Tax Deadlines

Tax deadlines for quarterly estimated payments in 2020

The IRS requires quarterly estimated tax payments from many people whose income isn’t subject to payroll withholding taxes (usually the self-employed, independent contractors or people with investment earnings). For estimated taxes, the answer to “when are taxes due?” varies: The year is divided into four payment periods, and each period has its own payment due date.

In 2020, the IRS has pushed the annual tax-filing deadline from April 15 to July 15, and that change also applies to some 2020 estimated tax payments.

Here’s a look:
