Can i efile an extension with turbotax

An IRS extension gives you until October 16 to file, but it doesn't give you until October to pay your taxes. Those are still due by midnight, April 18.

(Expecting a refund? You may not need an extension. Read more here.)

Below are 5 different ways to file your IRS extension (click or tap here for info about state extensions).

  1. Make a payment to the IRS and select Form 4868 as the payment type.
  2. Search for extend inside your TurboTax program, then click or tap the "Jump to" link.
  3. Sign in at TurboTax.com, then select Easy Extension from the MyTurboTax menu (mobile devices: tap the upper-left corner to access this menu).
  4. Sign in at the Easy Extension website to e-file your extension.
  5. Download and print Form 4868, fill it out, and mail it before midnight April 18. Payment and mailing instructions are on pages 3 and 4 of your printout.

How do you efile from TurboTax? I don't see an answer to the question. I see other options to extend, but no "Yes/No" answer or how to for efiling from within TT. FWIW, I can only find an option to paper file from within TT

This seems to be the norm for how Intuit answers questions. They never answer the question asked; just run on and on with non-answers.

What a horrible product. there is no easy way to file extension in turbotax. You have to print out paper form or do it through ttonline. Such an expensive piece of software that fails at this basic basic task

How do you e file extension from within TurboTax desktop software.  Why is this not allowed from there as I bought this software to efile?  Why do I have to go to online to do it ?
