Even though the Government is currently shut down, IRS has not yet changed any of the deadlines for making estimated payments. This means that if you are required to make quarterly estimated payments, your final estimated payment for 2018 is still due Tuesday, January 15th of 2019.
Make sure you remember to make your last estimated payment on time for 2018 to avoid estimated tax penalties!
The Internal Revenue Service requires estimated quarterly tax payments for your 1040 return if:
- You expect to owe $1,000 or more for 2018 (after subtracting withholding and refundable credits), or
- You expect your withholding and refundable credits to be less than the smaller of:
- 90% of the tax shown on your 2018 tax return, or
- 100% of the tax shown on your 2017 tax return.
