Believe it or not, we are almost six months through the year. If you are a member of the clergy who is treated as self-employed in regards to Social Security and Medicare taxes, your second quarter estimated payment is due on 6/17/2019.

The United States has a pay-as-you-go tax system. The Internal Revenue Service expects taxpayers to pay their taxes as they earn income throughout the year, rather than waiting until the very last minute at the end of the year to make payments. Making your estimated payments on-time and in-full helps prevent getting an estimated tax penalty at the end of year.

Do you have questions about your estimated payments? Do you need them recalculated due to a change in income? Clergy Financial Resources calculates your estimated payments for you as part of our 1040 review process. Visit for more details about hiring CFR for your 1040 needs.
