P.S. The old tax collector in me has to ask why you didn't have the cash available to make your estimated tax payment without these contortions. You really should be setting aside the tax money from your receipts, rather than having to figure out where the money's going to come from when you have to make a payment.

Mr. Marti,

Your P.S. question is well founded, especially when I've been paying my taxes this way for 20 years. This is the first time I have been in this dilema.

I was told I would be receiveing a large lump sum by now. Since this would have easily covered my payment I reached out to help someone in need (medical bills/childcare needs etc.) knowing full well Jan 15 was quickly approaching. I knew I was sticking my neck out because the expected return had not arrived. I have been assured I will be receiving it on or about Jan 15 so this is my backup plan if I do not receive it by then.

Thank you for your assistance.
