Filing taxes with my husband

If you don’t have all the information you need to file your return by today’s filing deadline, you can file Form 4868 with the IRS for an extension of time to file. Sending this form will grant you an extension to file until October 17, 2022. 

Note that filing an extension doesn’t give you additional time to pay any balance due on the return. If you don't pay the entire amount due with your extension, you may be subject to penalties and interest.

Please see the TurboTax Help article How do I file an IRS extension (Form 4868)? for guidance on filing your extension.

If this isn't an option for you, please reply.

If he agrees to have you file the numbers you crunched, he could send you a photo of his drivers license.  You need his state, number, date of issue and date of expiration from the front of the license.   Obviously its fraud if you use that info without his consent, but those are the things they use as 'signature'

It's not a problem if your husband agrees with the tax return information and you could send him a copy to allow him to review the information.  In the future it may be advisable to have a valid 'Power of Attorney' on hand so that you can handle any legal documents that require his signature. The IRS has Form 2848 Power of Attorney, available for situations like yours.

@stuff6737 

when you e-file your return is presumed to be signed.

That includes both persons on a joint return.
