Free file taxes 2011 Please click here for the text description of the image. Free file taxes 2011 Figure 2-A: Do You Have To Pay Estimated Tax? Who Must Pay Estimated Tax If you owed additional tax for 2013, you may have to pay estimated tax for 2014. Free file taxes 2011 You can use the following general rule as a guide during the year to see if you will have enough withholding, or should increase your withholding or make estimated tax payments. Free file taxes 2011 General Rule In most cases, you must pay estimated tax for 2014 if both of the following apply. Free file taxes 2011 You expect to owe at least $1,000 in tax for 2014, after subtracting your withholding and refundable credits. Free file taxes 2011 You expect your withholding and refundable credits to be less than the smaller of: 90% of the tax to be shown on your 2014 tax return, or 100% of the tax shown on your 2013 tax return. Free file taxes 2011 Your 2013 tax return must cover all 12 months. Free file taxes 2011 Note. Free file taxes 2011 The percentages in (2a) or (2b) above may be different if you are a farmer, fisherman, or higher income taxpayer. Free file taxes 2011 See Special Rules , later. Free file taxes 2011 If the result from using the general rule above suggests that you will not have enough withholding, complete the 2014 Estimated Tax Worksheet for a more accurate calculation. Free file taxes 2011 Figure 2-A takes you through the general rule. Free file taxes 2011 You may find this helpful in determining if you must pay estimated tax. Free file taxes 2011 If all your income will be subject to income tax withholding, you probably do not need to pay estimated tax. Free file taxes 2011 Example 1. Free file taxes 2011 Jane Smart uses Figure 2-A and the following information to figure whether she should pay estimated tax for 2014. Free file taxes 2011 She files as head of household claiming her dependent son, takes the standard deduction, and expects no refundable credits for 2014. Free file taxes 2011 Expected adjusted gross income (AGI) for 2014 $82,800 AGI for 2013 $73,700 Total tax on 2013 return (Form 1040,  line 61) $  8,746 Total 2014 estimated tax (line 13c of the 2014 Estimated Tax Worksheet) $11,015 Tax expected to be withheld in 2014 $10,000 Jane's answer to Figure 2-A, box 1, is YES; she expects to owe at least $1,000 for 2014 after subtracting her withholding from her expected total tax ($11,015 − $10,000 = $1,015). Free file taxes 2011 Her answer to box 2a is YES; she expects her income tax withholding ($10,000) to be at least 90% of the tax to be shown on her 2014 return ($11,015 × 90% = $9,913. Free file taxes 2011 50). Free file taxes 2011 Jane does not need to pay estimated tax. Free file taxes 2011 Example 2. Free file taxes 2011 The facts are the same as in Example 1, except that Jane expects only $8,700 tax to be withheld in 2014. Free file taxes 2011 Because that is less than $9,913. Free file taxes 2011 50, her answer to box 2a is NO. Free file taxes 2011 Jane's answer to box 2b is also NO; she does not expect her income tax withholding ($8,700) to be at least 100% of the total tax shown on her 2013 return ($8,746). Free file taxes 2011 Jane must increase her withholding or pay estimated tax for 2014. Free file taxes 2011 Example 3. Free file taxes 2011 The facts are the same as in Example 2, except that the total tax shown on Jane's 2013 return was $8,600. Free file taxes 2011 Because she expects to have more than $8,600 withheld in 2014 ($8,700), her answer to box 2b is YES. Free file taxes 2011 Jane does not need to pay estimated tax for 2014. Free file taxes 2011 Married Taxpayers If you qualify to make joint estimated tax payments, apply the rules discussed here to your joint estimated income. Free file taxes 2011 You and your spouse can make joint estimated tax payments even if you are not living together. Free file taxes 2011 However, you and your spouse cannot make joint estimated tax payments if: You are legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance, You and your spouse have different tax years, Either spouse is a nonresident alien (unless that spouse elected to be treated as a resident alien for tax purposes). Free file taxes 2011 See Choosing Resident Alien Status in Publication 519, or Individuals of the same sex and opposite sex who are in registered domestic partnerships, civil unions, or other similar formal relationships that are not marriages under state law cannot make joint estimated tax payments. Free file taxes 2011 These individuals can take credit only for the estimated tax payments that he or she made. Free file taxes 2011 If you and your spouse cannot make joint estimated tax payments, apply these rules to your separate estimated income. Free file taxes 2011 Making joint or separate estimated tax payments will not affect your choice of filing a joint tax return or separate returns for 2014. Free file taxes 2011 2013 separate returns and 2014 joint return. Free file taxes 2011   If you plan to file a joint return with your spouse for 2014, but you filed separate returns for 2013, your 2013 tax is the total of the tax shown on your separate returns. Free file taxes 2011 You filed a separate return if you filed as single, head of household, or married filing separately. Free file taxes 2011 2013 joint return and 2014 separate returns. Free file taxes 2011   If you plan to file a separate return for 2014, but you filed a joint return for 2013, your 2013 tax is your share of the tax on the joint return. Free file taxes 2011 You file a separate return if you file as single, head of household, or married filing separately. Free file taxes 2011   To figure your share of the tax on a joint return, first figure the tax both you and your spouse would have paid had you filed separate returns for 2013 using the same filing status for 2014. Free file taxes 2011 Then multiply the tax on the joint return by the following fraction. Free file taxes 2011      The tax you would have paid had you filed a separate return   The total tax you and your spouse would have paid had you filed separate returns Example. Free file taxes 2011 Joe and Heather filed a joint return for 2013 showing taxable income of $48,500 and a tax of $6,386. Free file taxes 2011 Of the $48,500 taxable income, $40,100 was Joe's and the rest was Heather's. Free file taxes 2011 For 2014, they plan to file married filing separately. Free file taxes 2011 Joe figures his share of the tax on the 2013 joint return as follows: Tax on $40,100 based on separate return $5,960 Tax on $8,400 based on separate return 843 Total $6,803 Joe's percentage of total ($5,960 ÷ $6,803) 87.

Free file taxes 2011 Annualized Income Installment Method If you do not receive your income evenly throughout the year (for example, your income from a repair shop you operate is much larger in the summer than it is during the rest of the year), your required estimated tax payment for one or more periods may be less than the amount figured using the regular installment method. Free file taxes 2011 The annualized income installment method annualizes your tax at the end of each period based on a reasonable estimate of your income, deductions, and other items relating to events that occurred from the beginning of the tax year through the end of the period.
