Tax Extension

Hi.  I had a tax preparer do my taxes, but I was not happy with the results.  Since it was the last minute, they filed an extension and I made a payment to the IRS and California state.  I then did my taxes with TurboTax, but how do I submit and reference the extension and payments already sent.  Thanks.

For 2020 Federal Extension payments should be on schedule 3 line 9.  And go to 1040 line 31.

 

You can type estimates paid in the search box at the top of your return and click Find and it will give you a link to Jump To the screen where you enter Extension Payments.

 

To enter the amount you paid with an extension (including state extension)  go to

Federal Taxes (or Personal for desktop H&B version)

Deductions and Credits

Then scroll way down to Estimates and Other Taxes Paid

Other Income Taxes - Click the Start or Update button

 

Next page second section Payments with Extension

Either Visit All or Click Start or Update by the extension you paid

Thanks.  Here is a dumb question.  How do I get to the forms and lines you note?

I also gave the steps where to enter it.   Where do you get stuck?  You have to make entries using the interview questions.

Thanks.  I spent a little more time after I sent the last question and I think I am okay.  Appreciate the help.  By the way, what does Level 15 mean?  Thanks again for your help.
