where to enter tax paid

If you used the TurboTax Easy Extension to electronically file the extension request, Form 4868, and make the tax payment with the request, the payment should already entered on your tax return. Provided you used the same user ID for the 2021 online tax return as was used for the Easy Extension. You can check to see if the amount is on your tax return by clicking on Tax Tools on the left side of the screen. Then click on Tools. Click on View Tax Summary. Then click on Preview my 1040.


The federal extension payment will be shown on Schedule 3 Line 10. The amount from Schedule 3 Part II Line 15 flows to Form 1040 Line 31

 

To enter, change or delete a payment made with an extension request (Federal, State, Local) -

  • Click on Federal Taxes (Personal using Home and Business)
  • Click on Deductions and Credits
  • Click on I'll choose what I work on (if shown)
  • Scroll down to Estimates and Other Taxes Paid
  • On Income Taxes Paid, click on the start or update button

On the next screen select the type of extension payment made and click on the start or update button

 

Or enter federal extension payment in the Search box located in the upper right of the program screen. Click on Jump to federal extension payment

DoninGA, Thank you for the detailed instruction. I have finished entering the tax paid figure.

 

Now, what about state tax? I didn't think of that when first posting the question.

If you are referring to an extension payment to a state, that payment is entered in the same section of the program as the federal extension payment.

See screenshot.  The state extension payment selection is directly below the federal extension payment selection -
