Yes.  With those amounts you should be.  If you owe too much on your tax return  you will get hit with an underpayment Penalty.  And you certainly don't want to owe it all at once.

 

You must make quarterly estimated tax payments for the current tax year if both of the following apply:

- 1. You expect to owe at least $1,000 in tax for the current tax year, after subtracting your withholding and credits.

 

- 2. You expect your withholding and credits to be less than the smaller of:

    90% of the tax to be shown on your current year’s tax return, or

  100% of the tax shown on your prior year’s tax return. (Your prior year tax return must cover all 12 months).

 

Here are the blank Estimates and instructions…..
