AJ - I don't make estimated payments normally. So having to make one was "not anticipated". I think only once or twice in 25 years have I had an issue with this. This year could make three times, and this year the amount is significant (in the past I think I owed penalties less than $50 on the rare occasions I hit it).

The stocks all triggered their stops within about three weeks last month. So it all appeared in one quarter.

I'm not familiar with the "annualized method", so I will have to do some research.

Appreciate the input.
