H&r block free efile  For federal tax purposes, individuals of the same sex are married if they were lawfully married in a state (or foreign country) whose laws authorize the marriage of two individuals of the same sex, even if the state (or foreign country) in which they now live does not recognize same-sex marriage. H&r block free efile The term "spouse" includes an individual married to a person of the same sex if the couple is lawfully married under state (or foreign) law. H&r block free efile However, individuals who have entered into a registered domestic partnership, civil union, or other similar relationship that is not called a marriage under state (or foreign) law are not married for federal tax purposes. H&r block free efile The word “state” as used here includes the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and U. H&r block free efile S. H&r block free efile territories and possessions. H&r block free efile It means any domestic jurisdiction that has the legal authority to sanction marriages.

H&r block free efile If individuals of the same sex are married, they generally must use the married filing jointly or married filing separately filing status.

H&r block free efile If you and your spouse file separate returns, you have to determine your community income and your separate income.

H&r block free efile This includes income from self-employment, interest, dividends, alimony, rent, gains from the sale of assets, prizes, and awards. H&r block free efile You also may have to pay estimated tax if the amount of income tax being withheld from your salary, pension, or other income is not enough. H&r block free efile Estimated tax is used to pay both income tax and self-employment tax, as well as other taxes and amounts reported on your tax return. H&r block free efile If you do not pay enough tax, either through withholding or estimated tax, or a combination of both, you may have to pay a penalty. H&r block free efile If you do not pay enough by the due date of each payment period (see When To Pay Estimated Tax , later), you may be charged a penalty even if you are due a refund when you file your tax return. H&r block free efile For information on when the penalty applies, see chapter 4. H&r block free efile It would be helpful for you to have a copy of your 2013 tax return and an estimate of your 2014 income nearby while reading this chapter. H&r block free efile Topics - This chapter discusses: Who must pay estimated tax, How to figure estimated tax (including illustrated examples), When to pay estimated tax, How to figure each payment, and How to pay estimated tax.

