Individuals who are sole proprietors or have an ownership in flow through entities in certain circumstances may be required to pay tax estimates based on their prior year income or expected current year income.
'Flow-through' entities include partnerships, S corporations, and businesses that file on Schedule C.
The income or loss from these businesses is passed through to the individual owners. This means that the individual owners are responsible for paying taxes on their share of the business income or loss.
Individuals who have an ownership interest in flow-through entities should be sure to factor in their share of the business's estimated income or loss businesses while determining their tax estimates throughout the year.
Tax estimates are typically due on the 15th day of the 4th, 6th, 9th of the tax year & the 15th of 1st month of the next tax year. For calendar-year taxpayers the due dates are April 15th, June 15th, September 15th, and January 15th.
It’s important to note that the income or loss for your business is only one part of the overall individual tax calculation. There are a lot of other factors that can impact an individual’s tax liability and potential tax estimates. Things like W-2 wages, deductions, credits, and other sources of income can all play a role.
Your tax preparer will use the income or loss generate by your business (or multiple businesses) as part of the full picture of your individual's tax liability and the corresponding tax estimate payments (if any).
