Estimated Tax - Individual CouponDR 0104EP (09/21/16) COLORADO DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE Denver, CO 80261-0008 www.TaxColorado.com *DO=NOT=SEND* Individual Estimated Income Tax Instructions Estimated tax is the method used to pay tax on income that is not subject to withholding. Wages typically have withholding, but earnings from self-employment, interest, dividends, rents, etc. would be subject to estimated tax. You might also pay estimated tax if your withholdings are not enough to be excluded from the General Rule below. If you file form 1040-ES with the IRS, typically you would pay estimated tax to the Colorado Department of Revenue. See publication FYI Income 51 for more information, which is available at www.TaxColorado.com General Rule In most cases, you will pay estimated tax if you expect to owe more than $1,000 in tax for 2017, after subtracting any withholding or refundable credits you might have. Required Payments The required annual amount to be paid is the smaller of: a. 70% of the actual net Colorado tax liability. b. 100% of the preceding year’s net Colorado tax liability. This rule only applies if the preceding year was a 12-month tax year, the individual filed a Colorado return, and the federal adjusted gross income on that return was $150,000 or less (or, if married filing separately, $75,000 or less). c. 110% of the preceding year’s net Colorado tax liability. This amount applies only if the preceding year was a 12-month year, and the individual filed a Colorado return. Annualized Installment Method Those who do not receive income evenly throughout the year may elect to file using this method. Specific instructions for the annualized installment method are available in publication FYI Income 51. Carryforward of Estimated Overpayment Any overpayment designated for carryforward on your Colorado income tax return from the previous year must be applied to the first estimated tax payment due for this tax period. Calculating the Payment Use the provided Worksheet to calculate the amount of estimated tax owed. Reference the previous year Colorado Income Tax Return form and instructions for help determining taxable income. Those who file joint returns must make the payment under the taxpayer name and ID number that will be listed first on the income tax return. Remit payments according to the due date table provided in the worksheet. Penalties Failure to timely remit estimated tax as necessary will result in an estimated tax penalty. Exceptions will be given to farmers or fishermen who file and remit full payment by March 1. Otherwise, penalty will be calculated for each missed or late payment. For calculation specifics, or to remit this penalty before being billed, see Form 204, Underpayment of Individual Estimated Tax. Refunds Estimated tax payments can only be claimed as prepayment credit on the 2017 Colorado income tax return. Therefore, estimated payments cannot be refunded in any manner until such time that the Colorado income tax return is filed.

Form 104EP is a Colorado Individual Income Tax form. While most taxpayers have income taxes automatically withheld every pay period by their employer, taxpayers who earn money that is not subject to withholding (such as self employed income, investment returns, etc) are often required to make estimated tax payments on a quarterly basis. Failure to make correct estimated payments can result in interest or penalties.
About the Individual Income Tax
The IRS and most states collect a personal income tax, which is paid throughout the year via tax withholding or estimated income tax payments.
Most taxpayers are required to file a yearly income tax return in April to both the Internal Revenue Service and their state's revenue department, which will result in either a tax refund of excess withheld income or a tax payment if the withholding does not cover the taxpayer's entire liability. Every taxpayer's situation is different - please consult a CPA or licensed tax preparer to ensure that you are filing the correct tax forms!
