Turbotax 2007 free Introduction If you did not pay enough tax, either through withholding or by making timely estimated tax payments, you will have underpaid your estimated tax and may have to pay a penalty. Turbotax 2007 free You may understand this chapter better if you can refer to a copy of your latest federal income tax return. Turbotax 2007 free No penalty. Turbotax 2007 free   Generally, you will not have to pay a penalty for 2013 if any of the following apply. Turbotax 2007 free The total of your withholding and timely estimated tax payments was at least as much as your 2012 tax. Turbotax 2007 free (See Special rules for certain individuals for higher income taxpayers and farmers and fishermen. Turbotax 2007 free ) The tax balance due on your 2013 return is no more than 10% of your total 2013 tax, and you paid all required estimated tax payments on time. Turbotax 2007 free Your total tax for 2013 (defined later) minus your withholding is less than $1,000. Turbotax 2007 free You did not have a tax liability for 2012. Turbotax 2007 free You did not have any withholding taxes and your current year tax (less any household employment taxes) is less than $1,000. Turbotax 2007 free IRS can figure the penalty for you. Turbotax 2007 free   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. Turbotax 2007 free Generally, the IRS will figure the penalty for you and send you a bill. Turbotax 2007 free   You only need to figure your penalty in the following three situations. Turbotax 2007 free You are requesting a waiver of part, but not all, of the penalty. Turbotax 2007 free You are using the annualized income installment method to figure the penalty. Turbotax 2007 free You are treating the federal income tax withheld from your income as paid on the dates actually withheld. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free See Form 2210 , later. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free (Your 2012 tax return must cover a 12-month period. Turbotax 2007 free ) Your 2013 tax, for this purpose, is defined under Total tax for 2013 , later. Turbotax 2007 free Special rules for certain individuals. Turbotax 2007 free   There are special rules for farmers and fishermen and certain higher income taxpayers. Turbotax 2007 free Farmers and fishermen. Turbotax 2007 free   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. Turbotax 2007 free   See Farmers and Fishermen , later. Turbotax 2007 free Higher income taxpayers. Turbotax 2007 free   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 . Turbotax 2007 free This rule does not apply to farmers or fishermen. Turbotax 2007 free   For 2012, AGI is the amount shown on Form 1040, line 37; Form 1040A, line 21; and Form 1040EZ, line 4. Turbotax 2007 free Penalty figured separately for each period. Turbotax 2007 free   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. Turbotax 2007 free This is true even if you are due a refund when you file your income tax return. Turbotax 2007 free Example. Turbotax 2007 free You did not make estimated tax payments for 2013 because you thought you had enough tax withheld from your wages. Turbotax 2007 free Early in January 2014, you made an estimate of your total 2013 tax. Turbotax 2007 free Then you realized that your withholding was $2,000 less than the amount needed to avoid a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free Your final return shows your total tax to be $50 less than your estimate, so you are due a refund. Turbotax 2007 free You do not owe a penalty for your payment due January 15, 2014. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free Minimum required each period. Turbotax 2007 free   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. Turbotax 2007 free 5% of your 2013 tax, or 25% of your 2012 tax. Turbotax 2007 free (Your 2012 tax return must cover a 12-month period. Turbotax 2007 free ) Minimum required for higher income taxpayers. Turbotax 2007 free   If you are subject to the rule for higher income taxpayers, discussed above, substitute 27. Turbotax 2007 free 5% for 25% in (2) under General Rule . Turbotax 2007 free When penalty is charged. Turbotax 2007 free   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. Turbotax 2007 free If a payment is mailed, the date of the U. Turbotax 2007 free S. Turbotax 2007 free postmark is considered the date of payment. Turbotax 2007 free   If a payment is made electronically, the date the payment is shown on your payment account (checking, savings, etc. Turbotax 2007 free ) is considered to be the date of payment. Turbotax 2007 free Estate or trust payments of estimated tax. Turbotax 2007 free   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. Turbotax 