Form 4868 using TurboTax Easy Extension - Line 6

Today, I submitted a Federal Personal Extension, Form 4868, using TurboTax Easy Extension.   After submission I was given an opportunity to print the submitted form.   I noticed Line 6 was auto filled incorrectly.  My Line 5 amount was $6000 more than the Line 4 amount.  When Line 5 amount is more than Line 4 then Line 6 should be filled with -0-, as per the 4868 instructions.   But the TurboTax Easy Extension filled it with $6000 instead of -0-.    Today is the last day for extension.  I may not get the results of the acceptance of electronic filing for 48 hours. Should I submit a paper version with a -0- in Line 6?

Form 4868 using TurboTax Easy Extension - Line 6

There is no need to worry about line 6 on your extension form. The important part is that you filed an extension on time and it was accepted. 

 

The figures on the form are for your convenience in figuring if you should make a payment. The only figure from Form 4868 that ends up on your tax return is the amount paid on line 7.
