I believe it is okay to pay quarterly taxes early (in fact, I think I had posed this question on the board before). For instance, I will be sending in my quarterly taxes due for the September 15 quarter next week (I had sent in my June 15 tax payment back in April).

But I have a question regarding this: what if I had wanted to send them in before the deadline for the second-quarter tax period? What if I had sent them in on June 1 and they arrived at the IRS by June 15? I was curious if doing this might potentially cause a mistake; would the handler possibly doubly credit me for the June 15 quarter, or would the form I enclosed with the September 15 deadline be enough to eliminate any confusion? I ask because I may be able to send in my final payment very early due to my estimate of what I need to pay. But I don't want to do this if it means that the possibility of errors will increase.
