Form 1040 --> Form 2210 - Late Penalties and Interest Worksheet
If you put a date in there for "Date return will be received by IRS" the interest is calculated as if you used the year 2022 instead of 2021. It calculates in Part II below through the period ending 06/30/2022.
Anyone else seeing this? Can somebody fix it?
Yes I experience a similar result with 2020 Late Penalties and Interest Worksheet. This worksheet also populates the due date of the 2020 individual income tax return on line 3b as 7/15/2020. You may check the box on line 3b and change the due date manually.
That change does not change the calculation of 5a Number of months, or fraction thereof, that payment was late.
You must override line 5a and manually enter the correct number of months and the applicable interest rate periods in Part II. Interest will calculate for the periods the tax remained unpaid or late and continue to calculate for quarterly periods after the tax is expected to be paid.