H&r block free efile Who Does Not Have To Pay Estimated Tax If you receive salaries and wages, you may be able to avoid paying estimated tax by asking your employer to take more tax out of your earnings. H&r block free efile To do this, file a new Form W-4 with your employer. H&r block free efile See chapter 1. H&r block free efile Estimated tax not required. H&r block free efile   You do not have to pay estimated tax for 2014 if you meet all three of the following conditions. H&r block free efile You had no tax liability for 2013. H&r block free efile You were a U. H&r block free efile S. H&r block free efile citizen or resident alien for the whole year. H&r block free efile Your 2013 tax year covered a 12-month period. H&r block free efile   You had no tax liability for 2013 if your total tax (defined later under Total tax for 2013—line 14b ) was zero or you did not have to file an income tax return. H&r block free efile Please click here for the text description of the image. H&r block free efile Figure 2-A: Do You Have To Pay Estimated Tax? Who Must Pay Estimated Tax If you owed additional tax for 2013, you may have to pay estimated tax for 2014. H&r block free efile You can use the following general rule as a guide during the year to see if you will have enough withholding, or should increase your withholding or make estimated tax payments. H&r block free efile General Rule In most cases, you must pay estimated tax for 2014 if both of the following apply. H&r block free efile You expect to owe at least $1,000 in tax for 2014, after subtracting your withholding and refundable credits. H&r block free efile You expect your withholding and refundable credits to be less than the smaller of: 90% of the tax to be shown on your 2014 tax return, or 100% of the tax shown on your 2013 tax return. H&r block free efile Your 2013 tax return must cover all 12 months. H&r block free efile Note. H&r block free efile The percentages in (2a) or (2b) above may be different if you are a farmer, fisherman, or higher income taxpayer. H&r block free efile See Special Rules , later. H&r block free efile If the result from using the general rule above suggests that you will not have enough withholding, complete the 2014 Estimated Tax Worksheet for a more accurate calculation. H&r block free efile Figure 2-A takes you through the general rule. H&r block free efile You may find this helpful in determining if you must pay estimated tax. H&r block free efile If all your income will be subject to income tax withholding, you probably do not need to pay estimated tax. H&r block free efile Example 1. H&r block free efile Jane Smart uses Figure 2-A and the following information to figure whether she should pay estimated tax for 2014. H&r block free efile She files as head of household claiming her dependent son, takes the standard deduction, and expects no refundable credits for 2014. H&r block free efile Expected adjusted gross income (AGI) for 2014 $82,800 AGI for 2013 $73,700 Total tax on 2013 return (Form 1040,  line 61) $  8,746 Total 2014 estimated tax (line 13c of the 2014 Estimated Tax Worksheet) $11,015 Tax expected to be withheld in 2014 $10,000 Jane's answer to Figure 2-A, box 1, is YES; she expects to owe at least $1,000 for 2014 after subtracting her withholding from her expected total tax ($11,015 − $10,000 = $1,015). H&r block free efile Her answer to box 2a is YES; she expects her income tax withholding ($10,000) to be at least 90% of the tax to be shown on her 2014 return ($11,015 × 90% = $9,913. H&r block free efile 50). H&r block free efile Jane does not need to pay estimated tax. H&r block free efile Example 2. H&r block free efile The facts are the same as in Example 1, except that Jane expects only $8,700 tax to be withheld in 2014. H&r block free efile Because that is less than $9,913. H&r block free efile 50, her answer to box 2a is NO. H&r block free efile Jane's answer to box 2b is also NO; she does not expect her income tax withholding ($8,700) to be at least 100% of the total tax shown on her 2013 return ($8,746). H&r block free efile Jane must increase her withholding or pay estimated tax for 2014. H&r block free efile Example 3. H&r block free efile The facts are the same as in Example 2, except that the total tax shown on Jane's 2013 return was $8,600. H&r block free efile Because she expects to have more than $8,600 withheld in 2014 ($8,700), her answer to box 2b is YES. H&r block free efile Jane does not need to pay estimated tax for 2014. H&r block free efile Married Taxpayers If you qualify to make joint estimated tax payments, apply the rules discussed here to your joint estimated income. H&r block free efile You and your spouse can make joint estimated tax payments even if you are not living together. H&r block free efile However, you and your spouse cannot make joint estimated tax payments if: You are legally separated under a decree of divorce or separate maintenance, You and your spouse have different tax years, Either spouse is a nonresident alien (unless that spouse elected to be treated as a resident alien for tax purposes). H&r block free efile See Choosing Resident Alien Status in Publication 519, or Individuals of the same sex and opposite sex who are in registered domestic partnerships, civil unions, or other similar formal relationships that are not marriages under state law cannot make joint estimated tax payments. H&r block free efile These individuals can take credit only for the estimated tax payments that he or she made. H&r block free efile If you and your spouse cannot make joint estimated tax payments, apply these rules to your separate estimated income. H&r block free efile Making joint or separate estimated tax payments will not affect your choice of filing a joint tax return or separate returns for 2014. H&r block free efile 2013 separate returns and 2014 joint return. H&r block free efile   If you plan to file a joint return with your spouse for 2014, but you filed separate returns for 2013, your 2013 tax is the total of the tax shown on your separate returns. H&r block free efile You filed a separate return if you filed as single, head of household, or married filing separately. H&r block free efile 2013 joint return and 2014 separate returns. H&r block free efile   If you plan to file a separate return for 2014, but you filed a joint return for 2013, your 2013 tax is your share of the tax on the joint return. H&r block free efile You file a separate return if you file as single, head of household, or married filing separately. H&r block free efile   To figure your share of the tax on a joint return, first figure the tax both you and your spouse would have paid had you filed separate returns for 2013 using the same filing status for 2014. H&r block free efile Then multiply the tax on the joint return by the following fraction. H&r block free efile      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. H&r block free efile Joe and Heather filed a joint return for 2013 showing taxable income of $48,500 and a tax of $6,386. H&r block free efile Of the $48,500 taxable income, $40,100 was Joe's and the rest was Heather's. H&r block free efile For 2014, they plan to file married filing separately. H&r block free efile Joe figures his share of the tax on the 2013 joint return as follows: Tax on $40,100 based on separate return $5,960 Tax on $8,400 based on separate return 843 Total $6,803 Joe's percentage of total ($5,960 ÷ $6,803) 87. H&r block free efile 6% Joe's share of tax on joint return  ($6,386 × 87. H&r block free efile 6%) $5,594 Special Rules There are special rules for farmers, fishermen, and certain higher income taxpayers. H&r block free efile Farmers and Fishermen If at least two-thirds of your gross income for 2013 or 2014 is from farming or fishing, substitute 662/3% for 90% in (2a) under General Rule , earlier.

