Estimated tax has to be filed by anyone with non withheld income. This is readily available knowledge on the irs website. Its not your money once uncle Sam taxes it. It is the irs's money the moment you earn it. Out of courtesy, they loan it to you for a quarter but it is certainly not 'your money'. We shouldnt brag about not paying the same tax everyone else pays.

If this makes you mad, perhaps you'd be interested in lobbying for lower taxes
