Can we auto withdraw Individual VA estimates? Search does yield any help

Answer

Great questions. The short answer is No. In Lacerte if you were to type in the search box in the upper right "e-file estimated" and click on search it would bring up this knowledge base for you:

Using the E-file Estimated Payment Wizard


The article states:

Individual Federal and Maine Estimates - can be sent electronically but they MUST be sent with the filing of the tax return.  They are not available in the Estimate Wizard.

Another great way to tell if you are able to send estimated payments through the program is in the file go to General> 3 Miscellaneous Information/Direct Deposit>Virginia Direct Deposit / Electronic Payment section and see if there is a checkbox for Electronic payment of estimated tax. For VA there is not.

People come to Accountants Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
