Your extension gives you until October 15, 2015 to file your 2014 federal tax return.

When you're ready to file, simply open your return in TurboTax, finish your return, and file it as you would normally do.

You don't need to do anything special unless you made payments with your extension. In that case, follow these instructions to get credit for the payment:

1.     In TurboTax, search for the exact phrase estimated tax payments (if necessary, copy/paste from here).

2.     In the search results, click Jump to estimated tax payments.

3.     On the next screen, Estimates and Other Income Taxes Paid, click Start next to the Payment with 2014 federal extension topic.

4.     Follow the simple on-screen instructions to enter your federal tax payment.

5.     (Optional) When you get back to the Estimates and Other Income Taxes Paid screen, you can also enter any state or local payments you made with your extension.

6.     When done, click Done with Tax Payments.

Once you've done that, finish your return and file it before the October 15 extension deadline.




To print the Form 4868 extension request you have to be working from within the 2015 online account, not just signed onto the account.  

After you file:

When you sign onto your 2015 online account and are on the screen that states Welcome Home, click on Taxes at the top of the online program screen.  Then when you are on the 2015 Timeline, under Some things you can do:  click on Add a state (you will not actually be adding a state).  This will take you into the 2015 online tax return.

Before you file:

Or when you sign onto your 2015 online account and are on the 2015 Timeline screen, click on the large Orange Continue My Return button to take you into the 2015 online tax return.

You have to pay the TurboTax account fees before you can print any of the forms, schedules and worksheets that are included in the tax return.

To pay the TurboTax online account fees by credit card, without completing the 2015 return at this time, click on My Account at the top of the online program screen.  Then click on Print Center.  Then click on Print, save or preview this year's return.  On the next page, to pay by credit card, click Continue.  On the next screen it will ask if you want Audit Defense, if you do not want this option just click on the Continue button.  The next screen will ask for all your credit card information so you can pay for the account.

To print the form:

If you have already paid the TurboTax account fees and are working within the 2015 tax return, click on My Account at the top of the online program screen.  Then click on Print Center.  Then click on Print, save or preview this year's return.  On the TurboTax Print Center window, select from the dropdown Forms filed with the government plus all worksheets.  Choose the option on how you want to print or save.

Once the PDF has been downloaded to your computer, you can view or print the return with any PDF compatible viewer, such as Adobe Reader.
