March 1 Filing Deadline for Farmers, Fishers

Those with income from a farming or fishing business can avoid making any estimated tax payments by filing and paying their entire tax due on or before March 1. This rule generally applies if farming or fishing income was at least two-thirds of the taxpayer's total gross income in either the current or the preceding tax year. Those who choose not to file by March 1 should have made an estimated tax payment by January 15 to avoid an estimated tax penalty. Read more here.
