1040-ES - there are four vouchers. I believe you can do it online through EFPTS or soemthing like that.

Assuming your state has an income tax, you will need to use those forms as well.

yes the last payment is due 1/15 however, you do not have to make the payment due on January 15, 2016, if you file your 2015 tax return by February 1, 2016 and pay the entire balance due with your return.

Thanks for the links TaxPro. I'm gonna need a bit more specifics though. So i neeed to do an estimated payment for the last quarter of 2015 and use a 1040 ES ? (4th quarter only ) Also, can you please help clear up the self employment issue and what forms need to be filled by when ?

Estimated tax (1040ES) is the method used to pay Social Security and Medicare taxes and income tax. You've got 2 options 1. Like you said you need to file (and pay) 1040ES for 2015 income by 1/15. After that you can file your 1040 up to April 15 or file for an extension. When you file your 1040 you will need a schedule SE and schedule C .
Option 2. File your 1040 with schedule SE and schedule C by 2/1/16 with all self employment and income tax payments included. If you take this option you don't have to send in a 1040ES payment by 1/15 like in option 1

Gotcha, i already have another small business, so this part isn't new. I don't see my earnings from Lyft though. Is it because i made a small amount ?
Only had a small number of rides for them. The vast amount were Uber. Any thoughts ? Thanks!
