If you earn money that doesn’t have taxes withheld when you’re paid, you’ll probably have to pay quarterly estimated taxes to the IRS (and most likely to your state’s department of revenue) in 2019.

Self-employed individuals typically must pay quarterly estimated taxes on a schedule established by the IRS.

Here are the quarterly estimated tax payment due dates for 2019:

April 15, 2019: Income tax due date AND the due date for your first quarterly estimated tax (QET) payment. In April, you’ll pay quarterly estimated taxes on the income you made in January, February, and March 2019.

June 17, 2019: This is when you’ll pay quarterly estimated taxes on the income you made in April, May, and June 2019.

September 16, 2019: Quarterly estimated taxes for the months of July, August, and September 2019 are due on this date.

January 15, 2020: Quarterly estimated taxes for the months of October, November, and December 2019 are due on this date.
