If I need to file an extension, how would I know how much I will need to pay by April 18th if I'm unable to complete my taxes?

If you file an extension you should make sure you pay at least the amount of taxes that you will owe.  You will need to use a tax program and enter your best estimates available to you at the time. It is best to over pay by a bit so that when you officially file you will get money back. The house always wins.

Yes, make a payment as a best guess. You can estimate with TaxCaster tax calculator.
