How do I file an IRS extension (Form 4868) in the mobile app?

For most TurboTax Online customers, the deadline to file a federal extension was on April 18.

However, if you're stationed outside of the U.S. with an AE, AP, or AA military address, you have until June 18 to file your extension with the IRS. 

To file your extension, you'll need to leave the TurboTax app and sign in to a browser:

  1. Sign out of the app by tapping the TurboTax icon in the upper-left corner > App Settings > Sign Out.
  2. Open your browser (either on your device or a computer) and sign in at the Easy Extension website (use your app login).
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions to e-file your extension.
