There is no extension showing up - it just let's me file again. HELP what do I do? It said "pending" the first time I went in a couple hours ago, but later it doesn't show anything. I don't know if I'm good or not. I owe a LOT of money so I had requested a big transfer. I don't know if I need to try another method of sending the funds or not. I don't want to get stuck with a big penalty .
If you file an extension, TurboTax will always pick up where you left off and allow you to continue to file (so you can file later). You can check your e-file status, including extension status, using this tool: <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tools/efile-status-lookup/">https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tools/ef...>.

If you pay directly and come back to file in TurboTax later, you can reference this article to add the extension payment you are making outside the product: <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1899271-where-do-i-enter-my-estimated-tax-payments">https://ttlc.i...>
