Is there a way to 'lock' extensions after they have been prepared & paid.
When prepared the balances due are generated using data in the return at that moment.
After the due date - and data changes the extensions change to the current return - so except for manually going to the extension input prior to changing data - is there a way to lock the extension to the amount prior at the moment it was prepared?
For most, I just print out the tax summary to keep as reference.
For complicated returns, I'll copy it & name it ###Extension.
This can be a problem if you use REP, but in theory you aren't charged twice unless the SSN/FEIN is changed (even tho you do get the message that you'll be charged again).
