However, you don't have to make this payment if you file your 2012 return (Form 1040) and pay any tax due by Feb. 1, 2013.
January 15, 2013. Farmers and fishermen.
Pay your estimated tax for 2012 using Form 1040-ES or pay by credit card or by EFTPS. You can then file your 2012 income tax return (Form 1040) by Apr. 15. If you don't pay at this time, your 2012 return will be due Mar. 1, 2013.
