Another way to request such extension is to make a payment via the IRS Direct Pay system.
If you know that you have to pay with the extension request - the easiest way is to make payment AND request an extension at the same time.
Pay all or part of your estimated income tax due and indicate that the payment is for an extension using IRS Direct Pay. You'll receive a confirmation number for your records.
