When does the IRS require...
When does the IRS require that I change from a quarterly to monthly depositor? I know now that total withholding for this quarter will exceed $2500. But, do I have to switch mid-quarter? Or can I just wait until after I file this quarter to switch to monthly?

Hi,Liability of $2,500 or more: Unless you are eligible to make payments with your return, you must deposit your taxes. If you are a Form 941 filer and you are not sure your total tax liability for the current quarter will be less than $2,500, (and your liability for the preceding quarter was not less than $2,500), make deposits using the semiweekly or monthly rules so you won't be subject to failure-to-deposit penalties.
