11364: 1040 - Extension Letter After Acceptance of 4868

Deadlines + Extensions

The software is printing out the 1040 result letter rather than the 4868 letter. How can I get the extension letter?


When an extension has been e-filed and accepted through Drake Tax, that information is updated on the ESUM screen with an ACK date and ACK code of A. At that point, the software will generate the Form 1040 result letter in preparation for the actual return to be completed. If you need to print the extension letter after the return was already e-filed and accepted, you can restore the Selected for EF archive in view mode and print the letter that shows in view. See Related Links below for details.  

Note: Be sure to archive the current version of the return before restoring the 4868 archive.
