I have a fairly new LLC (started in September of this year)

Resolved Question:

I have a fairly new LLC (started in September of this year) and expected to receive some tax paperwork by now so that I can file my quarterly taxes. I am the only person involved in my business as a Notary Signing Agent who does independent work for people who call on me for my services. I provide a W-9 to each of them prior to being signed in to have my services used by them. I have heard that I do not need to file quarterly, that once a year is okay, since I am not expecting to make a profit. I have probably broken even so far for the amount put in to creation of the company. Do I need to be prepared to pay penalties for not filing any taxes yet?

Is this a single member LLC that you will be filing on your personal tax return?
Did you file for a S election?

one moment. I am looking through some of my information. I know that I had spoken with someone about the "s" corporation, but I don't believe I ever filed for it.

Since you are a single member LLC and are breaking even - meaning you do not have too much income in excess of the expenses- you so not have to make any quarterly estimated tax payment.

So yes, you are correct that you do not have to make estimated tax payment. Generally you are expected to make a quarterly estimated tax payment if your tax liability is going to be at least $1000 after subtracting your tax withholding, if any, and the tax credits.