2007 free Amended returns. Turbotax 2007 free    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. Turbotax 2007 free If you file an amended return after the due date of the original return, use the tax shown on the original return. Turbotax 2007 free   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. Turbotax 2007 free This rule applies only if both original separate returns were filed on time. Turbotax 2007 free 2012 separate returns and 2013 joint return. Turbotax 2007 free    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. Turbotax 2007 free You filed a separate return if you filed as single, head of household, or married filing separately. Turbotax 2007 free 2012 joint return and 2013 separate returns. Turbotax 2007 free    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. Turbotax 2007 free You are filing a separate return if you file as single, head of household, or married filing separately. Turbotax 2007 free   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. Turbotax 2007 free Then multiply the tax on the joint return by the following fraction. Turbotax 2007 free   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. Turbotax 2007 free Lisa and Paul filed a joint return for 2012 showing taxable income of $49,000 and a tax of $6,484. Turbotax 2007 free Of the $49,000 taxable income, $41,000 was Lisa's and the rest was Paul's. Turbotax 2007 free For 2013, they file married filing separately. Turbotax 2007 free Lisa figures her share of the tax on the 2012 joint return as follows. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free 67% Lisa's part of tax on joint return ($6,484 × 88. Turbotax 2007 free 67%) $ 5,749 Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free   In most cases, you do not need to file Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free The IRS will figure the penalty for you and send you a bill. Turbotax 2007 free If you want us to figure the penalty for you, leave the penalty line on your return blank. Turbotax 2007 free Do not file Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free   To determine if you should file Form 2210, see Part II of Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free If you decide to figure your penalty, complete Part I, Part II, and either Part III or Part IV of the form and the Penalty Worksheet in the Instructions for Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free If you use Form 2210, you cannot file Form 1040EZ. Turbotax 2007 free   On Form 1040, enter the amount of your penalty on line 77. Turbotax 2007 free If you owe tax on line 76, add the penalty to your tax due and show your total payment on line 76. Turbotax 2007 free If you are due a refund, subtract the penalty from the overpayment and enter the result on line 73. Turbotax 2007 free   On Form 1040A, enter the amount of your penalty on line 46. Turbotax 2007 free If you owe tax on line 45, add the penalty to your tax due and show your total payment on line 45. Turbotax 2007 free If you are due a refund, subtract the penalty from the overpayment and enter the result on line 42. Turbotax 2007 free Lowering or eliminating the penalty. Turbotax 2007 free    You may be able to lower or eliminate your penalty if you file Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free You must file Form 2210 with your return if any of the following applies. Turbotax 2007 free You request a waiver. Turbotax 2007 free See Waiver of Penalty , later. Turbotax 2007 free You use the annualized income installment method. Turbotax 2007 free See the explanation of this method under Annualized Income Installment Method (Schedule AI) . Turbotax 2007 free You use your actual withholding for each payment period for estimated tax purposes. Turbotax 2007 free See Actual withholding method under Figuring Your Underpayment (Part IV, Section A). Turbotax 2007 free You base any of your required installments on the tax shown on your 2012 return and you filed or are filing a joint return for either 2012 or 2013, but not for both years. Turbotax 2007 free Exceptions Generally, you do not have to pay an underpayment penalty if either: Your total tax is less than $1,000, or You had no tax liability last year. Turbotax 2007 free Less Than $1,000 Due You do not owe a penalty if the total tax shown on your return minus the amount you paid through withholding (including excess social security and tier 1 railroad retirement (RRTA) tax withholding) is less than $1,000. Turbotax 2007 free Total tax for 2013. Turbotax 2007 free   For 2013, your total tax on Form 1040 is the amount on line 61 reduced by the following. Turbotax 2007 free    Unreported social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax from Forms 4137 or 8919 (line 57). Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free Any refundable credit amounts listed on lines 64a, 65, 66, 70, and any credit from Form 8885 included on line 71. Turbotax 2007 free   If you filed Form 1040A, your 2013 total tax is the amount on line 35 reduced by any refundable credits on lines 38a, 39, and 40. Turbotax 2007 free   If you filed Form 1040EZ, your 2013 total tax is the amount on line 10 reduced by the amount on line 8a. Turbotax 2007 free Note. Turbotax 2007 free When figuring the amount on line 60, include household employment taxes only if you had federal income tax withheld from your income or you would owe the penalty even if you did not include those taxes. Turbotax 2007 free Paid through withholding. Turbotax 2007 free    For 2013, the amount you paid through withholding on Form 1040 is the amount on line 62 plus any excess social security or tier 1 RRTA tax withholding on line 69. Turbotax 2007 free Add to that any write-in amount on line 72 identified as “Form 8689. Turbotax 2007 free ” On Form 1040A, the amount you paid through withholding is the amount on line 36 plus any excess social security or tier 1 RRTA tax withholding included on line 41. Turbotax 2007 free On Form 1040EZ, it is the amount on line 7. Turbotax 2007 free No Tax Liability Last Year You do not owe a penalty if you had no tax liability last year and you were a U. Turbotax 2007 free S. Turbotax 2007 free citizen or resident for the whole year. Turbotax 2007 free For this rule to apply, your tax year must have included all 12 months of the year. Turbotax 2007 free You had no tax liability for 2012 if your total tax was zero or you were not required to file an income tax return. Turbotax 2007 free Example. Turbotax 2007 free Ray, who is single and 22 years old, was unemployed for a few months during 2012. Turbotax 2007 free He earned $6,700 in wages before he was laid off, and he received $1,400 in unemployment compensation afterwards. Turbotax 2007 free He had no other income. Turbotax 2007 free 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). Turbotax 2007 free He filed a return only to have his withheld income tax refunded to him. Turbotax 2007 free In 2013, Ray began regular work as an independent contractor. Turbotax 2007 free Ray made no estimated tax payments in 2013. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free Total tax for 2012. Turbotax 2007 free   For 2012, your total tax on Form 1040 is the amount on line 61 reduced by the following. Turbotax 2007 free    Unreported social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax from Forms 4137 or 8919 (line 57). Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free Any refundable credit amounts listed on lines 64a, 65, 66, 70, and credits from Forms 8801 (line 27 only), and 8885 included on line 71. Turbotax 2007 free   If you filed Form 1040A, your 2012 total tax is the amount on line 35 reduced by any refundable credits on lines 38a, 39, and 40. Turbotax 2007 free   If you filed Form 1040EZ, your 2012 total tax is the amount on line 11 reduced by the amount on line 8a. Turbotax 2007 free Figuring Your Required Annual Payment (Part I) Figure your required annual payment in Part I of Form 2210, following the line-by-line instructions. Turbotax 2007 free If you rounded the entries on your tax return to whole dollars, you can round on Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free Example. Turbotax 2007 free The tax on Lori Lane's 2012 return was $12,400. Turbotax 2007 free Her AGI was not more than $150,000 for either 2012 or 2013. Turbotax 2007 free The tax on her 2013 return (Form 1040, line 55) is $13,044. Turbotax 2007 free Line 56 (self-employment tax) is $8,902. Turbotax 2007 free Her 2013 total tax is $21,946. Turbotax 2007 free For 2013, Lori had $1,600 income tax withheld and made four equal estimated tax payments ($1,000 each). Turbotax 2007 free 90% of her 2013 tax is $19,751. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free The IRS will figure the penalty for Lori, but she decides to figure it herself on Form 2210 and pay it with her taxes when she files her tax return. Turbotax 2007 free Lori's required annual payment is $12,400 (100% of 2012 tax) because that is smaller than 90% of her 2013 tax. Turbotax 2007 free Different 2012 filing status. Turbotax 2007 free    If you file a separate return for 2013, but you filed a joint return with your spouse for 2012, see 2012 joint return and 2013 separate returns , earlier, to figure the amount to enter as your 2012 tax on line 8 of Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free If you qualify to use this method, it will result in the same