How do I get credit for tax payments I made with my extension?
If you filed your extension through TurboTax, your tax payment should already be accounted for. Nevertheless, it's a great idea to review it for accuracy before you file your return.
- Open (continue) your return in TurboTax, if it's not already open.
- With your return open, search for estimated tax payments (use this exact phrase) and then click the "Jump to" link in the search results.
- Under the Payments with Extension topic, click the Start or Update button next to the payment you submitted with your type of federal, state, or local extension.
