Can we e-file partnership return 1065 after we have filed for an extension with form 7004?

We e-filed for extension of time on filing 1065 last month with form 7004, via ExpressExtension, and at the time got an email confirmation that the extension has been accepted by the IRS for the Tax Year 2018. Now we are ready to submit our 1065 with TurboTax Business.

I got the impression that we have to attach a copy of the filed form 7004 with our return. Is this correct and do we really need to attach it? Since there is no way to attach documents with TurboTax Business, can we still e-file our partnership return?

When I go to forms mode, I see that there is a form 7004 and I can open it, and activate it. It appears as if this will create the form and send it out with the return. Is this the correct thing to do in our case?

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
