Secrets To Understanding and Managing Your Estimated Tax Payments



As we approach the second half of the year, I wanted to take a moment to discuss the importance of estimated tax payments and how they can impact you.


Why Estimated Tax Payments Matter

Estimated tax payments help you manage your tax liability throughout the year, avoiding large payments and penalties during tax season. They are especially crucial for business owners, self-employed individuals, and folks that have substantial unearned income (interest, dividends, rent) with no taxes withheld.


Quick Rule of Thumb


A good rule of thumb I’ve found is to pay:


– 20% of your profit/unearned income as estimated tax to the federal government


– 10% of your profit/unearned income as estimated tax to the state


In-Depth Guidance


To help you navigate this, I’ve created three detailed video lessons:

– **Video 1: Understanding Estimated Tax Payments**

– **Video 2: Calculating Your Estimated Taxes**

– **Video 3: Tips for Managing Tax Payments**


These lessons are thorough and may seem complex, but they contain valuable information for you.
