Www myfreetaxes com Introduction If you did not pay enough tax, either through withholding or by making timely estimated tax payments, you will have underpaid your estimated tax and may have to pay a penalty. Www myfreetaxes com You may understand this chapter better if you can refer to a copy of your latest federal income tax return. Www myfreetaxes com No penalty. Www myfreetaxes com   Generally, you will not have to pay a penalty for 2013 if any of the following apply. Www myfreetaxes com The total of your withholding and timely estimated tax payments was at least as much as your 2012 tax. Www myfreetaxes com (See Special rules for certain individuals for higher income taxpayers and farmers and fishermen. Www myfreetaxes com ) The tax balance due on your 2013 return is no more than 10% of your total 2013 tax, and you paid all required estimated tax payments on time. Www myfreetaxes com Your total tax for 2013 (defined later) minus your withholding is less than $1,000. Www myfreetaxes com You did not have a tax liability for 2012. Www myfreetaxes com You did not have any withholding taxes and your current year tax (less any household employment taxes) is less than $1,000. Www myfreetaxes com IRS can figure the penalty for you. Www myfreetaxes com   If you think you owe the penalty, but you do not want to figure it yourself when you file your tax return, you may not have to. Www myfreetaxes com Generally, the IRS will figure the penalty for you and send you a bill. Www myfreetaxes com   You only need to figure your penalty in the following three situations. Www myfreetaxes com You are requesting a waiver of part, but not all, of the penalty. Www myfreetaxes com You are using the annualized income installment method to figure the penalty. Www myfreetaxes com You are treating the federal income tax withheld from your income as paid on the dates actually withheld. Www myfreetaxes com However, if these situations do not apply to you, and you think you can lower or eliminate your penalty, complete Form 2210 or Form 2210-F and attach it to your return. Www myfreetaxes com See Form 2210 , later. Www myfreetaxes com Topics - This chapter discusses: The general rule for the underpayment penalty, Special rules for certain individuals, Exceptions to the underpayment penalty, How to figure your underpayment and the amount of your penalty on Form 2210, and How to ask the IRS to waive the penalty. Www myfreetaxes com Useful Items - You may want to see: Form (and Instructions) 2210 Underpayment of Estimated Tax by Individuals, Estates, and Trusts 2210-F Underpayment of Estimated Tax by Farmers and Fishermen See chapter 5 for information about getting these forms. Www myfreetaxes com General Rule In general, you may owe a penalty for 2013 if the total of your withholding and timely estimated tax payments did not equal at least the smaller of: 90% of your 2013 tax, or 100% of your 2012 tax. Www myfreetaxes com (Your 2012 tax return must cover a 12-month period. Www myfreetaxes com ) Your 2013 tax, for this purpose, is defined under Total tax for 2013 , later. Www myfreetaxes com Special rules for certain individuals. Www myfreetaxes com   There are special rules for farmers and fishermen and certain higher income taxpayers. Www myfreetaxes com Farmers and fishermen. Www myfreetaxes com   If at least two-thirds of your gross income for 2012 or 2013 is from farming or fishing, substitute  662/3% for 90% in (1) above. Www myfreetaxes com   See Farmers and Fishermen , later. Www myfreetaxes com Higher income taxpayers. Www myfreetaxes com   If your AGI for 2012 was more than $150,000 ($75,000 if your 2013 filing status is married filing a separate return), substitute 110% for 100% in (2) under General Rule . Www myfreetaxes com This rule does not apply to farmers or fishermen. Www myfreetaxes com   For 2012, AGI is the amount shown on Form 1040, line 37; Form 1040A, line 21; and Form 1040EZ, line 4. Www myfreetaxes com Penalty figured separately for each period. Www myfreetaxes com   Because the penalty is figured separately for each payment period, you may owe a penalty for an earlier payment period even if you later paid enough to make up the underpayment. Www myfreetaxes com This is true even if you are due a refund when you file your income tax return. Www myfreetaxes com Example. Www myfreetaxes com You did not make estimated tax payments for 2013 because you thought you had enough tax withheld from your wages. Www myfreetaxes