according to TurboTax

If all you tax deviants still have no plans to file today, fine, but don't forget to file an extension. Keep in mind however that an extension to file ain't the same thing as an extension to pay, that includes all you 1099ers, the contracted freelancers who are probably out enjoying the sun right now.
So ballpark the amount you owe, submit your extension request, and double-check it later. Otherwise, be prepared to pay your bail, which is probably a lot more money than you owe Uncle Sam.