H&r block free efile Expected Taxes and Credits— Lines 6–13c After you have figured your expected taxable income (line 5), follow the steps next to figure your expected taxes, credits, and total tax for 2014. H&r block free efile Most people will have entries for only a few of these steps. H&r block free efile However, you should check every step to be sure you do not overlook anything. H&r block free efile Step 1. H&r block free efile   Figure your expected income tax (line 6). H&r block free efile Generally, you will use the 2014 Tax Rate Schedules, later, to figure your expected income tax. H&r block free efile   However, see below for situations where you must use a different method to compute your estimated tax. H&r block free efile Tax on child's investment income. H&r block free efile   You must use a special method to figure tax on the income of the following children who have more than $2,000 of investment income. H&r block free efile Children under age 18 at the end of 2014. H&r block free efile The following children if their earned income is not more than half their support. H&r block free efile Children age 18 at the end of 2014. H&r block free efile Children who are full-time students over age 18 and under age 24 at the end of 2014. H&r block free efile See Publication 929, Tax Rules for Children and Dependents. H&r block free efile Although the ages and dollar amounts in the publication may be different in the 2014 revision, this reference will give you basic information for figuring the tax. H&r block free efile Tax on net capital gain. H&r block free efile   The regular income tax rates for individuals do not apply to a net capital gain. H&r block free efile Instead, your net capital gain is taxed at a lower maximum rate. H&r block free efile   The term “net capital gain” means the amount by which your net long-term capital gain for the year is more than your net short-term capital loss. H&r block free efile Tax on capital gain and qualified dividends. H&r block free efile If the amount on line 1 includes a net capital gain or qualified dividends, use Worksheet 2-7 to figure your tax. H&r block free efile Note. H&r block free efile For 2014, your capital gains and dividends rate will depend on your income. H&r block free efile Tax if excluding foreign earned income or excluding or deducting foreign housing. H&r block free efile If you expect to claim the foreign earned income exclusion or the housing exclusion or deduction on Form 2555 or Form 2555-EZ, use Worksheet 2-8 to figure your estimated tax. H&r block free efile Step 2. H&r block free efile   Total your expected taxes (line 8). H&r block free efile Include on line 8 the sum of the following. H&r block free efile Your tax on line 6. H&r block free efile Your expected alternative minimum tax (AMT) from Form 6251, or included on Form 1040A. H&r block free efile Your expected additional taxes from Form 8814, Parents' Election To Report Child's Interest and Dividends, and Form 4972, Tax on Lump-Sum Distributions. H&r block free efile Any recapture of education credits. H&r block free efile Step 3. H&r block free efile   Subtract your expected credits (line 9). H&r block free efile If you are using your 2013 return as a guide and filed Form 1040, your total credits for 2013 were shown on line 54. H&r block free efile If you filed Form 1040A, your total credits for 2013 were on line 34. H&r block free efile   If your credits on line 9 are more than your taxes on line 8, enter “-0-” on line 10 and go to Step 4. H&r block free efile Step 4. H&r block free efile   Add your expected self-employment tax (line 11). H&r block free efile You already should have figured your self-employment tax (see Self-employed under Expected AGI—Line 1, earlier). H&r block free efile Step 5. H&r block free efile   Add your expected other taxes (line 12). H&r block free efile   Other taxes include the following. H&r block free efile Additional tax on early distributions from: An IRA or other qualified retirement plan, A tax-sheltered annuity, or A modified endowment contract entered into after June 20, 1988. H&r block free efile Household employment taxes if: You will have federal income tax withheld from wages, pensions, annuities, gambling winnings, or other income, or You would be required to make estimated tax payments even if you did not include household employment taxes when figuring your estimated tax. H&r block free efile Amounts written on Form 1040 on the line for “other taxes” (line 60 on the 2013 Form 1040).

