First quarter 2023 estimated tax payment due. Making estimated tax payments means that you need to estimate how much income youâre likely to make for the year and determine how much you will owe to the IRS for income taxes. You can use IRS Form 1040-ES to calculate how much tax liability you'll have for the year. IRS Publication 505 contains all the rules and details you might need to know about how to calculate this amount. If you overestimated how much tax liability youâd owe for a year and are due a refund, you can choose to receive that money now or apply the overage to the following yearâs quarterly tax payments.

Second quarter 2023 estimated tax payment due. Despite the IRS referring to these payments as quarterly estimated taxes, the due dates donât necessarily fall within âquartersâ nor do they each represent three months of tax payments. They represent an equal quarterly share of your estimated income tax liability paid at uneven intervals. The first payment occurs 3 and a half months into the year. The second payment is five and a half months; the third payment is eight and a half months, and the fourth payment is due 12 and a half months after the year starts. ( intuit.com )
