Do you need to make an estimated tax payment by September 17?

Posted by Admin Posted on Sept 04 2018

To avoid interest and penalties, you must make sufficient income tax payments long before your April filing deadline through withholding, estimated tax payments or both. The third 2018 estimated tax payment deadline for individuals is Sept. 17. If you don’t have an employer withholding tax from your pay, you likely need to make estimated tax payments. But even with withholding, such payments can be necessary if you have more than a nominal amount of income from self-employment, investments, alimony, awards, prizes or other sources.
