The U.S. Internal Revenue Service has issued a reminder to taxpayers who pay estimated taxes that they have until June 15 to pay their estimated tax payment for the second quarter of tax year 2021 without incurring a penalty.

Estimated tax is the method used to pay tax on income that isn’t subject to withholding, including income from self-employment, interest, dividends, rent, gains from the sale of assets, prizes, and awards. Taxpayers may also have to pay estimated tax if the amount of income tax withheld from a salary, pension, or from other income isn’t sufficient to cover their entire tax liability.

Additional information regarding who needs to make Federal and Wisconsin estimated tax payments and how to make such payments can be found here.

For questions or further information relating to estimated tax payments, please contact Attorney Britany E. Morrison.
