Individual : Important Tax Preparation Dates

For any tax payer it is important to know and remember the deadlines prescribed for meeting the defined tax obligations.It is however, not easy always to remember every prescribed deadline and therefore we have tried to give below important month wise dates which a tax payer needs to remember.

Important Tax Preparation Dates

January 18

  • Pay your estimated tax for the tax-year if you haven’t paid income tax for the tax-year through withholding (or did not pay enough tax in that way). This is final installment date for estimated tax payment and for this Use Form 1040-ES. And if you file your yearly return (Form 1040) and pay any tax due by January 31 of the year, you do not have to make this payment.

January 31 for Individuals who must make estimated tax payments

  • If you haven’t paid last installment of estimated tax by January 18, you may choose (but not required) to file income tax return (Form 1040) for the year by January 31 of the year. Paying any tax and filing return before due date i.e. January 31 prevents any penalty for late payment of estimated tax installment. If you haven’t filed and paid tax by January 31, you can file and pay tax before or on April 15.

February 15

  • Last year if you claimed exemption from income tax withholding through Form W-4 and gave it to your employer, must file a new Form W-4 by this date to continue your exemption for this year and next year.
