Frequently Asked Questions about Quarterly Estimated Taxes

Four times a year, anyone making a profit or has taxable income, but doesn’t have taxes being withheld simultaneously (like a W-2), may need to make quarterly estimated tax payments.
Individuals that receive tax forms other than a W-2 typically have to pay, but there are exemptions for specific professions, such as fishing and farming.
Exempt industries and W-2 employees without additional income sources do not have to pay quarterly taxes.
Small business owners use IRS Form 1040-ES to calculate estimated tax they owe. There are three steps to calculating estimated payments.

  1. Calculate your taxable income based on your marital status and income.
  2. Compute any credits and deductions you may get, such as child tax credits or credits for taxes already withheld.
  3. Calculate your remaining tax due.

If you don’t make sufficient payments throughout the year or on time, then an extra penalty may be added to what you owe on your tax return. That amount will depend on how much you underpaid and exactly how late you were with your estimated payments.
You can pay estimated taxes online or use two additional options the IRS accepts. Fees may apply depending on the method you choose.
  1. Electronic.
  2. Phone.
  3. Mail
