I have no withholding taken out. What do I do?


The law requires taxpayers to prepay their taxes. Since you do not prepay your taxes through withholding, you may be required to make quarterly estimated tax payments towards your taxes.

To determine if you are required to pay estimated taxes, find the total tax line on your 2015 return. If the amount on line 64 of Form 540 or line 74 of Form 540NR is $500 or more ($250 if married/registered domestic partner filing separately), or if it will be $500 ($250 if married/registered domestic partner filing separately) or more on your 2016 return, you are required to pay estimated taxes. Use the Estimated Tax Worksheet in the instructions for Form 540ES to figure your estimated tax payments. Use Form 540-ES vouchers to pay your estimated tax installments or pay online using our web pay service.
