The Internal Revenue Service reminds taxpayers who pay estimated taxes that they have until January 17th to make their payment for the fourth quarter of tax year 2022 without penalty.

You may send estimated tax payments with Form 1040-ES by mail or you can pay online, by phone, or from your mobile device using the IRS2Go app.

If you pay online from your bank account, you can make payments up to 8 p.m. Eastern time on the due date. If you use a credit or a debit card, you can make payments up to midnight on the due date. You can also make your estimated tax payments through your online account, where you can see your payment history and other tax records. Visit IRS.gov/payments to view all the options.

If you mail your estimated tax payment and the date of the U.S. postmark is on or before the due date, the IRS will generally consider the payment to be on time. However, delays by the IRS and State Revenue Departments in processing checks from taxpayers for the payment of income taxes is increasing, resulting in automated tax notices requesting payment of the unpaid income tax with interest and penalties. Unprocessed checks can also be lost by the IRS or state agency. Learn more about the benefits of paying online HERE.
