I think the bottom line here is that the sooner you pay in estimated taxes that either equal 90% of what you expect to owe for 1999 or 100/110% of 1998 taxes, the sooner any penalties will stop running. Others have suggested various tax estimating programs you can utilize. This looks like the best idea to me. I wouldn't necessarily rely on the annualized income method exempting you from the potential penalties.