com Early in January 2014, you made an estimate of your total 2013 tax. Www myfreetaxes com Then you realized that your withholding was $2,000 less than the amount needed to avoid a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Www myfreetaxes com On January 10, you made an estimated tax payment of $3,000, which is the difference between your withholding and your estimate of your total tax. Www myfreetaxes com Your final return shows your total tax to be $50 less than your estimate, so you are due a refund. Www myfreetaxes com You do not owe a penalty for your payment due January 15, 2014. Www myfreetaxes com However, you may owe a penalty through January 10, 2014, the day you made the $3,000 payment, for your underpayments for the earlier payment periods. Www myfreetaxes com Minimum required each period. Www myfreetaxes com   You will owe a penalty for any 2013 payment period for which your estimated tax payment plus your withholding for the period and overpayments applied from previous periods was less than the smaller of: 22. Www myfreetaxes com 5% of your 2013 tax, or 25% of your 2012 tax. Www myfreetaxes com (Your 2012 tax return must cover a 12-month period. Www myfreetaxes com ) Minimum required for higher income taxpayers. Www myfreetaxes com   If you are subject to the rule for higher income taxpayers, discussed above, substitute 27. Www myfreetaxes com 5% for 25% in (2) under General Rule . Www myfreetaxes com When penalty is charged. Www myfreetaxes com   If you miss a payment or you paid less than the minimum required in a period, you may be charged an underpayment penalty from the date the amount was due to the date the payment is made. Www myfreetaxes com If a payment is mailed, the date of the U. Www myfreetaxes com S. Www myfreetaxes com postmark is considered the date of payment. Www myfreetaxes com   If a payment is made electronically, the date the payment is shown on your payment account (checking, savings, etc. Www myfreetaxes com ) is considered to be the date of payment. Www myfreetaxes com Estate or trust payments of estimated tax. Www myfreetaxes com   If you have estimated taxes credited to you from an estate or trust (Schedule K-1 (Form 1041)), treat the payment as made by you on January 15, 2014. Www myfreetaxes com Amended returns. Www myfreetaxes com    If you file an amended return by the due date of your original return, use the tax shown on your amended return to figure your required estimated tax payments. Www myfreetaxes com If you file an amended return after the due date of the original return, use the tax shown on the original return. Www myfreetaxes com   However, if you and your spouse file a joint return after the due date to replace separate returns you originally filed by the due date, use the tax shown on the joint return to figure your required estimated tax payments. Www myfreetaxes com This rule applies only if both original separate returns were filed on time. Www myfreetaxes com 2012 separate returns and 2013 joint return. Www myfreetaxes com    If you file a joint return with your spouse for 2013, but you filed separate returns for 2012, your 2012 tax is the total of the tax shown on your separate returns. Www myfreetaxes com You filed a separate return if you filed as single, head of household, or married filing separately. Www myfreetaxes com 2012 joint return and 2013 separate returns. Www myfreetaxes com    If you file a separate return for 2013, but you filed a joint return with your spouse for 2012, your 2012 tax is your share of the tax on the joint return. Www myfreetaxes com You are filing a separate return if you file as single, head of household, or married filing separately. Www myfreetaxes com   To figure your share of the taxes on a joint return, first figure the tax both you and your spouse would have paid had you filed separate returns for 2012 using the same filing status as for 2013. Www myfreetaxes com Then multiply the tax on the joint return by the following fraction. Www myfreetaxes com   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. Www myfreetaxes com Lisa and Paul filed a joint return for 2012 showing taxable income of $49,000 and a tax of $6,484. Www myfreetaxes com Of the $49,000 taxable income, $41,000 was Lisa's and the rest was Paul's. Www myfreetaxes com For 2013, they file married filing separately. Www myfreetaxes com Lisa figures her share of the tax on the 2012 joint return as follows. Www myfreetaxes com 2012 tax