How do I get credit for tax payments I made with my extension?

If you filed your extension through TurboTax, your tax payment should already be accounted for. Nevertheless, it's a great idea to review it for accuracy before you file your return.

  1. Open your return in TurboTax, if it's not already open.
    (To do this, sign in to TurboTax and click the Take me to my return button.)
  2. Search for "estimated tax payments" (use this exact phrase) and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.
  3. In the Payments with Extension section, click the Start or Update button next to the payment you submitted with your type of federal, state, or local extension. Make sure the amount shown is correct.
Intuit TurboTax - Finish filing and get your maximum refund, guaranteed.
