January 15 - Individual Estimated Tax Payment Due -
It’s time to make your fourth quarter estimated tax installment payment for the 2019 tax year.
January 31 - Individuals Who Must Make Estimated Tax Payments -
If you didn't pay your last installment of estimated tax by January 15, you may choose (but aren't required) to file your income tax return (Form 1040 or Form 1040-SR) for 2019 by January 31. Filing your return and paying any tax due by January 31 prevents any penalty for late payment of the last installment. If you can't file and pay your tax by January 31, file and pay your tax by April 15.
