For married filing joint with standard deduction and two exemptions using total income of 1,100,000 the taxable income of 1,081,000 is estimated tax at 348,222.


Tax of 348,222 and withholding of 283,000 is a balance due of about 65,200.


There should not be any penalty for underpayment of estimated tax (even though the balance due is more than 1,000) because more than 110% of the prior year total tax was paid during the year.


Please ask if you need clarification.

Thank you.
