How to fill out a 1040x instructions   If you think you owe the penalty, but you do not want to figure it yourself when you file your tax return, you may not have to. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Generally, the IRS will figure the penalty for you and send you a bill. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   You only need to figure your penalty in the following three situations. How to fill out a 1040x instructions You are requesting a waiver of part, but not all, of the penalty. How to fill out a 1040x instructions You are using the annualized income installment method to figure the penalty. How to fill out a 1040x instructions You are treating the federal income tax withheld from your income as paid on the dates actually withheld. How to fill out a 1040x instructions However, if these situations do not apply to you, and you think you can lower or eliminate your penalty, complete Form 2210 or Form 2210-F and attach it to your return. How to fill out a 1040x instructions See Form 2210 , later. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Topics - This chapter discusses: The general rule for the underpayment penalty, Special rules for certain individuals, Exceptions to the underpayment penalty, How to figure your underpayment and the amount of your penalty on Form 2210, and How to ask the IRS to waive the penalty. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Useful Items - You may want to see: Form (and Instructions) 2210 Underpayment of Estimated Tax by Individuals, Estates, and Trusts 2210-F Underpayment of Estimated Tax by Farmers and Fishermen See chapter 5 for information about getting these forms. How to fill out a 1040x instructions General Rule In general, you may owe a penalty for 2013 if the total of your withholding and timely estimated tax payments did not equal at least the smaller of: 90% of your 2013 tax, or 100% of your 2012 tax. How to fill out a 1040x instructions (Your 2012 tax return must cover a 12-month period. How to fill out a 1040x instructions ) Your 2013 tax, for this purpose, is defined under Total tax for 2013 , later. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Special rules for certain individuals. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   There are special rules for farmers and fishermen and certain higher income taxpayers. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Farmers and fishermen. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   If at least two-thirds of your gross income for 2012 or 2013 is from farming or fishing, substitute  662/3% for 90% in (1) above. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   See Farmers and Fishermen , later. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Higher income taxpayers. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   If your AGI for 2012 was more than $150,000 ($75,000 if your 2013 filing status is married filing a separate return), substitute 110% for 100% in (2) under General Rule . How to fill out a 1040x instructions This rule does not apply to farmers or fishermen.

How to fill out a 1040x instructions Penalty figured separately for each period. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   Because the penalty is figured separately for each payment period, you may owe a penalty for an earlier payment period even if you later paid enough to make up the underpayment. How to fill out a 1040x instructions This is true even if you are due a refund when you file your income tax return. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Example. How to fill out a 1040x instructions You did not make estimated tax payments for 2013 because you thought you had enough tax withheld from your wages. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Early in January 2014, you made an estimate of your total 2013 tax. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Then you realized that your withholding was $2,000 less than the amount needed to avoid a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. How to fill out a 1040x instructions On January 10, you made an estimated tax payment of $3,000, which is the difference between your withholding and your estimate of your total tax. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Your final return shows your total tax to be $50 less than your estimate, so you are due a refund. How to fill out a 1040x instructions You do not owe a penalty for your payment due January 15, 2014. How to fill out a 1040x instructions However, you may owe a penalty through January 10, 2014, the day you made the $3,000 payment, for your underpayments for the earlier payment periods. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Minimum required each period. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   You will owe a penalty for any 2013 payment period for which your estimated tax payment plus your withholding for the period and overpayments applied from previous periods was less than the smaller of: 22. How to fill out a 1040x instructions 5% of your 2013 tax, or 25% of your 2012 tax. How to fill out a 1040x instructions (Your 2012 tax return must cover a 12-month period. How to fill out a 1040x instructions ) Minimum required for higher income taxpayers. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   If you are subject to the rule for higher income taxpayers, discussed above, substitute 27. How to fill out a 1040x instructions 5% for 25% in (2) under General Rule . How to fill out a 1040x instructions When penalty is charged. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   If you miss a payment or you paid less than the minimum required in a period, you may be charged an underpayment penalty from the date the amount was due to the date the payment is made. How to fill out a 1040x instructions If a payment is mailed, the date of the U. How to fill out a 1040x instructions S. How to fill out a 1040x instructions postmark is considered the date of payment. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   If a payment is made electronically, the date the payment is shown on your payment account (checking, savings, etc. How to fill out a 1040x instructions ) is considered to be the date of payment. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Estate or trust payments of estimated tax. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   If you have estimated taxes credited to you from an estate or trust (Schedule K-1 (Form 1041)), treat the payment as made by you on January 15, 2014. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Amended returns. How to fill out a 1040x instructions    If you file an amended return by the due date of your original return, use the tax shown on your amended return to figure your required estimated tax payments. How to fill out a 1040x instructions If you file an amended return after the due date of the original return, use the tax shown on the original return. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   However, if you and your spouse file a joint return after the due date to replace separate returns you originally filed by the due date, use the tax shown on the joint return to figure your required estimated tax payments. How to fill out a 1040x instructions This rule applies only if both original separate returns were filed on time. How to fill out a 1040x instructions 2012 separate returns and 2013 joint return. How to fill out a 1040x instructions    If you file a joint return with your spouse for 2013, but you filed separate returns for 2012, your 2012 tax is the total of the tax shown on your separate returns. How to fill out a 1040x instructions You filed a separate return if you filed as single, head of household, or married filing separately. How to fill out a 1040x instructions 2012 joint return and 2013 separate returns. How to fill out a 1040x instructions    If you file a separate return for 2013, but you filed a joint return with your spouse for 2012, your 2012 tax is your share of the tax on the joint return. How to fill out a 1040x instructions You are filing a separate return if you file as single, head of household, or married filing separately. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   To figure your share of the taxes on a joint return, first figure the tax both you and your spouse would have paid had you filed separate returns for 2012 using the same filing status as for 2013. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Then multiply the tax on the joint return by the following fraction. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   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.

