Customer Question

I have recieved a large lump sum of cash, and I was wondering what would happen to it. Will the taxes be taken out when I deposit it in my account immediately or will I have untill April 15th to pay the taxes? I was curious because it is over 10,000.00.

Hello again wallace,


If that is the case, then I have to assume that no taxes have been taken out at this point. If you simply plan to deposit this money into your bank account, the bank will certainly not withhold any taxes.


However, you may want to consider yourself making an estimated tax payment to the IRS just so that at the end of the year you do not end up being too short on the tax paid in, and having to pay not only your tax, but also some interest.


If you would like to make an estimated tax payment to the IRS you can do so by filling out Form 1040-ES and submitting it to the IRS with your estimated tax payment. You would then receive credit for that payment when you do your tax returns at the end of the year. But the bank itself will not withhold any tax on the money you deposit.
