Not necessarily. Did you wind up owing $1000 or more for 2016? If so, it's possible that you would need to make estimated tax payments for 2017 in order to avoid a penalty next year. If your situation is the same for 2017 as it was for 2016, you should consider making these payments with the 1040ES vouchers.

If you respond here with specifics about your situation I may be able to give you more detailed advice.

Is there an amount printed on them for you to pay? Did you pay estimated tax last year? If not, ignore them even if they did print out.

In the situation you describe, there is no reason for you to pay estimated taxes. As long as your withholding and income remain the same you can ignore the 1040ES. If for some reason your income goes up or your situation changes, you would change your W-4 with your employer, not start paying estimated taxes.

It's likely that it is an error. I don't know if at one point in the preparation of your return you looked at the estimated tax section, but it's possible that generated the vouchers. But again, if your income and withholding is the same or close to the same  every year and nothing will change this year as far as you know, then the vouchers aren't necessary, and you should ignore them, regardless of why they were generated by the program.
