It would be helpful if, through my locator for a client, on a quarterly basis, for Federal and California, I could effect an electronic withdrawal from their bank account for their quarterly deposit.
In 2020, I filed the 2019 Federal and California tax return where the Balances Owing, 1st Qtr and 2nd Qtr estimates were indicated on the return to be electronically done on July 15. For Federal BTW, where ProSeries still hadn't updated their system to reflect when the Federal 2nd quarter estimate was due, I overrode it by shifting the Federal 2nd quarter deposit to pay in the 1st quarter so that the system would correctly do it on 7/15.
However, as the pandemic continues where results will continue to fall for the rest of the year where I will need to estimate what should be paid for the 3rd and 4th quarter for Fed and California, as it stands, I have to coordinate the electronic payments (for California required) electronically directly through the IRS and FTB.
This is an absolute pain in the back side!
