Override estimated tax voucher payment amounts in ProConnect Tax

SOLVEDby IntuitProConnect Tax29Updated October 15, 2021

This article will help you override the estimated tax payment amounts that print on your federal payment vouchers and client letter. These steps can also be used for most states, though exact inputs may vary. Click on your return type below to get started.

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. On the left-side menu, select Payments, Penalties & Extensions.
  3. Select 2022Estimated Tax (1040-ES).
  4. Enter the Amount of overpayment to apply to 2022, if applicable.
  5. Under the Overrides section, check the box Do not reduce override by overpayment applied, if you do not want the amount from step 4 to adjust your override entries.
  6. Enter the desired voucher amounts for all four quarters, or enter an amount in 2022 Estimated Tax [Override]*.
    • Enter -1 to set a quarter to zero.
    • If already paid, enter the quarter as a negative amount (for example, -300).
    • If any quarter is overridden, all four quarters should be overridden.

*Use the 2022 Estimated Tax [Override] field in lieu of quarterly amounts to override the program's automatic calculation of next year's estimated tax liability. The program divides this amount by four to arrive at each required installment.

  1. Go to the Input Return tab.
  2. On the left-side menu, select Payments, Penalties & Extensions.
  3. Click on Estimated Tax.
  4. Select Next Yr. Estimates at the top of the screen.
  5. Locate the 2022 Estimates (before overpayment is applied) (negative if already paid, -1=none) subsection.
  6. Enter the desired amounts for all four quarters, or enter an amount in 2022 ES (-1=suppress, -2=blank) [Override]*.
    • Enter -1 to set a quarter to zero.
    • If already paid, enter the quarter as a negative amount (for example, -300).
    • If any quarter is overridden, all four quarters should be overridden.