on $41,000 based on a separate return $ 6,286 2012 tax on $8,000 based on a  separate return 803 Total $ 7,089 Lisa's percentage of total tax  ($6,286 ÷ $ 7,089) 88. Www myfreetaxes com 67% Lisa's part of tax on joint return ($6,484 × 88. Www myfreetaxes com 67%) $ 5,749 Form 2210. Www myfreetaxes com   In most cases, you do not need to file Form 2210. Www myfreetaxes com The IRS will figure the penalty for you and send you a bill. Www myfreetaxes com If you want us to figure the penalty for you, leave the penalty line on your return blank. Www myfreetaxes com Do not file Form 2210. Www myfreetaxes com   To determine if you should file Form 2210, see Part II of Form 2210. Www myfreetaxes com If you decide to figure your penalty, complete Part I, Part II, and either Part III or Part IV of the form and the Penalty Worksheet in the Instructions for Form 2210. Www myfreetaxes com If you use Form 2210, you cannot file Form 1040EZ. Www myfreetaxes com   On Form 1040, enter the amount of your penalty on line 77. Www myfreetaxes com If you owe tax on line 76, add the penalty to your tax due and show your total payment on line 76. Www myfreetaxes com If you are due a refund, subtract the penalty from the overpayment and enter the result on line 73. Www myfreetaxes com   On Form 1040A, enter the amount of your penalty on line 46. Www myfreetaxes com If you owe tax on line 45, add the penalty to your tax due and show your total payment on line 45. Www myfreetaxes com If you are due a refund, subtract the penalty from the overpayment and enter the result on line 42. Www myfreetaxes com Lowering or eliminating the penalty. Www myfreetaxes com    You may be able to lower or eliminate your penalty if you file Form 2210. Www myfreetaxes com You must file Form 2210 with your return if any of the following applies. Www myfreetaxes com You request a waiver. Www myfreetaxes com See Waiver of Penalty , later. Www myfreetaxes com You use the annualized income installment method. Www myfreetaxes com See the explanation of this method under Annualized Income Installment Method (Schedule AI) . Www myfreetaxes com You use your actual withholding for each payment period for estimated tax purposes. Www myfreetaxes com See Actual withholding method under Figuring Your Underpayment (Part IV, Section A). Www myfreetaxes com You base any of your required installments on the tax shown on your 2012 return and you filed or are filing a joint return for either 2012 or 2013, but not for both years. Www myfreetaxes com Exceptions Generally, you do not have to pay an underpayment penalty if either: Your total tax is less than $1,000, or You had no tax liability last year. Www myfreetaxes com Less Than $1,000 Due You do not owe a penalty if the total tax shown on your return minus the amount you paid through withholding (including excess social security and tier 1 railroad retirement (RRTA) tax withholding) is less than $1,000. Www myfreetaxes com Total tax for 2013. Www myfreetaxes com   For 2013, your total tax on Form 1040 is the amount on line 61 reduced by the following. Www myfreetaxes com    Unreported social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax from Forms 4137 or 8919 (line 57). Www myfreetaxes com Any tax included on line 58 for excess contributions to IRAs, Archer MSAs, Coverdell education savings accounts, and health savings accounts, or any tax on excess accumulations in qualified retirement plans. Www myfreetaxes com The following write-ins on line 60: Uncollected social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax on tips or group-term life insurance, Tax on excess golden parachute payments, Excise tax on insider stock compensation from an expatriated corporation, Look-back interest due under section 167(g), Look-back interest due under section 460(b), Recapture of federal mortgage subsidy, and Additional tax on advance payments of health coverage tax credit when not eligible. Www myfreetaxes com Any refundable credit amounts listed on lines 64a, 65, 66, 70, and any credit from Form 8885 included on line 71. Www myfreetaxes com   If you filed Form 1040A, your 2013 total tax is the amount on line 35 reduced by any refundable credits on lines 38a, 39, and 40. Www myfreetaxes com   If you filed Form 1040EZ, your 2013 total tax is the amount on line 10 reduced by the amount on line 8a. Www myfreetaxes com Note. Www myfreetaxes com When figuring the amount on line 60, include household employment taxes only if you