H&r block free efile   To figure your expected fuel tax credit, do not include fuel tax for the first three quarters of the year that you expect to have refunded to you. H&r block free efile   The result of steps 1 through 6 is your total estimated tax for 2014 (line 13c). H&r block free efile Required Annual Payment— Line 14c On lines 14a through 14c, figure the total amount you must pay for 2014, through withholding and estimated tax payments, to avoid paying a penalty. H&r block free efile General rule. H&r block free efile   The total amount you must pay is the smaller of: 90% of your total expected tax for 2014, or 100% of the total tax shown on your 2013 return. H&r block free efile Your 2013 tax return must cover all 12 months. H&r block free efile Special rules. H&r block free efile   There are special rules for higher income taxpayers and for farmers and fishermen. H&r block free efile Higher income taxpayers. H&r block free efile   If your AGI for 2013 was more than $150,000 ($75,000 if your filing status for 2014 is married filing separately), substitute 110% for 100% in (2) above. H&r block free efile This rule does not apply to farmers and fishermen. H&r block free efile For 2013, AGI is the amount shown on Form 1040, line 37; Form 1040A, line 21; and Form 1040EZ, line 4. H&r block free efile Example. H&r block free efile   Jeremy Martin's total tax on his 2013 return was $42,581, and his expected tax for 2014 is $71,253. H&r block free efile His 2013 AGI was $180,000. H&r block free efile Because Jeremy had more than $150,000 of AGI in 2013, he figures his required annual payment as follows. H&r block free efile He determines that 90% of his expected tax for 2014 is $64,128 (. H&r block free efile 90 × $71,253). H&r block free efile Next, he determines that 110% of the tax shown on his 2013 return is $46,839 (1. H&r block free efile 10 x $42,581). H&r block free efile Finally, he determines that his required annual payment is $46,839, the smaller of the two. H&r block free efile Farmers and fishermen. H&r block free efile   If at least two-thirds of your gross income for 2013 or 2014 is from farming or fishing, your required annual payment is the smaller of: 662/3% (.

H&r block free efile When To Pay Estimated Tax For estimated tax purposes, the year is divided into four payment periods. H&r block free efile Each period has a specific payment due date. H&r block free efile If you do not pay enough tax by the due date of each of the payment periods, you may be charged a penalty even if you are due a refund when you file your income tax return.

H&r block free efile Saturday, Sunday, holiday rule. H&r block free efile   If the due date for an estimated tax payment falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the payment will be on time if you make it on the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or a holiday. H&r block free efile January payment. H&r block free efile   If you file your 2014 Form 1040 or Form 1040A by February 2, 2015, and pay the rest of the tax you owe, you do not need to make the payment due on January 15, 2015. H&r block free efile Example. H&r block free efile Janet Adams does not pay any estimated tax for 2014. H&r block free efile She files her 2014 income tax return and pays the balance due shown on her return on January 26, 2015. H&r block free efile Janet's estimated tax for the fourth payment period is considered to have been paid on time. H&r block free efile However, she may owe a penalty for not making the first three estimated tax payments, if required. H&r block free efile Any penalty for not making those payments will be figured up to January 26, 2015. H&r block free efile Fiscal year taxpayers. H&r block free efile   If your tax year does not start on January 1, your payment due dates are: The 15th day of the 4th month of your fiscal year, The 15th day of the 6th month of your fiscal year, The 15th day of the 9th month of your fiscal year, and The 15th day of the 1st month after the end of your fiscal year. H&r block free efile   You do not have to make the last payment listed above if you file your income tax return by the last day of the first month after the end of your fiscal year and pay all the tax you owe with your return. H&r block free efile When To Start You do not have to make estimated tax payments until you have income on which you will owe income tax. H&r block free efile If you have income subject to estimated tax during the first payment period, you must make your first payment by the due date for the first payment period. H&r block free efile You have several options when paying estimated taxes. H&r block free efile You can: apply an overpayment from the previous tax year, pay all your estimated tax by the due date of your first payment, or pay it in installments. H&r block free efile If you choose to pay in installments, make your first payment by the due date for the first payment period. H&r block free efile Make your remaining installment payments by the due dates for the later periods. H&r block free efile To avoid any estimated tax penalties, all installments must be paid by their due date and for the required amount. H&r block free efile No income subject to estimated tax during first period. H&r block free efile   If you do not have income subject to estimated tax until a later payment period, you must make your first payment by the due date for that period. H&r block free efile You can pay your entire estimated tax by the due date for that period or you can pay it in installments by the due date for that period and the due dates for the remaining periods. H&r block free efile Table 2-1 shows the dates for making installment payments. H&r block free efile    Table 2-1.

