I have a question about estimated tax. Why we have to pay estimated tax and what is ti?


Probably my biggest question is why my estimated tax is 3 times higher that actual advertising costs???!


Foe example, i spend $2.50 on advertising but my estimated tax is $7.


Why is that?

Hello Miro L !


If your tax is 20% and you charged your account with 35 $ , this means that taxes for your paid amount is 7 $.

This does leave you with 35-7= 28 $ to spend in advertising. Take a look at your billing and see what amount it is in the "Balance" column.


This tax is applied for every payment, and rules are different from country to country.
