Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
There is no need to inform the IRS before you will file your tax return.
If you are paying estimated taxes - you may recalculate your expected 2016 tax liability and adjust estimate tax payments.
Other that that - there is nothing you need to worry.
That would not be an issue either.
The IRS will ONLY start to "think" about you if your 2016 tax return will not be filed before Apr 15, 2017.
If you overpaid estimated taxes - you will be able to claim a refund on your tax return.
If you will not owe any additional taxes - or will owe less than $1000 - there will not be any underpayment penalty.
I feel that you are overreacting.
