I live in IL, so have to file both Federal and IL return. I also have to make estimated payments and almost always owe tax when I file. So in a normal year, I would file both returns by 4/15, have to pay the owed tax for the prior year with both returns, and then make my first estimated payment for both on 4/15 and my 2nd on 6/15. I found info. on IL website that says although the filing date and owed amount has been extended to 7/15, I still need to estimate my tax for this year and make my 4/15 and 6/15 estimated payments on time. But I don't see any information like that on IRS website. Can anyone give me some advice, other than moving out of the state of IL? Yes, I know, they have never met a tax they didn't like. There are only 2 things keeping me in this state, my job and my family. Thank you in advance.
