I seen that after i pay turbo tax i can pay my federal tax. But do i still have to pay my federal even though i never filed. I am super confused and no one seems to be able to answer if my federal due got extended sense i filed for an extension to file my taxes.

Taxes owed cannot be extended, only the filing of the tax return can be extended for 6 months.

Any taxes owed on the federal 2018 tax return has to be paid on or before April 15, 2019 to avoid a failure to pay penalty.

For federal taxes owed you are given several options on how to pay those taxes in the File section of the program in Step 2.  See this TurboTax support FAQ for paying federal taxes - <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1901676-how-can-i-pay-my-federal-taxes">https://ttlc.intuit.com/qu...>

Or you can request an installment plan for federal taxes owed using this IRS website - <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://www.irs.gov/payments/online-payment-agreement-application">https://www.irs.gov/payments/onli...>
If you do set up an installment plan then when you e-file the federal tax return choose the option to pay by check with a payment voucher and e-file your tax return.  Then do not mail a check.

Yes, you have to file the tax return on or before April 15 so you will avoid the failure to file penalty

You can use the IRS payment website and Direct Pay for 2018 federal taxes owed - <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://www.irs.gov/payments">https://www.irs.gov/payments</a>

If you cannot access the IRS payment website for Direct Pay (not an installment), then just select to pay the federal taxes owed with a check and the payment voucher, Form 1040-V.  Mail the payment with the voucher today in one envelope and the tax return in another envelope.
