RI Division of Taxation 2018 Estimated Payment in 2017

12/15/2017 - Some tax professionals have contacted the RI Division of Taxation recently about making a 2018 estimated tax payment during 2017. (Their inquiries are the result of tax planning related to proposed federal tax changes now being weighed by Congress.) In response to these requests, the Division provides the following information.

Personal income tax

As a convenience for taxpayers who want to make a 2018 estimated tax payment in 2017, the Division of Taxation has posted next year’s Form RI-1040ES earlier than it normally would. The 2018 version of Form RI-1040ES, “Rhode Island Resident and Nonresident Estimated Payment Coupons,” is available on the Division’s website.

If you want to make an estimated payment for 2018 – and make it before the end of this month (in other words, before the end of 2017), fill out the April coupon in the 2018 version of Form RI-1040ES. Send the completed April 2018 coupon, along with a check or money order, to:

Rhode Island Division of Taxation
One Capitol Hill
Providence, R.I. 02908

Trust and estate income tax
As a convenience for trusts and estates that seek to make a 2018 estimated tax payment during 2017, the Division of Taxation has posted the 2018 Form RI-1041ES, “Rhode Island Fiduciary Estimated Payment Coupons,” earlier than it normally would.
 
The 2018 version of Form RI-1041ES is available here.

If a trust or estate wants to make an estimated payment for 2018 – and make it before the end of 2017, the entity should mail the completed April 2018 coupon of Form RI-1041ES, along with a check or money order, to:

Providence, R.I. 02908

Composite filers
Some pass-through entities, such as partnerships, file composite income tax returns each year on Form RI-1040C, “Composite Income Tax?Return.” The form is typically filed to report a nonresident owner’s share of Rhode Island source income. The entity computes the Rhode Island personal income tax and pays it on behalf of the nonresident partner/owner/shareholder/.

If such an entity wants to make an estimated payment for 2018 – and make it before the end of 2017, the entity should file the 2018 version of Form RI-1040C-ES, “Composite Income Tax Estimated Payment.” The 2018 version is available here.

Send the completed 2018 coupon, along with a check or money order, to:
