If all goes according to plan, you will be a filing as aSingle taxpayer for tax year 1999. You should figureyour "tax liability" ahead of time. Like right now!To avoid any tax penalty, you want with-holding tobe 90% of your 1999 "tax liability" or 100%. of your1998 "tax". (this is called Safe Harbor) Since you filed jointly for tax year 1998, you could use one-half of the "joint" tax liability for last year to figure your 1999 safe harbor amount. (This part is where I'm looking for some "confirmation" from others - it can get complex due to the divorce.) The divorcecauses tax concerns when there are dependents, alimony, support-agreements, ( not child support) or health/life insurance policies that you have to pay, for her, over specified years. Many of these can be deductible items. Good Luck.
