The IRS has reminded taxpayers that the last quarter of 2021 is a good time to check withholding. The IRS’s convenient Tax Withholding Estimator (https://www.irs.gov/individuals/tax-withholding-estimator), will help taxpayers determine if they have too much withheld and how to make an adjustment to put more cash into their own pocket now. About 70 percent of taxpayers over withhold their taxes every year, which typically results in a refund. Alternatively, it will help taxpayers see that they should withhold more or make an estimated tax payment to avoid a tax bill when they file their tax return next year.
The following things need to be considered when adjusting withholding for 2021:
Taxes are generally paid throughout the year whether from salary withholding, quarterly estimated tax payments, or a combination of both. Taxpayers can pay online, by phone, or from the IRS2Go app. Finally, taxpayers can schedule payments for future dates, which can be useful during filing season, for payment plan payments or for estimated tax payments.
