The penalty is essentially daily interest until paid. I don't know the exact interest rates for 2012. They haven't been extremely high. I believe for an individual in the range of 3%.
Delaying federal payment until April would like cost you between 1 and 2% of the underwithheld amount.
fwiw : TurboTax says my penalty is about $70 on $3500 tax
.... I figure it's not worth the trouble to deal with ES at
