My income isn't taxable. However my mortgage company said they have to see a copy of the extension form, not just Turbo Taxes statement They have to see the actual 4648.

I have followed multiple procedures posted on line t get a copy of my extension. The site keeps bringing me around in circles and I can't seem to print it. All they want me to do is pay $79.99 to file when I don't have to file. The IRS said you have to supply to me. So how do I get a copy of the actual form. What happened to free filing

You cannot print your tax return or the extension until the TurboTax account fees are paid.  Your message shows that you are using the TurboTax Live Basic edition which includes Live CPA support.  It is NOT the Free edition.
Clear your tax return and start over with the Free edition.  Complete the tax return using the Free Edition and register the Free Edition.  Then you can print your tax return to include the Form 4868 Extension request.

If you have not paid for the online edition you are using, have not filed your tax return or registered the Free edition, then you can clear your return and start over with a lower priced edition.  Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the program screen while working on the 2018 online tax return.  Click on Clear & Start Over.

Ok ... I am confused ... if you do not need to file since you have no taxable income then WHY did you file a useless extension ?   And why would a mortgage company want it ?  Something is very wrong here.

@Critter#2  Based on OP's screen name, I suspect income is LT Capital Gains taxed at 0%.  But lender still needs proof of income.

If they had stock sales they most certainly need to file a return EVEN if they owe nothing. Now the original question is making more sense.

The extension form thru TT would look like this one from the IRS and it would not say it was filed anyway ... you can fill it in and print it and give it to those fools.  https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4868.pdf

What you really want is the filing history showing an extension was filed and accepted ... of course it will not say what was on the form only that one was filed.   If you really want proof it was filed you should get an account transcript from the IRS.    https://www.irs.gov/individuals/tax-return-transcript-types-and-ways-to-order-them


Your return's electronic filing status history records all e-filing activity related to the return, including the Electronic Postmark. You can print it out if needed.
