No signature if required for filing an extension. The Form 4868 is the extension request form. You can view the form at the following link.

https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4868.pdf

There is the possibility that your accountant did not file the extension request and if you cannot prove that an extension has been filed, then the IRS will have the upper hand here.

Do the IRS make mistakes sometimes?
Tax Professional: Tax.appeal.168, Tax Accountant replied 6 months ago

The IRS DOES make mistakes, however, without proof of filing the extension, it is your word against the IRS.

Reviewing old emails i saw that the accountant send me the form for nyc and told me that he can do the extensions but i need to sign the nyc form wich i did
I guess either he forgot to file tje extension or the irs made a mistake

At this point, again, it is the paper trail that counts. If you can't prove that an extension has been filed, and the IRS is saying that it has not been filed, they are going to stick with the extension not being filed.
