Quarterly Estimated Payments Due Dates – Get It Back

Contents

If you’re self-employed or don’t have taxes withheld from other sources of taxable income, it’s up to you to periodically pay the IRS by making estimated tax payments.

Our tax system operates on a “pay-as-you-go” basis, which means the IRS wants its cut of your income when you earn it. For employees, the government gets paid through tax withholding each time you get a paycheck (the amount withheld is based on your Form W-4). Retirees can have taxes withheld from Social Security payments and retirement plan distributions, or even have taxes taken out of a required minimum distribution. However, if you’re self-employed or don’t have taxes withheld from other sources of taxable income (such as interest, dividends, capital gains, alimony, or rental income), it’s up to you to periodically pay the IRS by making estimated tax payments.

Estimated taxes are typically paid in four equal installments based on the IRS’s annual schedule. Although they’re often called “quarterly” payments, the deadlines aren’t necessarily three months apart or cover three months of income. For the 2022 tax year, the payments are due by the dates shown in the table below.

Due Dates for 2022 Estimated Tax Payments

Payment When Income Earned in 2022 Due Date
1st Payment January 1 to March 31 April 18, 2022
2nd Payment April 1 to May 31 June 15, 2022
3rd Payment June 1 to August 31 September 15, 2022
4th Payment September 1 to December 31 January 17, 2023

There are some rules that allow you to stray from the set schedule above. For instance, if you paid all your 2022 estimated taxes by April 18, you’re off the hook for the rest of the year (if not, your next potential payment isn’t due until September 15). If you file your 2022 tax return by January 31, 2023, and pay the entire balance due with your return, then you don’t have to make the final payment due January 17.

You also don’t have to make estimated tax payments until you have income on which you will owe tax. So, for example, if you didn’t have any taxable income in 2022 until August, you don’t have to make an estimated tax payment until September 15. At that point, you can either pay your entire estimated tax by the September 15 due date or pay it in two installments by September 15 and January 17.

If at least two-thirds of your gross income is from farming or fishing, you can make just one estimated tax payment for the 2022 tax year by January 17, 2023. If you file your 2022 tax return by March 1, 2023, and pay all the tax you owe at that time, you don’t need to make any estimated tax payments.

Extended Due Dates for Disaster Victims

Victims of certain natural disasters get more time to make estimated tax payments. This type of tax relief is typically authorized by the IRS after a disaster declaration is issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for a natural disaster. As a result, the deadline for making the first estimated tax payment for 2022 was pushed back to May 16, 2022, for victims of the (1) severe storms and tornadoes in Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky and Tennessee that began on December 10, 2021; and (2) wildfires and straight-line winds in Colorado that began on December 30, 2021. Likewise, the deadline for the first 2022 estimated tax payment was shifted to June 15, 2022 (the same day that the second payment was due), for victims of the severe storms, flooding and landslides in Puerto Rico that began on February 4, 2022.

For people impacted by the wildfires and straight-line winds in New Mexico that began on April 5, 2022, the first, second, and third estimated tax payment deadlines for 2022 were moved to September 30, 2022.

The second estimated tax payment deadline for 2022 was also pushed to September 1, 2022, for victims of the severe storms, tornadoes, and flooding in Oklahoma that began on May 2, 2022.

Both the second and third 2022 estimated tax payments were shifted to October 17, 2022, for taxpayers impacted by the severe storms and flooding in Montana that started on June 10, 2022.

For victims of the storms in Arizona on July 17 and 18, 2022, the severe storms and flooding in Missouri that started on July 25, 2022, and the severe storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides in Kentucky that began on July 26, 2022, the deadline for the third 2022 estimated tax payment was moved to November 15, 2022.

Finally, for people impacted by the Mississippi water crisis that began on August 30, 2022, the due date for the third and fourth estimated tax payments for the 2022 tax year were shifted to February 15, 2023.

Calculating Your Estimated Tax Payments

Use Form 1040-ES to calculate your estimated tax payments. Start by figuring your expected adjusted gross income, taxable income, taxes, deductions, and credits for the year – there’s a worksheet to help you out in the instructions for Form 1040-ES. You can also look at your previous year’s tax return for a general guide. What you ultimately want is an estimate of the income you expect to earn for the year.

