To help provide relief during the COVID-19 health crisis, the Indiana Department of Revenue extended the due dates for the first and second estimated tax payments. See page 3 for more information. WHAT is the purpose of Schedule IT-2210? This schedule is used for one of two reasons: 1. To help you figure any penalty you owe for not paying enough tax throughout the year, or 2. To show you paid enough tax throughout the year to be exempt from the penalty. WHY is a penalty charged? The Indiana income tax system is a “pay as you go” system. Many taxpayers have enough taxes withheld from their income throughout the year to cover their year-end total tax due. However, if you don’t have taxes withheld from your income, or if you don’t have enough tax withheld from your income, you may owe a penalty for underpaying estimated tax. WHO should use Schedule IT-2210? You should complete this schedule if: • The amount you owe for tax year 2020, after credits, is $1,000 or more. The amount you owe is from Form IT-40 and Form IT-40PNR, line 15 minus line 14, or • You underpaid the minimum amount due for one or more of the installment periods. This is true even if you are due a refund. HOW much is the penalty? The penalty is 10% of the underpayment for each underpaid installment period. That is why Section E of this schedule is set up by periods, and should be filled out one column at a time. WHAT DO I NEED to complete this form? You’ll need a copy of: • Your completed 2020 Form IT-40 or Form IT-40PNR, • Your 2019 Form IT-40 or Form IT40PNR, and • Records of actual estimated tax payments you made for 2020. WHAT ELSE do I need to know about this schedule? • If you are a farmer or fisherman, you should review Section A below and Section D - Short Method instructions on page 2. • All taxpayers need to know about the short method of figuring the penalty in Section D. • If you received seasonal income (i.e. you had fireworks sales, you worked during a Christmas season, etc.) that is not evenly received throughout the year, you might want to complete Schedule IT-2210A, Annualized Income Schedule. Annualization could possibly reduce your required installment tax payments. You may download Schedule IT-2210A from the following web address: www.in.gov/dor/7101.htm. Section A – Farmers and Fishermen If at least two-thirds of your gross income for 2019 or 2020 was from farming or fishing, you have only one payment due date for 2020 estimated tax - Jan. 15, 2021. To meet an exception to the underpayment penalty for 2020, you may use Option 1 or Option 2: Option 1 – Pay all your estimated tax by Jan. 15, 2021, and file your Form IT-40 by April 15, 2021, OR Option 2 – File your Form IT-40 by March 1, 2021, and pay all the tax due. You are not required to make an estimated tax payment if you choose this second option. If you pay all the tax due, you will not be penalized for failure to pay estimated tax. Section B – Early Filers If you file your individual income tax return and pay the tax due by Feb. 1, 2021, you will not be required to make a fourth installment estimated tax payment. For additional information see the instructions for line 16. Section C – Required Annual Payments Section C will determine if you should have paid estimated taxes during the year and the minimum amount required. Line 1 – 2020 Tax: Add together the state adjusted gross income tax and county income tax from lines 8 and 9 of either Form IT-40 or Form IT-40PNR, any recapture of certain Indiana credits from line 3 of Indiana’s Schedule 4 or Schedule E, plus any nonresident professional team member’s county tax from Schedule E, line 4. Enter the total here. Line 2 – 2020 Credits: Add together any credits from lines 4 through 8 of Indiana’s Schedule 5 or Schedule F, plus any offset credits from line 8 of Indiana’s Schedule 6 or Schedule G. Enter the total here. Line 4 – To determine 90 percent of your total expected tax, multiply line 3 by 90 percent (.90). Note. If at least 2/3 of your gross in come is from farming or fishing, multi ply line 3 by 66 2/3 percent (.667). Line 5 – 2020 Withholding: Add together any state and county withholding amounts from lines 1 and 2 of Indiana’s Schedule 5 or Schedule F. Enter the total here. Line 6 – Subtract line 5 from line 3. If this amount is less than $1,000, you do not owe a penalty. Stop here and attach a copy of this schedule to your individual income tax return. Line 7 – Prior Year’s Tax Exception: See if you are eligible for any of the following exceptions. • • If you filed a 2019 Form IT-40, add the tax from lines 8 and 9; subtract the total of the credits on line 13 plus any amounts on Schedule 5, lines 4 through 8. Enter the result here. Note. See CAUTION box below. If you filed a 2019 Form IT-40PNR as a full-year nonresident, add the tax from lines 8 and 9; subtract the total of the credits on line 13 plus any amounts on Schedule F, lines 4 through 8. Enter the result here. Note. See CAUTION box below. • If you filed a 2019 Form IT- 40PNR as a part-year resident of Indiana, you must figure the tax for that year on an annualized basis. See the instruction and Example for when 2019 Form IT40PNR was filed as a part-year resident in the right-hand column. Line 8 – Minimum required annual payment: Enter the lesser of line 4 or line 7. If the line 7 entry is N/A, enter the amount from line 4 on this line. Continue to Section D or Section E, whichever applies. Section D – Short Method You can use the short method only if: Example for when 2019 Form IT-40PNR was filed as a part-year resident: If you filed a 2019 Form IT-40PNR as a part-year resident of Indiana, you must figure the tax for that year on an annualized basis. You can accomplish this by multiplying the Form IT-40PNR line 1 income by 12 and dividing the result by the number of months you were an Indiana resident. Then figure the state tax and county tax, if applicable, by 1) subtracting your 2020 exemptions from the result and 2) multiplying that total by the combined state and applicable county tax rate(s) from your 2020 Indiana individual income tax return. See the example below. Note. See CAUTION box below. Example • Jane moved to Indiana on Sept. 15, 2019, so she was a resident for 3.5 months. • Her 2019 Form IT-40PNR line 1 income is $10,000. • Her 2020 total exemptions are $3,500. • The 2020 adjusted gross income tax rate is 3.23% (.0323). Her 2020 county tax rate is .01 (for a 4.23% [.0423] combined state and county tax rate). Use Steps 1 - 4 below to figure her prior year’s tax exception for line 7 of the IT-2210. 