For those of you wondering, “What are estimated tax payments?”

Maybe you were not one of the lucky few who had a refund last tax season but owed at the end of the year. This could be due to earnings outside of traditional withheld sources from W-2’s, like self-employment or 1099 contractual sources. Perhaps your withholdings did not reflect accurately upon your complete household scenario.

Quarterly tax payments are the estimated tax earnings for which you would be responsible, broken up into 4 parts, paid quarterly throughout the year. This should reduce the amount owed next Tax Season.
For additional forms not discussed, please visit the IRS website.

Again, to avoid penalties, postmark your mailed payment and ship via the appropriate deadline date outlined above. If paying electronically online, you have until 8pm on the deadline date to pay via the IRS Direct web service.
