I'm subject to back-up withholding as there a a few years in the 90's where I sent in money but never got the forms done. Usually the amount that gets withheld equals my tax liability, more or less, so although I will get it taken care of, it helps me out come April 15th.For 2007 the amount withheld was low, so I decided to sell some stock in January ...of 2008. I thought "How clever I am, it will be in by the time the Jan. 15 estimated tax is due".Now I think I may have goofed--- does the IRS earmark that 28% withholding to be applied to the year I will get a 1099 for it, i.e. 2008?I called the IRS and after a long conversation with 4 people, I got only the answer that they don't seem to know as they won't have information on 1099's until August.I think I wasn't so clever and just lent the gov some extra money for a year! Does any one know if I can apply it to 2007 taxes?Karen