How to fill out a 1040x instructions Of the $49,000 taxable income, $41,000 was Lisa's and the rest was Paul's. How to fill out a 1040x instructions For 2013, they file married filing separately. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Lisa figures her share of the tax on the 2012 joint return as follows. How to fill out a 1040x instructions 2012 tax on $41,000 based on a separate return $ 6,286 2012 tax on $8,000 based on a  separate return 803 Total $ 7,089 Lisa's percentage of total tax  ($6,286 ÷ $ 7,089) 88.

How to fill out a 1040x instructions He had no other income. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Even though he had gross income of $8,100, he did not have to pay income tax because his gross income was less than the filing requirement for a single person under age 65 ($9,750 for 2012).

How to fill out a 1040x instructions In 2013, Ray began regular work as an independent contractor. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Ray made no estimated tax payments in 2013. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Even though he did owe tax at the end of the year, Ray does not owe the underpayment penalty for 2013 because he had no tax liability in 2012. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Total tax for 2012. How to fill out a 1040x instructions   For 2012, your total tax on Form 1040 is the amount on line 61 reduced by the following. How to fill out a 1040x instructions    Unreported social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax from Forms 4137 or 8919 (line 57). How to fill out a 1040x instructions Any tax included on line 58 for excess contributions to IRAs, Archer MSAs, Coverdell education savings accounts, and health savings accounts, or any tax on excess accumulations in qualified retirement plans. How to fill out a 1040x instructions The following write-ins on line 60: Uncollected social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax on tips or group-term life insurance, Tax on excess golden parachute payments, Excise tax on insider stock compensation from an expatriated corporation, Look-back interest due under section 167(g), Look-back interest due under section 460(b), Recapture of federal mortgage subsidy, and Additional tax on advance payments of health coverage tax credit when not eligible.

How to fill out a 1040x instructions The tax on Lori Lane's 2012 return was $12,400. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Her AGI was not more than $150,000 for either 2012 or 2013. How to fill out a 1040x instructions The tax on her 2013 return (Form 1040, line 55) is $13,044. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Line 56 (self-employment tax) is $8,902. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Her 2013 total tax is $21,946. How to fill out a 1040x instructions For 2013, Lori had $1,600 income tax withheld and made four equal estimated tax payments ($1,000 each). How to fill out a 1040x instructions 90% of her 2013 tax is $19,751. How to fill out a 1040x instructions Because she paid less than her 2012 tax ($12,400) and less than 90% of her 2013 tax ($19,751), and does not meet an exception, Lori knows that she owes a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax.

How to fill out a 1040x instructions Lori's required annual payment is $12,400 (100% of 2012 tax) because that is smaller than 90% of her 2013 tax.

How to fill out a 1040x instructions Short Method for Figuring the Penalty (Part III) You may be able to use the short method in Part III of Form 2210 to figure your penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. How to fill out a 1040x instructions If you qualify to use this method, it will result in the same penalty amount as the regular method. How to fill out a 1040x instructions However, either the annualized income installment method or the actual withholding method, explained later, may result in a smaller penalty. How to fill out a 1040x instructions You can use the short method only if you meet one of the following requirements. How to fill out a 1040x instructions You made no estimated tax payments for 2013 (it does not matter whether you had income tax withholding). How to fill out a 1040x instructions You paid the same amount of estimated tax on each of the four payment due dates. How to fill out a 1040x instructions If you do not meet either requirement, figure your penalty using the regular method in Part IV of Form 2210 and the Penalty Worksheet in the instructions.