2019 Indiana income Step 1 $ 10,000 x 12 months $ 120,000 annualized income Step 2 $ 120,000 ÷ 3.5 34,286 annualized income months of 2019 residency Step 3 $ 34,286 - 3,500 30,786 2020 exemptions Step 4 $ 30,786 x 4.23% $ 1,302* 2020 combined state and county tax rate * The $1,302 Step 4 amount should be entered as an exception on line 7 of Jane’s Schedule IT-2210. • You made no estimated tax payments, or • You paid estimated tax in four equal amounts by the due dates, or CAUTION. If your 2019 Indiana adjusted gross income (line 7 of Form IT-40 or Form IT-40PNR) is more than $150,000 ($75,000 if your 2019 filing status is married filing separately), you must enter 110% of last year’s tax (instead of 100%) on line 7. • At least two-thirds of your gross income from 2019 or 2020 was from farming or fishing and an estimated tax payment (if any) was made by Jan. 15, 2021. Example. Chris and Kate’s 2019 Indiana adjusted gross income from line 7 of Form IT-40 is $158,000. They must take the following steps to arrive at the exception amount for line 7: You can’t use the short method if either of the following applies: a) b) c) d) e) 2019 IT-40 total income tax (line 8 plus line 9)............................$ 6,952 2019 IT-40 credits (line 13 plus Schedule 5, lines 4 through 8) - 1,952 Subtotal.......................................................................................$ 5,000 Exception to the penalty percentage...........................................x 110% Amount for line 7 of Schedule IT-2210........................................$ 5,500 • You made any estimated tax payments late, or Note. If Chris and Kate’s 2019 Indiana adjusted gross income is less than $150,000, they would enter $5,000 instead of $5,500 on line 7. 2 • You made estimated payments in unequal amounts. Section E – Regular Method Use the regular method if you aren’t eligible to use the short method. If you are a fiscal year taxpayer, you must change the dates in Columns A through D to correspond with your fiscal year. Important: To help provide relief during the COVID-19 health crisis, the Indiana Department of Revenue extended the due dates for the first and second estimated tax installment payments from April 15, 2020 and June 15, 2020, respectively, to July 15, 2020. Example. Kristen paid $500 for both her first and second installment payments on July 15, 2020. She will enter $500 on line 16, Columns A and B. Note: The total of the payments listed on line 16, Columns A and B, cannot exceed the total of the payments made by July 15, 2020. Line 14 – Minimum Required Installment: Divide the amount on line 8 by four and enter the result in each column. If you are filing this year as a partyear resident on Form IT-40PNR, you must divide line 8 by the number of installment periods during which you were a resident of Indiana. Installment Periods Are: 1st Period...... Jan. 1 to March 31 2nd Period...... April 1 to May 31 3rd Period...... June 1 to Aug. 31 4th Period...... Sept. 1 to Dec. 31 Line 15 – 2020 Withholding To determine your installment period withholding credit, divide the amount on line 5 by four and enter the result in each column. STOP. Complete lines 16 through 19 for each column before going to the next column. Line 16 – 2020 Estimated Taxes Paid: Enter the actual amount of estimated tax you timely paid for each installment period. Payments made after the due dates are to be reported in the next column. Example. Joe paid $800 in estimated taxes for 2020. His third installment payment of $200 was not made until Oct. 1 (after the Sept. 15 due date). The $200 payment should be reported as a 4th period installment payment. Note for Early Filers. If you file your individual income tax return and pay the tax due by Feb. 1, 2021, you will not be required to make a 4th installment estimated tax payment. You should include on line 16, Column D, the amount of tax you paid with your tax return (Form IT-40 or Form IT-40PNR) minus any household employment tax, use tax, recapture of certain Indiana credits, nonresident professional team member’s county tax from Schedule F, and/or the amount shown on the return to be applied to your 2021 estimated tax account. Line 17 – Total Installment Payments To determine your total installment payments, add lines 15 and 16 in each column and enter that column’s total here. Line 18 – Installment Period Overpayment: If the total payment (line 17) is more than the required payment due (line 14) for an installment period, enter the difference on this line. This amount should then be added to line 16 in the next column after subtracting any underpayment(s) shown on line 19 in the previous column(s). Note. If, after subtracting any underpayments, this amount is less than zero, no overpayment will be available to carry over to the next installment period. Also, do not carry over a negative figure if this amount is less than zero. 3 Example. Dana had a $100 underpayment on line 19, Column A. She had a $130 overpayment on line 18, Column B. The net overpayment from the first two installment periods is $30 ($130 minus $100). She will add this net overpayment to any estimated tax paid for the third installment period on line 16, Column C. Line 19 – Installment Period Underpayment: If the total payment (line 17) is less than the required tax (line 14) for an installment period, enter the difference on this line. Line 21 – Underpayment Penalty This amount must also be entered on line 20 of your 2020 Form IT-40 or Form IT-40PNR. Who Must Submit Schedule IT-2210? • A farmer/fisherman utilizing Section A, Option 1 or 2 • Early filers checking box in Section B • Anyone completing Section D or Section E. Important. You must enclose a copy of Schedule IT-2210 to your tax return if you are claiming an exception to the penalty for the underpayment of estimated tax.

Form IT-2210 is an Indiana 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!
