We filed an extension for CA taxes in April. (We live in PA.) We sent a payment with our extension, but now cannot find where to enter that payment on our CA state tax form. We paid money and now our final return shares we owe nothing. We'd like a refund.
You actually enter any estimated tax payments, including payments made with extension, into your federal tax return. Those payments are then transferred into your state return(s). The TurboTax FAQ info below will instruct you on entering those payments into your federal tax return.
When you are done updating your federal return, you need to transfer the new federal information by going back through the state tab and the state return. Nothing will change until you transfer the fed info to the state again.
My old note says......
Since you've made multiple state extension payments, you will need to enter the total amount of state extension payments you've made. The program will enter this total on your federal return but you will need to go to each state return and enter the extension payment in the state interview for it to be accurately reported on yout state return.
For Online versions:
Although tedious and buried in TurboTax online, you can enter in payments made with extensions for multiple states. You have to go into the interview for each state and get to the section regarding filing an extension. Once there, you will need to say you are going to file an extension and then it will eventually trigger a screen asking for the payment amount you will make with the extension. Once the amount is entered it will populate on the corresponding form and you should see the TurboTax refund meter adjust accordingly.
