SOLVEDby IntuitProConnect Tax104Updated October 18, 2021

This article will help you e-file an extension and view or print an extension form for your client. Review below to get started.

ProConnect Tax supports e-filing extensions for most tax types including:

  • Individual (1040)
  • Partnership (1065)
  • Corporate (1120)
  • S-corporation (1120S)
  • Fiduciary (1041)
  • Exempt (990)

To e-file an extension:

  1. Open a return.
  2. Select the Profile tab.
  3. Select the e-file box for both the respective Return and Extension boxes (federal and state, if applicable).
  4. Go to the File Return tab.
  5. Select E-file Extension from the left menu.
  6. Clear any extension critical diagnostics.
  7. Select e-file Now.
  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. On the left-side menu, select Payments, Penalties & Extensions.
  3. Select Extensions (4868/2350).
  4. Enter a 1 in 1=automatic extension, 2=blank (MANDATORY).
  5. Go to the Check Return tab and verify the information printing on Form 4868.

We strongly recommend saving a copy of the 4868 when the extension is filed to preserve any amount due or amounts paid with the extension.

To generate an extension in a 1065 return (Partnership):

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. Go to the General section to expand.
  3. Select Automatic Extension (7004).
  4. Enter a 1 in the field, Print extension: 1=1065, 2=8804, 3=both.

To generate an extension in an 1120 return (Corporation):

  1. Go to the Input Return tab
  2. Go to the Payments, Penalties & Extensions section and expand that.
  3. Select Extension (7004).
  4. Make an entry in the field, 1=automatic extension, 2=blank (MANDATORY)

To generate an extension in an 1120S return (S Corporation):

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. Go to the Payments, Penalties & Extensions section and expand that.
  3. Select Extension of Time to File (7004).
  4. Make an entry in the field, 1=automatic extension, 2=blank (MANDATORY).

To generate an extension in a 990 return (Exempt organization):

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. Go to the Payments, Penalties & Extensions section and expand that.
  3. Select Extension.
  4. Make an entry in the field, 1=automatic extension, 2=blank (MANDATORY).

To access the extension for a state attached to a business return:

  • Once you have added the state in the Profile section, state extension data will appear under the same extension section as the 7004 and can be edited here.

Foreign filers need to make sure they have a non-US address entered under Client Info to e-file an extension after the due date for domestic filers (typically April 15th).
