Where to mail your estimated tax 1040-ES form

UPDATED June 13, 2017: The table showing where to snail mail your estimated tax payment voucher has been updated. Some links also have been changed.

Has your summer gotten off to a good start? Great!

But if you must make estimated tax payments, you need to take a break from your fun in the sun and send in your second Form 1040-ES for tax year 2013.

It's usually due on June 15. But since that's a Saturday this year, you get a couple more days to make the payment.

Your second estimated tax payment for 2013 is due Monday, June 17. And that reminder is this week's Weekly Tax Tip.

You can pay estimated taxes via credit or debit card, electronic funds withdrawal or using the IRS' Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS).

I'm an EFTPS fan and just finished setting up this and the remainer of 2013's estimated payments via the online service. Now I just have to make sure I have the money in my account before Uncle Sam electronically collects it!

Snail mail details: If you prefer, however, to write a paper check or money order and mail it to the Internal Revenue Service, make sure you send it to the correct processing office. It might not be the same one to which you snail mailed your annual 1040.

**Bona fide residents must prepare separate vouchers for estimated tax income tax self-employment tax payments. Send the income tax vouchers to the address for bona fide residents and the self-employment tax vouchers to the address for non bona-fide residents. More information on bona fide resident rules can be found in Chapter 1 of IRS Publication 570, Tax Guide for Individuals with Income From U.S. Possessions.

Postmark paramount: If you do use the U.S. Postal Service to send in your 1040-ES, remember to get it in the outgoing box in time for it to postmarked June 17. The same timely filed postmark standard that IRS accepts for your annual return filing is used for estimated tax payments, too.

And make your check out to the U.S. Treasury, not to the IRS.

Since most of us already figured out how much estimated tax we need to pay each quarter when we filed our first 1040-ES back in April, this June payment shouldn't take too long.

Remember, the sooner you take care of this tax task, the sooner you'll get back to enjoying your summer break.

I prefer EFTPS also. It's is not the easiest user interface, but it definitely beats snail mail.
