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
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.
