Use the worksheet to calculate the 2020 interest you owe. We will charge interest on any unpaid tax and penalty after April 15, 2021.

The interest rate is determined each year. The interest rate for 2020 is 5%.

1.   Tax not paid by April 15, 2021   


_________________

2.   Late payment penalty* — multiply step 1 by 4% (.04)

  _________________
3.   Late filing penalty. If you are filing your return after October 15, 2021, multiply step 1 by 5% (.05)   _________________

4.   Extended delinquency. If your tax is not paid within 180 days after filing your return, multiply step 1 by 5% (.05)

  _________________

5.   Add steps 1 through 4

  _________________

6.   Number of days the tax is late **

  _________________

7.   Enter the applicable interest rate. For 2021, the rate is 5% (.05)

  _________________

8.   Multiply step 6 by step 7

  _________________

9.   Divide step 8 by 365 (carry to five decimal places)

  _________________

10. Interest — multiply step 5 by step 9

11. Total payment amount. Add step 5 and step 10

  _________________

*If you are filing your return after April 15, 2021, and paid at least 90% of your total tax by the due date, you will not be
charged the late payment penalty if you file your return and pay any remaining tax by October 15, 2021.

**If the days fall in more than one calendar year, determine steps 6 through 10 separately for each year.
