If you used the TurboTax Easy Extension to electronically file the extension request, Form 4868, and make the tax payment with the request, the payment should already entered on your tax return. Provided you used the same user ID for the 2018 online tax return as was used to use Easy Extension. You can check to see if the amount is on your tax return by clicking on Tax Tools on the left side of the screen. Then click on Tools. Click on View Tax Summary. Then click on Preview my 1040.


The federal extension payment will be shown on Form 1040 Line 17 and on Schedule 5 Line 71

 

To enter, change or delete a payment made with an extension request (Federal, State, Local) -

  • Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)
  • Click on Deductions and Credits
  • Click on I'll choose what I work on (if shown)
  • Scroll down to Estimates and Other Taxes Paid
  • On Other Income Taxes, click on the start or update button

On the next screen select the type of extension payment made and click on the start or update button

 

Or enter federal extension payment in the Search box located in the upper right of the program screen. Click on Jump to federal extension payment

When did you mail a check?  Today is only Sept. 8, 2019.

 

You can type estimates paid in the search box at the top of your return and click Find and it will give you a link to Jump To the screen where you enter Extension Payments.

 

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

Federal Taxes (or Personal for H&B/Self Employed version)

Deductions and Credits

Choose Jump to Full List -or  I'll choose what I work on

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
