2012 Estimated Tax Deadlines

For estimated tax purposes, the year is divided into four payment periods. Each period has a specific payment due date. If you do not pay enough tax by the due date of each of the payment periods, you may be charged a penalty even if you are due a refund when you file your income tax return.

Here are the payment periods and estimated tax due dates for 2012:
