Instructions and Help about 2019 - 2020 trust estimated tax payments

I'm Meg DeLuca I'm a partner in the Stanford office of comings and lockwood and my topic is when and to whom does a trust pay income tax the basic point of this conversation is really when what states are permitted to tax a trust so we're gonna be focusing on how States tax various trusts and what types of connections the state has to have to those trusts in order to tax the trust for income tax purposes so for purposes of our discussion we're gonna talk about two types of trusts the first one is grantor trusts as you may know a grantor Trust is a trust where the income earned in the trust is taxed back to the grantor on the grand tours individual income tax return the second type of trust is a non-grantor trusts and there's two there's subcategories to that it doesn't really matter but for this discussion but I'm gonna tell you what they are one is a simple trust which basically requires that all the income go out to the beneficiaries and then there's a complex trust which is anything that's not a simple trust for purposes of grantor trusts and that at and state law if a trust is treated as a grantor trust for federal income tax purposes it is almost universally treated as a grantor trust for state income tax purposes which makes it very easy for us to understand their laws regarding taxation of state in states of grantor trusts there are two exceptions they're not very notable but Alabama does not recognize grantor trusts unless the trust is a revocable trust and Pennsylvania recognizes grantor trust but not if it's a grantor Trust as to the beneficiary of the trust I'm not going to get into the details of that because we're gonna put grantor Trust aside they're not that interesting in this topic so we're gonna talk about non-grantor trusts there are two basic premises about non-grantor trusts that pretty much universally apply first of all the ordinary income that's distributed to the beneficiary or beneficiaries of a non grantor Trust is generally taxed on the beneficiary's personal income tax return so if it's going out of the trust it's gonna be taxed to the beneficiary as opposed to the trust at rusts source income which is income earned on assets or businesses in a particular jurisdiction or state will be taxed by that state so if you have a business or real estate let's say in New York and you're getting rent from that the trust will pay tax to New York on that rent so the question then becomes what state gets to tax the undistributed ordinary income and any capital gains that isn't source income of a particular state and that's a difficult question because in order to tax a taxpayer any state to tax a taxpayer the taxpayer has to have some Nexus that's the word Nexus to that state and

For New York state, are state quarterly estimated tax payments required in addition to federal quarterly estimated tax payments?
You have good answers.  The reason that quarterly estimated tax payments are required is taxes are based on the cash basis.  Taxes occur at the time of revenue/income.  Quarterly payments allow one to withhold more conveniently than with each transaction.  Most companies do withholding with each pay check which puts the tax closest to income event.  The Feds and NYS have penalties for underwithholding and a formula to calculate if you underwithheld on quarterly estimated payments.  Estimated taxes
Do I need to make quarterly estimated tax payments?
You personally, probably do not need to make estimated tax deposits. However, your partnership probably does need to be withholding tax and paying that in on your behalf. Obviously I don’t have all of your information, but I am assuming you are a non-US individual and have income “effectively connected to a US trade or business” via the partnership and thus need to file a US non-resident tax return to report that income. Note your income would include your share of profits from the partnership and is not just dependent on what you pay yourself as guaranteed payments.If you are instead a US citizen or resident alien, then yes you do need to make estimated tax deposits, but are probably ok for this year as long as you file and pay what you owe in US tax before April 15.
How do independent contractors estimate their quarterly taxes?
There are some quick ways to do this. Some of the other answers lead you in that direction. Here’s my take on this:If you pay in an amount at least equal to what you paid in last year’s taxes ( the total tax bill), you won’t have a penalty. Yea, you might owe, but no penalty.If you don’t pay in, you’ll pay what is in essence interest, in the form of a non-deductible penalty. The interest rate is under 5% annualized. But, you will have a humongous tax bill.Maybe you can adjust your W-4, and have large withholding from your salary now, which takes care of most of the estimate. So, if you are married, claim single 0. It will hurt a bit on each paycheck, but you’ll pay in a lot more, maybe covering what you owe.To get an idea of what you owe on the independent contractor earnings, first you have to know what they are! Take what you received, and deduct your expenses. Remember, you may be entitled to an office in home, your mileage, and other easily missed deductions. (A CPA or EA would be a good person to help you this year… they’ll know how to calculate everything, and it’s a lot better than you struggling or guessing). With your net income calculated, you must figure your self employment tax ( at about 15%, and your income tax ( use 12% for fed, 3 - 5 % for most states). You’ll have a ballpark amount. ( I know, the rates are all over the place, I am just throwing you what I think most people end up at. Again, great reason to consult with a CPA or EA.)Kudo’s to you for being on top of this and not doing what some of my clients do, which is wait until next April and then have a heart attack, despite my pleading!
