How do I prepare my September Self-Employment Tax Quarterly on Turbo Tax? All I can see are my Tax Returns from 2020.

2021 is my first year of Freelance work.  Every other year I have been on W4.

To prepare estimates for next year you start with your current return, but be careful not to change anything.  If you can't get back into your return, Click on Add a State to let you back into your retun.

 

You can just type W4 in the search box at the top of your return , click on Find. Then Click on Jump To and it will take you to the estimated tax payments section. Say no to changing your W-4 and the next screen will start the estimated taxes section.

 

Or Go to….

Federal Taxes or Personal (Deskop H&B)

Form W-4 and Estimated Taxes - Click the Start or Update button

 

See,

Here are the blank Estimates and instructions…..

The 1040ES quarterly estimates are due April 15,  June 15, Sept 15 and Jan 18, 2022.  Your state will also have their own estimate forms.

 

Or you can pay directly on the IRS website https://www.irs.gov/payments

Be sure to pick the right kind of payment and year.....2021 Estimate

Did you make the first two quarterly payments?  To just estimate the remaining quarters put in that you paid $1 for the missed quarters so it will only calculate the remaining quarters.