If your estimate is too high, just complete another Form 1040-ES worksheet to recalculate your estimated tax for the next payment. Likewise, if your estimate is too low, go to the Form 1040-ES worksheet again to readjust your next estimated tax payment. You should also recalculate if your own personal situation changes or if there are tax law changes that can affect your tax liability for the year.

How to Pay Estimated Taxes

Use Form 1040-ES to pay your estimated taxes. There are several ways to pay estimated taxes, including by check, cash, money order, credit card and debit card. There are many online payment options, too, such as the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). The various payment methods are described in the instructions for Form 1040-ES.

Penalties for Not Making Estimated Taxes

Whether you make estimated tax payments or rely on withholding, you could be hit with a penalty if you don’t pay enough tax throughout the year. The penalty doesn’t apply if you owe less than $1,000 in tax. You can also avoid the penalty if your 2022 withholding or estimated tax payments equal at least 90% of your 2022 tax liability, or 100% of the tax shown on your 2021 return (110% if your 2021 adjusted gross income was more than $150,000).

State Estimated Taxes

Finally, unless you live in a state with no income tax, you probably owe estimated tax payments to your state, too. Due dates for state payments may or may not coincide with the federal dates, so be sure to check with the appropriate tax agency in your state.

Estimated Taxes: How to Determine What to Pay and When Top Written by a TurboTax Expert • Reviewed by a TurboTax CPA Updated for Tax Year 2021 • July 12, 2022 08:34 PM OVERVIEW We’ll make it easy for you to figure out if you have to pay estimated taxes and if so, how much. Figuring when and how to pay Do I need to pay estimated taxes? Which option should I choose? For information on the third coronavirus relief package, please visit our “American Rescue Plan: What Does it Mean for You and a Third Stimulus Check” blog post.   Key Takeaways • If you expect to owe more than $1,000 in federal taxes for the tax year, you may need to make estimated quarterly tax payments using Form 1040-ES, or else face a penalty for underpayment. • If your federal income tax withholding (plus any timely estimated taxes you paid) amounts to at least 90 percent of the total tax that you will owe for this tax year, or at least 100 percent of the total tax on your previous year’s return (110 percent for AGIs greater than $75,000 for single and separate filers and $150,000 for married filing joint), you most likely will not need to make estimated tax payments. • If you don’t calculate and pay your first estimated payment until after April 15, when the first quarterly payment is typically due, then you will need to make your payments as soon as you can to “catch up” but you might still have a penalty.

But if you are self-employed, or if you have income other than your employment wages, you may need to pay estimated taxes each quarter. You may owe estimated taxes if you receive income that isn’t subject to withholding, such as: Interest income Dividends Gains from sales of stock or other assets Earnings from a business Alimony that is taxable Do I need to pay estimated taxes? This depends on your situation. The rule is that you must pay your taxes as you go throughout the year through withholding or making estimated tax payments. If at filing time, you have not paid enough income taxes through withholding or quarterly estimated payments, you may have to pay a penalty for underpayment. To determine whether you need to make quarterly estimates, answer these questions: Will you owe less than $1,000 in taxes for the tax year after subtracting your federal income tax withholding from the total amount of tax you expect to owe this year? If so, you’re safe—you don’t need to make estimated tax payments. Do you expect your federal income tax withholding to amount to at least 90 percent of the total tax that you will owe for this tax year?

