Due Date on Instruction Letter

Tax return is on extension. Extension was not done through TurboTax, as it was prepared by hand. Filing instructions show that returns must be postmarked by April 18, 2022. How can the due date be changed to October 17?

Federal taxes owed on a 2021 tax return were due and payable on April 18, 2022.  The extension request is only for filing the tax return.

Use the April 18, 2022 date on for the payment date for taxes owed.

Are you mailing your return?  You can still efile it until Oct 15 or 17.   Don't worry about the instruction sheet.  Did you make a payment with the extension?   Did you enter it?

 

To enter the amount you paid with an extension (including state extension)  go to

Federal Taxes (or Personal for desktop H&B version)

Deductions and Credits

Then scroll way down to Estimates and Other Taxes Paid

Other Income Taxes - Click the Start or Update button

 

Next page second section Payments with Extension

Either Visit All or Click Start or Update by the extension you paid

All taxes were paid by the original due date. Extensions were timely filed. 
I know when the tax returns must be filed. 
I’m only asking how to have the extended due date appear on the instruction letter.

IGNORE the instruction sheet and mail or efile the return by 10/17/22.

Why are you worried about the instruction sheet?  Throw it away or shred it.  Turbo Tax probably didn't update the date for extended returns.   It's only for your own info.  And you did pay the tax due by the original due date.

I know I don’t need it. 

But, for example, suppose you were preparing your adult child’s return who lives out of town. Not the case but …..just surprised.

Ok ...  if you did not file the extension with the same TT account the program doesn't know when or if you filed the extension and there is no way to tell the program that you did.   If you are sending this to another person then either tell them to ignore the date or print it out and make the correction yourself manually.  Since this info is for your use only  it really doesn't matter what is says.
