Federal estimated payments are generally payments that you make to the IRS either because:
- You are self-employed, or
- You owed the IRS on your tax return last year
You would have had to personally mail these payments to the IRS in quarterly installments throughout the year. Most people don't make estimated payments because their employers withhold federal taxes for them automatically. To report these payments, please follow the guided pathway below.
