So every business and individual according to the IRS are required to pay taxes as we receive our income. I call this paying as you go. It is actually helpful in preparing for taxes at the beginning of year and for avoiding extra cost. The IRS says anyone who owe more than $1,000 in tax and has not paid taxes through out the year can be penalized and charged interest. Many of us forget, but it’s just like getting paid as an employee.
The employer negotiate your gross pay, you give permission to withholding tax, social security, medicare and you are paid the net amount. This is true for businesses as well. You are responsible to pay a 15.3% self employed tax
