Estimated Tax Payments
Income taxes are based on a "pay-as-you-go" system, requiring taxpayers to pay taxes as they earn income through withholdings or estimated tax payments. Withholdings are the taxes your employer takes from your paycheck to send to the IRS and state. Self-employed taxpayers are not subject to withholdings because they do not have an employer to take taxes from their paycheck. Instead, they must voluntarily pay their taxes during the year.
If you pay your taxes at the time you file your tax return on April 15th, the IRS and state will penalize you for not having paid your taxes during the year. The Taxperts can determine the correct amount of estimated tax payments to prevent any future penalties and interest due when you file your tax return.
