How to Include Extension form and New Jersey e-file

I filed for  Federal extension for 2020 using an IRS downloadable form 4868 and mailed it with a $200 payment.  I entered this payment in Turbo Tax in Other payments and Credits an it appears on Schedule 3 line 9, but I do not see form 4868.   New Jersey requires a copy of 4868 with the return.  How do I include form 4868 with my NJ state e-file ?

If you have a Federal extension, your NJ extension is automatic also.

You don't have to include any Form with your e-Filing.

Nor can you do that.

 

 

PS anybody can get form 4868 right now from IRS website and put their name on it, so including it now  is meaningless.

When e-Filing,

 

"fill in the oval (regarding extension) on the front of your NJ-1040."

 

Presumably, TurboTax will handle this for you since it knows you requested a federal extension.

I did fill in the oval on the NJ return.  I hope you are right about TT providing the info, but I have my doubts.  Looking at the NJ tax web site they require a Fed confirmation number for online filing, a copy of the Fed  paper extension form 4868 that was filed May 17, 2021  or the NJ -630 extension mailed on May 17, 2021.   https://www.state.nj.us/treasury/taxation/questions/extension.shtml

it says,

if filed by paper,

that means if you filed the 4868 on paper, and, you are filing your NJ return on paper.

 

see IRS website to file a request for extension online, no paper required.

If you print a paper copy of NJ for your records,

you should see, on Page 1, a mark next to the line "Federal extension filed."

 

Always print a copy of your completed tax return(s) for your records, and review it carefully before e-Filing.
You will need it if you are audited by the IRS, or to amend if a TurboTax update changes your return or for any other reason,

AND, to find your AGI next year.
