Quarterly tax payments come around every 3 months. For business owners, payments for the following year are usually estimated by your accountant or through which ever tax filing software you might be using.
It’s important to keep up with your quarterly payments. Otherwise, you incur penalties from the IRS and your state.
Quarterly payments are made to both the IRS and your state. In some rare cases, you may have a refund on your filed income taxes. This refund can be applied to your first or even second quarterly tax payment. It just depends on the amount of the refund.
To make it simple to remember when to pay your quarterly taxes, I’ve created a printable below that you can pin up right next to your monitor or desk. You can download the estimated quarterly tax schedule in PDF format.
You can certainly mail in your quarterly tax payment every 3 months. But a simple and quicker method is to pay them online. I’ve tracked down every online state payment website and also listed the IRS website for paying your quarterly taxes online.
