Yes, if your employer is treating you as an independent contractor and not withholding federal (or state, if applicable) income taxes.

Follow the steps below to access the estimated tax section of TurboTax:

  • Log into your account
  • Hit Take Me to My Return;
  • Click Federal Taxes;
  • Click Other Tax Situations;
