-Needed more time in May to compile some tax numbers.
-Fed Return had refund coming
-GA State Return showed taxes owed to the state
-I extended my Fed Return by May filing date, and received approval from TurboTax to extend my filing, whereby I then printed a Form 4868 with a perforated stub at the bottom. Just held onto it.
-Now that I am ready to file both Fed & State, I am going into TurboTax and it is giving me messages that I need to file by May 17 (like I never filed an extension). Weird.
Question: How do I print confirmation that my return extension was approved to send in with my State return + paper check payment (for taxes owed)?
Thanks in advance for the help!!
It's almost Oct 15 and it is time to e-File before e-File closes down.
Proceed as normal.
There is nothing special you have to do, but you must e-File Federal if you want TurboTax to e-File your state return.
Thank you so much!
So the Fed will know automatically that I've been approved for extension?
And, after efiling the Fed return today, will I need to include a extension approval form 4858 with my state efiled return, or will they (the State) just know that I was approved for extension in May and not charge me a late / failure to file penalty?
Thank you Thank you Thank you in advance for your help!
Some states (all ??) will give an automatic extension if you got a Federal extension.
Se if your state form has a check box for this situation.
In any case, there's nothing you can do about it at this point (besides check the box).
