IRS extensions for tax year 2022 must be filed on or before April 18, 2023 for domestic taxpayers.
It isn't possible to file a post-deadline extension.
Keep in mind: An extension doesn't give you extra time to pay your taxes, but it'll keep you from getting a late filing penalty. (You'll still owe interest if you pay after the deadline).
- Open your return in TurboTax Online
- To do this, sign in to TurboTax and select Pick up where you left off
- Select File an extension from the menu
- If you don't see File an extension, search for extend using the search function and select Jump to in the search results
- Follow the on-screen instructions to e-file your extension
Note: If you're paying additional taxes owed with direct debit, you'll need to provide your 2021 AGI for verification purposes (if you didn't file a 2021 return, enter 0 as your AGI).
If you don't have your AGI, or your extension gets rejected for the wrong AGI, here are two options:
- Recommended: Pay your taxes at IRS Direct Pay (this also automatically gives you an extension)
- Download and print Form 4868, fill it out, and get it postmarked before 11:59 PM on April 18. Payment and mailing instructions are on pages 3 and 4 of your printout
If you filed prior to the deadline, but were rejected, you'll likely have until April 23 to mail in your extension.
