As a bonus for starting my 2018 return in a timely manner, Turbo Tax warned me that I probably needed to amend my 2017 return because I’m a moron who’s not as smrt as I think I am. That last part was implied. But I definitely messed up my 2017 IRA contributions and claims, which I believe will have a knock on effect on my 2018 return.
I need a CPA, but it’s the busy season and I cannot have one until after 15-April. So, now I also need an extension. I know I need to pay my estimated taxes, but I cannot reliably estimate them until I understand what knock on effects the 2017 mess up will have, which I cannot do until I have CPA. See?
Right now Turbo Tax estimates my 2018 refund at $81. Should I just throw $1,000 towards my 2018 estimated taxes, and hope for the best?
