I filed an extension and made a payment. How do I get credit for it?

SOLVEDby TurboTax365Updated January 13, 2022

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.

  1. Open or continue your return in TurboTax, if it's not already open
  2. Search for estimated tax payments (use this exact phrase) and then click the Jump to link in the search results
  3. In the Payments with Extension section, select Start or Update next to the payment you submitted with your type of federal, state, or local extension. Make sure the amount shown is correct
