How to Create And Electronically File Form 4868
To transmit the Federal Extension
- Click Queue in the menu bar.
- The Program will show the "Return Errors and Rejects" window if there are errors on the tax return. Because the tax return is not being sent at this time and only the extension is being sent, most errors (even fatal) can be ignored. To transmit the 4868, despite errors on the 1040 and other related forms, click Next.
- On the "Queue Return For Transmission" window select only the Queue Federal Extension.
- Click Queue to queue the extension for transmission.
- Transmit to Central Site/Main Office like normal.
