If you're filing online you need to log in to your online account, it will bring you to the page that says Welcome back! Towards the bottom of that page under tax Filing Resources it will have a link to file an extension. Follow that link and the steps it prompts. Thank you for joining the Community, have a nice day!

Okay, let's try it this way, (without signing in) at www.hrblock.com. Hover over the File Online tab then on the right hand side you will see the category Other Resources and under it is the File an Extension link. That should get you where you need to go Thank you for joining the Community, have a nice day!

I'm in the same boat. I've done my taxes with HR Block since 2010, and i dont see "file an extension" on my screen when i login.
Here's my menu of options.

You can't file an extension if you've already filed your taxes. All taxpayers are generally required to file their 2013 tax return and pay the full amount of tax due by April 15, 2014 to avoid penalties and interest. The IRS will provide extra time to file your federal tax return (October 15, 2014), but taxes owed must still be paid by the deadline. You can file online or let one of our experienced tax professionals file an extension for you. If you haven't already filed your taxes, follow this link http://www.hrblock.com/lp/extension.html it will help you file an extension. This is directly off our website.

Hi there, like the others, I also don't see the file extension via ANY of the method you stated above.
Using the "Hover" method, it only took me to my "welcome" page and not the 4868 page.
This is very frustrating. There is no way to access the 4868 form at all.

Per IRS instructions, Form 4868 Extension of Time to File must be filed by April 15th. Since that date is past, the ability to file an extension is no longer available. Thank you for joining the Community, have a nice day!

Hi, I am attempting to e-file (free file) form 4868, before the deadline.
The free-file page http://www.hrblock.com/taxes/partner/index.jsp?otpPartnerId=5358 has a link saying "H&R Block Free Supported Forms" and the list does not inlcude 4868. However, inside the tax interview application, the list of available forms DOES include 4868. How can I access the form and e-file through Block? I am living abroad and I need to be able to file this extension. Please help. Thanks!
