Hey Dave,

I am a member and would really appreciate some advice on filing estimated taxes. Please let me know if you provide this service.

Bev,

Thank you for your inquiry. Estimated taxes are filed on Form 1040-ES. While we at TaxAudit.com do not prepare or file tax forms, TurboTax should be able to assist you with this.

TurboTax has a planning tool to help determine what your estimated payments should be. Click "Other Tax Situations" in the "Federal Taxes" or “Personal” section, then click "Start" or "Update" to the right of "Form W-4 and Estimated Taxes." TurboTax should also print the 1040-ES forms for you, and provide instructions for making the payments.

If you need help we suggest you contact TurboTax customer support.

Forms 1040-ES and instructions are also available on the IRS website.

Deductibly Yours,

Dave
