  1. Open Screen 12, Estimates (1041-ES).

  4. (Optional) Enter the date the payment was made, if it is different from the due date on the voucher in 1st Quarter: Date.
  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for each quarter and for each of the Additional Estimated Tax Payments.

Note: The program will allocate estimates to the beneficiaries proportionate to their share of ordinary income.

  1. Open Screen 12, Estimates.
  2. In the Section list, select [Next Year] Estimated Tax.
  3. Enter the estimated tax payments in the [Next Year] Estimated Tax override fields. Enter -1 to set a payment to zero. If you override fewer than four quarters, the program adjusts the remaining quarters to reflect the difference between the calculated estimated tax and the overridden payment amounts.

Note: When a taxpayer is not in an estimated tax situation but wants to apply part of a refund to estimated tax in the next year. Enter the amount to apply to the upcoming year in Apply overpayment to [Next Year] and the same amount in [Next Year] Estimated Tax [O]. To override specific estimated tax payments, make entries in [Next Year] Estimates - Quarterly Payments [O]

  1. Open Screen 12, Estimates.
  2. In the Section list, select [Next Year] Estimated Tax.
  3. In Estimate Options, press CTRL+T, and select 8=Print Blank Estimates. You cannot apply an overpayment when printing blank estimates.
