Will your stipend be reported on a 1099Misc? If so you will receive that form by the end of January. You say they suggested that you pay estimated tax ahead of time, but now it is 2020 and it sounds like you did not do so. If you want to make an estimated payment this late you can do it on the IRS site, or just pay the tax you owe when you file your 2019 tax return.
When was this? Did you send in the 1040ES with a payment and need to enter it into your tax return?
You can type estimates paid in the search box at the top of your return and click Find and it will give you a link to Jump To it.
To enter Federal or State Estimated Taxes Paid, including a state estimated payment made in Jan 2019 for 2018 (or Jan 2020 for 2019), go to
Federal or Personal (for Home & Business version)
Deductions and Credits
Then scroll way down to Estimates and Other Taxes Paid
Estimated Taxes - click the Start or Update button
Estimated payments go on 1040 Schedule 3 line 8
And show up on 1040 line 18d
Thank you for your reply!! The agency said they won't provide any kind of form for us to report the tax, so I don't think my stipend will be reported on a 1099Misc. I started receiving my first stipend paycheck only in Nov, 2019, so that's why I didn't have the chance to pay the estimated payment early this year. So in my situation, could I just file the tax return by April15th 2020, as you suggested?
Another question is: should I still pay the estimated tax payment for 2020 tax since I will be continuously receiving stipend in 2020 as well? If so, how can I use Turbotax to calculate the estimated payment?
When you are done filling out your 2019 return Turbo Tax might automatically give you the estimate forms or you can go though that section to prepare them.
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.

VolvoGirl, thank you for your reply. I haven't sent any 1040ES yet since I only received my first stipend in Nov, 2019. But thank you so much for explaining these steps, it is really helpful information. Thanks a lot.