H&r block free efile If you file your 2014 Form 1040 by March 2, 2015, and pay all the tax you owe at that time, you do not need to make an estimated tax payment. H&r block free efile Fiscal year farmers and fishermen. H&r block free efile   If you are a farmer or fisherman, but your tax year does not start on January 1, you can either: Pay all your estimated tax by the 15th day after the end of your tax year, or File your return and pay all the tax you owe by the 1st day of the 3rd month after the end of your tax year. H&r block free efile How To Figure Each Payment After you have figured your total estimated tax, figure how much you must pay by the due date of each payment period. H&r block free efile You should pay enough by each due date to avoid a penalty for that period. H&r block free efile If you do not pay enough during any payment period, you may be charged a penalty even if you are due a refund when you file your tax return. H&r block free efile The penalty is discussed in chapter 4. H&r block free efile Regular Installment Method If your first estimated tax payment is due April 15, 2014, you can figure your required payment for each period by dividing your annual estimated tax due (line 16a of the 2014 Estimated Tax Worksheet (Worksheet 2-1)) by 4. H&r block free efile Enter this amount on line 17. H&r block free efile However, use this method only if your income is basically the same throughout the year. H&r block free efile Change in estimated tax. H&r block free efile   After you make an estimated tax payment, changes in your income, adjustments, deductions, credits, or exemptions may make it necessary for you to refigure your estimated tax. H&r block free efile Pay the unpaid balance of your amended estimated tax by the next payment due date after the change or in installments by that date and the due dates for the remaining payment periods.

H&r block free efile If you figure your payments using the regular installment method and later refigure your payments because of an increase in income, you may be charged a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax for the period(s) before you changed your payments. H&r block free efile To see how you may be able to avoid or reduce this penalty, see Annualized Income Installment Method (Schedule AI) in chapter 4. H&r block free efile Annualized Income Installment Method If you do not receive your income evenly throughout the year (for example, your income from a repair shop you operate is much larger in the summer than it is during the rest of the year), your required estimated tax payment for one or more periods may be less than the amount figured using the regular installment method. H&r block free efile The annualized income installment method annualizes your tax at the end of each period based on a reasonable estimate of your income, deductions, and other items relating to events that occurred from the beginning of the tax year through the end of the period. H&r block free efile To see whether you can pay less for any period, complete the 2014 Annualized Estimated Tax Worksheet (Worksheet 2-9).

H&r block free efile On Form 1040, or Form 1040A, enter the amount you want credited to your estimated tax rather than refunded. H&r block free efile Take the amount you have credited into account when figuring your estimated tax payments.

H&r block free efile You also cannot use that overpayment in any other way. H&r block free efile Example.

H&r block free efile It turned out that she owed $250 more in tax than she had thought. H&r block free efile This reduced her 2013 overpayment from $750 to $500. H&r block free efile Because the $750 had already been applied to her 2014 estimated tax or refunded to her, the IRS billed her for the additional $250 she owed, plus penalties and interest. H&r block free efile Kathleen could not use any of the $600 she had credited to her 2014 estimated tax to pay this bill.
