Last year we owed no taxes--all were offset by various credits.

Last month and this month, my husband's received a couple of bonuses that have effectively doubled his income for tax year 2001 vs. 2000. (A one-off.) Do we have to pay estimated tax?


No. Just make sure you have the money invested somewhere to pay the tax bill in April. I'd put it in a money market fund.