had federal income tax withheld from your income or you would owe the penalty even if you did not include those taxes. Www myfreetaxes com Paid through withholding. Www myfreetaxes com    For 2013, the amount you paid through withholding on Form 1040 is the amount on line 62 plus any excess social security or tier 1 RRTA tax withholding on line 69. Www myfreetaxes com Add to that any write-in amount on line 72 identified as “Form 8689. Www myfreetaxes com ” On Form 1040A, the amount you paid through withholding is the amount on line 36 plus any excess social security or tier 1 RRTA tax withholding included on line 41. Www myfreetaxes com On Form 1040EZ, it is the amount on line 7. Www myfreetaxes com No Tax Liability Last Year You do not owe a penalty if you had no tax liability last year and you were a U. Www myfreetaxes com S. Www myfreetaxes com citizen or resident for the whole year. Www myfreetaxes com For this rule to apply, your tax year must have included all 12 months of the year. Www myfreetaxes com You had no tax liability for 2012 if your total tax was zero or you were not required to file an income tax return. Www myfreetaxes com Example. Www myfreetaxes com Ray, who is single and 22 years old, was unemployed for a few months during 2012. Www myfreetaxes com He earned $6,700 in wages before he was laid off, and he received $1,400 in unemployment compensation afterwards. Www myfreetaxes com He had no other income. Www myfreetaxes com Even though he had gross income of $8,100, he did not have to pay income tax because his gross income was less than the filing requirement for a single person under age 65 ($9,750 for 2012). Www myfreetaxes com He filed a return only to have his withheld income tax refunded to him. Www myfreetaxes com In 2013, Ray began regular work as an independent contractor. Www myfreetaxes com Ray made no estimated tax payments in 2013. Www myfreetaxes com Even though he did owe tax at the end of the year, Ray does not owe the underpayment penalty for 2013 because he had no tax liability in 2012. Www myfreetaxes com Total tax for 2012. Www myfreetaxes com   For 2012, your total tax on Form 1040 is the amount on line 61 reduced by the following. Www myfreetaxes com    Unreported social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax from Forms 4137 or 8919 (line 57). Www myfreetaxes com Any tax included on line 58 for excess contributions to IRAs, Archer MSAs, Coverdell education savings accounts, and health savings accounts, or any tax on excess accumulations in qualified retirement plans. Www myfreetaxes com The following write-ins on line 60: Uncollected social security and Medicare tax or RRTA tax on tips or group-term life insurance, Tax on excess golden parachute payments, Excise tax on insider stock compensation from an expatriated corporation, Look-back interest due under section 167(g), Look-back interest due under section 460(b), Recapture of federal mortgage subsidy, and Additional tax on advance payments of health coverage tax credit when not eligible. Www myfreetaxes com Any refundable credit amounts listed on lines 64a, 65, 66, 70, and credits from Forms 8801 (line 27 only), and 8885 included on line 71. Www myfreetaxes com   If you filed Form 1040A, your 2012 total tax is the amount on line 35 reduced by any refundable credits on lines 38a, 39, and 40. Www myfreetaxes com   If you filed Form 1040EZ, your 2012 total tax is the amount on line 11 reduced by the amount on line 8a. Www myfreetaxes com Figuring Your Required Annual Payment (Part I) Figure your required annual payment in Part I of Form 2210, following the line-by-line instructions. Www myfreetaxes com If you rounded the entries on your tax return to whole dollars, you can round on Form 2210. Www myfreetaxes com Example. Www myfreetaxes com The tax on Lori Lane's 2012 return was $12,400. Www myfreetaxes com Her AGI was not more than $150,000 for either 2012 or 2013. Www myfreetaxes com The tax on her 2013 return (Form 1040, line 55) is $13,044. Www myfreetaxes com Line 56 (self-employment tax) is $8,902. Www myfreetaxes com Her 2013 total tax is $21,946. Www myfreetaxes com For 2013, Lori had $1,600 income tax withheld and made four equal estimated tax payments ($1,000 each). Www myfreetaxes com 90% of her 2013 tax is $19,751. Www myfreetaxes com Because she paid less than her 2012 tax ($12,400) and less than 90% of her 2013 tax ($19,751), and does not meet an exception, Lori knows that she owes a penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Www myfreetaxes com The IRS will figure the penalty for Lori, but she decides to figure it herself on Form 2210 and pay it with her taxes when she files her tax return. Www myfreetaxes com Lori's required annual payment is $12,400 (100% of 2012 tax) because that is smaller than 90% of her 2013 tax. Www myfreetaxes com Different 2012 filing status. Www myfreetaxes com    If you file a separate return for 2013, but you filed a joint return with your spouse for 2012, see 2012 joint return and 2013 separate returns , earlier, to figure the amount to enter as your 2012 tax on line 8 of Form 2210. Www myfreetaxes com Short Method for Figuring the Penalty (Part III) You may be able to use the short method in Part III of Form 2210 to figure your penalty for underpayment of estimated tax. Www myfreetaxes com If you qualify to use this method, it will result in the same penalty amount as the regular method. Www myfreetaxes com However, either the annualized income installment method or the actual withholding method, explained later, may result in a smaller penalty. Www myfreetaxes com You can use the short method only if you meet one of the following requirements. Www myfreetaxes com You made no estimated tax payments for 2013 (it does not matter whether you had income tax withholding). Www myfreetaxes com You paid the same amount of estimated tax on each of the four payment due dates. Www myfreetaxes com If you do not meet either requirement, figure your penalty using the regular method in Part IV of Form 2210 and the Penalty Worksheet in the instructions. Www myfreetaxes com Note. Www myfreetaxes com If any payment was made before the due date, you can use the short method, but the penalty may be less if you use the regular method. Www myfreetaxes com However, if the payment was only a few days early, the difference is likely to be small. Www myfreetaxes com You cannot use the short method if any of the following apply. Www myfreetaxes com You made any estimated tax payments late. Www myfreetaxes com You checked box C or D in Part II of Form 2210. Www myfreetaxes com You are filing Form 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ and you did not receive wages as an employee subject to U. Www myfreetaxes com S. Www myfreetaxes com income tax withholding. Www myfreetaxes com If you use the short method, you cannot use the annualized income installment method to figure your underpayment for each payment period. Www myfreetaxes com Also, you cannot use your actual withholding during each period to figure your payments for each period.

Www myfreetaxes com For example, if you had an underpayment for the first payment period, list your payments after April 15, 2013. Www myfreetaxes com You can use the table in the Form 2210 instructions to make your list. Www myfreetaxes com Follow those instructions for listing income tax withheld and payments made with your return. Www myfreetaxes com Use the list to determine when each underpayment was paid. Www myfreetaxes com   If you mail your estimated tax payments, use the date of the U. Www myfreetaxes com S. Www myfreetaxes com postmark as the date of payment. Www myfreetaxes com Line 1b. Www myfreetaxes com   Apply the payments listed to underpayment balance in the first column until it is fully paid. Www myfreetaxes com Apply payments in the order made. Www myfreetaxes com Figuring the penalty. Www myfreetaxes com   If an underpayment was paid in two or more payments on different dates, you must figure the penalty separately for each payment.

Www myfreetaxes com Find the number for the date the payment was due by going across to the column of the month the payment was due and moving down the column to the due date. Www myfreetaxes com In the same manner, find the number for the date the payment was made. Www myfreetaxes com Subtract the due date “number” from the payment date “number. Www myfreetaxes com ”   For example, if a payment was due on June 15 (61), but was not paid until September 1 (139), the payment was 78 (139 – 61) days late. Www myfreetaxes com Table 4-1. Www myfreetaxes com Calendar To Determine the Number of Days a Payment Is Late Instructions. Www myfreetaxes com Use this table with Form 2210 if you are completing Part IV, Section B. Www myfreetaxes com First, find the number for the payment due date by going across to the column of the month the payment was due and moving down the column to the due date.
