Hello, I’ve already filed my 2018 taxes. In January of 2019 I started a single member LLC and will need to pay estimated tax payments. How can i do this?

On each estimated payment do I enter only what I made in that quarter or what I think I’ll make in the full year?


Basically, if you send the IRS 20% of your gross business income each quarter, then come tax filing time you'll be fine. Now if you have reason to believe your total household income from all sources will exceed $200,000, then you'll want to send the IRS at least 25% of your gross business income each quarter.

"do I enter only what I made in that quarter "

Yes. But it's a whole lot easier and simpler to just pay your quarterly taxes online at http://www.irs.gov/payments and remember to "PRINT" "YOUR" "RECEIPT" when done and file it with your business paperwork.

Also, if your state taxes personal income you'll need to pay your state quarterly taxes too. You'll have to check on your state's website to see what payment options are available to you. Not all states have the ability to pay your quarterly taxes online.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
