Nothing complicated about a second extension. Complete form 2688. In the explanation area, write something like: we need additional time to gather the information necessary to file a complete an accurate return.

I've almost never had a second extension request denied, as long as it was filed on time. And they do take a close look at the postmark date, so don't miss it.

It will give you until October 15 to file your return. But that's it. No more extensions after that.