Quarterly Estimated Payments Due Dates – Get It Back

Quarterly Estimated Payments Due Dates – Get It Back Quarterly Estimated Payments Due Dates If you expect to owe more than $1,000 in taxes (that’s earning roughly $5,000 in self-employment income), then you are required to pay estimated taxes. People who work for an employer have a portion of their taxes taken out of each paycheck. Self-employed workers don’t, so you’ll need to pay your own taxes. Most self-employed workers pay quarterly estimated taxes. You can use this simple tool to calculate your estimated taxes. If you expect to owe more than $1,000 in taxes (that’s earning roughly $5,000 in self-employment income), then you are required to pay estimated taxes. If you don’t make estimated tax payments, you may be charged fees by the IRS. Estimated payments are due four times a year on the following dates: Income from: Quarterly Estimated Taxes Due: January 1 to March 31 April 15 April 1 to May 31 June 15 June 1 to August 31 September 15 September 1 to December 31 January 15 of the following year You are required to pay 100 percent of the total of your prior year’s taxes or 90 percent of your estimated current year’s taxes. If you make over $150,000 in self-employment income, you must pay 110 percent of last year’s taxes. If you didn’t owe taxes last year, you aren’t required to make estimated tax payments. However, it is a good idea to pay estimated taxes so you don’t have a large bill at tax time that you are unprepared to pay. If this is your first time earning self-employment income, you can estimate your yearly income based on your weekly earnings. Use this simple tool to calculate your estimated payment. How to Pay There are several easy ways to make your payments. 1. Electronic If you’re comfortable online, one option is to use the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). You’ll have to enroll on their website. Just make sure to do this before a payment is due, as you won’t be able to make any payments the day you register. Another electronic option is Direct Pay on the IRS website. Direct Pay does not require registration and, like EFTPS, makes payments directly from your bank account. There are no fees associated with direct bank transfers. To make payments by debit or credit card, choose one of the IRS approved payment processors and note the varying processing fees. If you e-file your taxes, you can make and schedule payments from your bank account at tax time with Electronic Funds Withdrawal. 2. Phone You can choose one of the IRS-recognized service providers to make payments by phone with a credit or debit card. Ask about the processing fees before sharing your card information so you aren’t surprised. Alternatively, once enrolled with EFTPS, you can make payments by phone. 3. Mail If you prefer making a physical payment, you can mail a check or money order for your estimated payments. Once you’ve calculated the amount you must pay, fill out the payment voucher on Form 1040ES. This is the least secure payment method. Carefully consider other options available to you before mailing a payment. Preparing for payments Remembering to pay your estimated payments can be tricky. Set your own calendar reminders, phone alarms, or whatever it takes to remember these important deadlines. It can also be hard to put money aside for quarterly estimated payments. One option is to establish automatic monthly or biweekly bank transfers to a designated account so that you don’t have access to any money you set aside for your taxes. You can also treat these payments like a bill and send a portion to the IRS each month when you pay other bills. If it’s tax time and you can’t afford to pay your taxes, file your taxes anyway, as not filing can lead to penalty fees.

But if you’re self-employed or get non-wage income, you’ll most likely have to set aside some money and pay estimated taxes four times a year.What are estimated taxes?Income unaffected by federal tax withholding throughout the year is still subject to other tax payments. These payments are kept track of and paid through estimated taxes, which must be paid as income is earned during the year.However, taxpayers are sometimes able to get around making payments by having more taxes withheld from their paychecks. Penalties and interest generally apply for underpayments and late payments.Examples of income not normally subject to tax withholding include: Interest. Dividends. Capital gains. Self-employment earnings. Gig economy earnings. Prizes. Rents. Alimony. Unemployment compensation. Social Security benefits in some cases. The IRS wants Americans to pay taxes as they earn money. Normally, penalties and interest apply for underpayments and late payments.Because of the pandemic in 2020, some tax filing deadlines were relaxed and extended. Similarly, interest and penalties were waived and didn’t begin accruing until mid-July.“Keep in mind that due to COVID-19 the 1040 returns for 2019 were moved from being due on April 15 to July 15,” says Judy O’Connor of accounting firm O’Connor & Rodriguez, PA, in Miami Shores, Florida. “And then due to COVID the first two quarterly payments for estimated taxes were moved from April 15 and June 15 to July 15.”But “as of now,” no changes are planned for the 2021 tax year due to the pandemic, she adds.

When are the quarterly estimated tax payments due?

When are the quarterly estimated tax payments due?Quarterly tax payments are due April 15, June 15 and September 15 of the tax year, and January 15 of the next year. Your income tax liability accrues on income as it is earned, rather than being due on April 15 of the next year. If you receive income unevenly during the year (e.g., from a seasonal business, capital gain, severance pay or bonus) you may annualize your income. Complete the MI-2210 Annualized Income Worksheet to determine what quarter your payments are due. You may make estimated tax payments using Michigan Department of Treasury’s e-Payments system or mail your estimated payment with a Michigan Estimated Tax voucher (MI-1040ES). To ensure your estimated tax payment is received timely, allow 3 to 5 days for an electronic payment to be received and 2 weeks to post to your account.  Allow 2 weeks for a mailed payment to be received and 8 weeks to post to your account. Note: Payments that are not received by the due date will be applied to the following estimated tax quarter. Penalty is 25% for failing to file estimated payments or 10% of underpaid tax per quarter.  Interest is 1% above the prime rate.
