#Good news! The IRS has extended the tax deadline to April 18th! As long as you submit your federal return by midnight on 4/18/2018, you won't be considered a late filer for your federal return. Direct debit tax payments that are submitted with your federal return (or on the IRS website) by 4/18 are also considered timely filed ×

Can I make an estimated tax payment in 2019 for 2018?

Yes, but only for the final quarter of 2018. The final deadline for 2018 quarterly estimated tax payments is Jan. 15, 2019.*

  • *You don’t have to make the payment due January 15, 2019, if you file your 2018 tax return by January 31, 2019, and pay the entire balance due with your return.

This tax payment should be based on earnings from September 1 - December 31, 2018.

If you still owe for previous quarters, or underestimated and underpaid your taxes, you could be subject to penalties, even if you expect a tax refund after you file your 2018 federal income tax return.

You can make estimated payments to the IRS online at irs.gov/payments
