Which option to select while paying advance taxes in IRS

I am a resident of Canada, moved here from the USA last year. So my tax filing deadline is June 2022. After calculating my taxes for the last year, it was determined that I owe a few thousand dollars to IRS. So my Turbo Tax consultant advised me to pay the taxes on the IRS website, after which she will e-file my return.

 

I went to https://directpay.irs.gov/directpay/payment?execution=e1s1 and I am confused about which option to select from the drop-down for "Reason for Payment". I am confused between "Estimated Tax" and "Proposed Tax Assessment".  Can anyone please assist?

@rammy 

if your "rep" wants to enter your payment amount on your Tax Return, that is wrong.

if you owe taxes, your 1040 will show "amount you owe".

you just pay it on the payments page.

So to pay that, should I select options like this on IRS Payment page?

Yes

The only caution I have is ---

I would e-File first and see that the filing is ACCEPTED, then pay.

Until filed, that amount is subject to change.
