The IRS is launching a special campaign starting today to help specific groups of taxpayers avoid an estimated tax penalty by paying the right amount of tax all year. We’re sharing information to help wage earners, retirees, small business owners and self-employed individuals meet the upcoming Sept. 17 deadline for quarterly estimated tax payments. We’ll also encourage these taxpayers to perform a Paycheck Checkup.
The IRS is holding a webinar on estimated taxes and withholding on Sept. 11, 2018 for tax professionals and industry partners.
