Who Must Pay Estimated Tax If you owed additional tax for 2013, you may have to pay estimated tax for 2014. Prepare 2011 taxes 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. Prepare 2011 taxes General Rule In most cases, you must pay estimated tax for 2014 if both of the following apply. Prepare 2011 taxes You expect to owe at least $1,000 in tax for 2014, after subtracting your withholding and refundable credits. Prepare 2011 taxes 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. Prepare 2011 taxes Your 2013 tax return must cover all 12 months. Prepare 2011 taxes Note. Prepare 2011 taxes The percentages in (2a) or (2b) above may be different if you are a farmer, fisherman, or higher income taxpayer. Prepare 2011 taxes See Special Rules , later. Prepare 2011 taxes 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. Prepare 2011 taxes Figure 2-A takes you through the general rule. Prepare 2011 taxes You may find this helpful in determining if you must pay estimated tax. Prepare 2011 taxes If all your income will be subject to income tax withholding, you probably do not need to pay estimated tax. Prepare 2011 taxes Example 1. Prepare 2011 taxes Jane Smart uses Figure 2-A and the following information to figure whether she should pay estimated tax for 2014. Prepare 2011 taxes She files as head of household claiming her dependent son, takes the standard deduction, and expects no refundable credits for 2014. Prepare 2011 taxes 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). Prepare 2011 taxes 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. Prepare 2011 taxes 50). Prepare 2011 taxes Jane does not need to pay estimated tax. Prepare 2011 taxes Example 2. Prepare 2011 taxes The facts are the same as in Example 1, except that Jane expects only $8,700 tax to be withheld in 2014. Prepare 2011 taxes Because that is less than $9,913. Prepare 2011 taxes 50, her answer to box 2a is NO. Prepare 2011 taxes 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). Prepare 2011 taxes Jane must increase her withholding or pay estimated tax for 2014. Prepare 2011 taxes Example 3. Prepare 2011 taxes The facts are the same as in Example 2, except that the total tax shown on Jane's 2013 return was $8,600. Prepare 2011 taxes Because she expects to have more than $8,600 withheld in 2014 ($8,700), her answer to box 2b is YES. Prepare 2011 taxes Jane does not need to pay estimated tax for 2014. Prepare 2011 taxes Married Taxpayers If you qualify to make joint estimated tax payments, apply the rules discussed here to your joint estimated income. Prepare 2011 taxes You and your spouse can make joint estimated tax payments even if you are not living together. Prepare 2011 taxes 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).

Prepare 2011 taxes These individuals can take credit only for the estimated tax payments that he or she made. Prepare 2011 taxes If you and your spouse cannot make joint estimated tax payments, apply these rules to your separate estimated income. Prepare 2011 taxes Making joint or separate estimated tax payments will not affect your choice of filing a joint tax return or separate returns for 2014. Prepare 2011 taxes 2013 separate returns and 2014 joint return. Prepare 2011 taxes   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.

Prepare 2011 taxes You file a separate return if you file as single, head of household, or married filing separately. Prepare 2011 taxes   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. Prepare 2011 taxes Then multiply the tax on the joint return by the following fraction. Prepare 2011 taxes      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.

Prepare 2011 taxes Of the $48,500 taxable income, $40,100 was Joe's and the rest was Heather's. Prepare 2011 taxes For 2014, they plan to file married filing separately. Prepare 2011 taxes 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.

Prepare 2011 taxes If you figure your payments using the regular installment method and later refigure your payments because of an increase in income, you may be charged a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax for the period(s) before you changed your payments. Prepare 2011 taxes To see how you may be able to avoid or reduce this penalty, see Annualized Income Installment Method (Schedule AI) in chapter 4. Prepare 2011 taxes 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. Prepare 2011 taxes 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. Prepare 2011 taxes To see whether you can pay less for any period, complete the 2014 Annualized Estimated Tax Worksheet (Worksheet 2-9).

Prepare 2011 taxes How To Pay Estimated Tax There are several ways to pay estimated tax. Prepare 2011 taxes Credit an overpayment on your 2013 return to your 2014 estimated tax.

Prepare 2011 taxes Credit an Overpayment If you show an overpayment of tax after completing your Form 1040 or Form 1040A for 2013, you can apply part or all of it to your estimated tax for 2014. Prepare 2011 taxes On Form 1040, or Form 1040A, enter the amount you want credited to your estimated tax rather than refunded. Prepare 2011 taxes Take the amount you have credited into account when figuring your estimated tax payments. Prepare 2011 taxes If you timely file your 2013 return, treat the credit as a payment made on April 15, 2014. Prepare 2011 taxes If you are a beneficiary of an estate or trust, and the trustee elects to credit 2014 trust payments of estimated tax to you, you can treat the amount credited as paid by you on January 15, 2015. Prepare 2011 taxes If you choose to have an overpayment of tax credited to your estimated tax, you cannot have any of that amount refunded to you until you file your tax return for the following year. Prepare 2011 taxes You also cannot use that overpayment in any other way. Prepare 2011 taxes Example.

Prepare 2011 taxes Because the $750 had already been applied to her 2014 estimated tax or refunded to her, the IRS billed her for the additional $250 she owed, plus penalties and interest. Prepare 2011 taxes Kathleen could not use any of the $600 she had credited to her 2014 estimated tax to pay this bill.
