  2. Check the box to File the state(s) return electronically.
  3. In the State(s) table, select the state you need to e-file estimated tax payments for.
  4. Scroll down and locate the section labeled Electronic Filing of Estimated Payments.
  5. Check the box to file the state estimated tax payments electronically.
  6. In the table, select the State Quarterly Payment and all other payments (2nd, 3rd, 4th) that you'll file electronically.
    • Select one payment per table row.
  7. Complete the federal and state corporate returns, including the appropriate Estimated Tax Worksheet within the state return.

On the State Information Worksheet:

  1. Scroll down to the Electronic Filing Information section.
  2. Make sure that the Estimated payments will be filed electronically checkbox is marked.
  3. Note the table indicating the Quarter, the Payment Amount and the Payment Due Date
    • This information will be calculated based upon the information present on the Estimated Payments Worksheet.

On the ProSeries EF Center HomeBase:

  1.  Locate the client's return.
    • The Estimated Payment will be identified on its own line. In this case FL Corp Pmt is displayed in the Return Type column for a Florida Corporation Estimated Tax Payment.
  2. When you're ready to e-file the payment, select the row associated with the client's FL Corp Pmt and transmit the payment as you would any electronic return.
 

Each quarterly estimated tax payment must be e-filed separately. Only a single payment will be displayed in the EF Center at a time. Additional payments will only be displayed after the prior payment has been transmitted and accepted. Payments may only be transmitted within 30 days of the payment due date.