penalty amount as the regular method. Turbotax 2007 free However, either the annualized income installment method or the actual withholding method, explained later, may result in a smaller penalty. Turbotax 2007 free You can use the short method only if you meet one of the following requirements. Turbotax 2007 free You made no estimated tax payments for 2013 (it does not matter whether you had income tax withholding). Turbotax 2007 free You paid the same amount of estimated tax on each of the four payment due dates. Turbotax 2007 free 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. Turbotax 2007 free Note. Turbotax 2007 free If any payment was made before the due date, you can use the short method, but the penalty may be less if you use the regular method. Turbotax 2007 free However, if the payment was only a few days early, the difference is likely to be small. Turbotax 2007 free You cannot use the short method if any of the following apply. Turbotax 2007 free You made any estimated tax payments late. Turbotax 2007 free You checked box C or D in Part II of Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free You are filing Form 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ and you did not receive wages as an employee subject to U. Turbotax 2007 free S. Turbotax 2007 free income tax withholding. Turbotax 2007 free If you use the short method, you cannot use the annualized income installment method to figure your underpayment for each payment period. Turbotax 2007 free Also, you cannot use your actual withholding during each period to figure your payments for each period. Turbotax 2007 free These methods, which may give you a smaller penalty amount, are explained under Figuring Your Underpayment (Part IV, Section A). Turbotax 2007 free Complete Part III of Form 2210 following the line-by-line instructions in the Instructions for Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free Regular Method for Figuring the Penalty (Part IV) You can use the regular method in Part IV of Form 2210 to figure your penalty for underpayment of estimated tax if you paid one or more estimated tax payments earlier than the due date. Turbotax 2007 free You must use the regular method in Part IV of Form 2210 to figure your penalty for underpayment of estimated tax if any of the following apply to you. Turbotax 2007 free You paid one or more estimated tax payments on a date after the due date. Turbotax 2007 free You paid at least one, but less than four, installments of estimated tax. Turbotax 2007 free You paid estimated tax payments in un- equal amounts. Turbotax 2007 free You use the annualized income installment method to figure your underpayment for each payment period. Turbotax 2007 free You use your actual withholding during each payment period to figure your payments. Turbotax 2007 free Under the regular method, figure your underpayment for each payment period in Section A, then figure your penalty using the Penalty Worksheet in the Instructions for Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free Enter the results on line 27 of Section B. Turbotax 2007 free Figuring Your Underpayment (Part IV, Section A) Figure your underpayment of estimated tax for each payment period in Section A following the line-by-line instructions in the Instructions for Form 2210. Turbotax 2007 free Complete lines 20 through 26 of the first column before going to line 20 of the next column. Turbotax 2007 free Required installments—line 18. Turbotax 2007 free   Your required payment for each payment period (line 18) is usually one-fourth of your required annual payment (Part I, line 9). Turbotax 2007 free This method—the regular method—is the one to use if you received your income evenly throughout the year. Turbotax 2007 free   However, if you did not receive your income evenly throughout the year, you may be able to lower or eliminate your penalty by figuring your underpayment using the annualized income installment method. Turbotax 2007 free First complete Schedule AI (Form 2210), then enter the amounts from line 25 of that schedule on line 18 of Form 2210, Part IV. Turbotax 2007 free See Annualized Income Installment Method (Schedule AI), later. Turbotax 2007 free Payments made—line 19. Turbotax 2007 free   Enter in each column the total of: Your estimated tax paid after the due date for the previous column and by the due date shown at the top of the column, and One-fourth of your withholding. Turbotax 2007 free For special rules for figuring your payments, see Form 2210 instructions for line 19. Turbotax 2007 free   If you file Form 1040, your withholding is the amount on line 62, plus any excess social security or tier 1 RRTA tax withholding on line 69.
