2008 Estimated Tax Payments(p45)


rule
spacer

Enter any estimated federal income tax payments you made for 2008. Include any overpayment from your 2007 return that you applied to your 2008 estimated tax.
If you and your spouse paid joint estimated tax but are now filing separate income tax returns, you can divide the amount paid in any way you choose as long as you both agree. If you cannot agree, you must divide the payments in proportion to each spouse's individual tax as shown on your separate returns for 2008. For an example of how to do this, see Pub. 505. Be sure to show both social security numbers (SSNs) in the space provided on the separate returns. If you or your spouse paid separate estimated tax but you are now filing a joint return, add the amounts you each paid. Follow these instructions even if your spouse died in 2008 or in 2009 before filing a 2008 return.
