    On my tax form 1040 for 2018 I indicated that all amount on line 19 ($1703) will be applied to my 2019 estimated tax.
    Unexpectedly I received a refund check from Treasury for $1703.
    My question is:
    Can I just cash this check and don’t use $1703 as credit in the 2019 tax return
    Or
    I have to call IRS ?

    Thanks.

    Don’t know what the right answer is ……but I’d probably try calling them so you’re on the same page. They were surprisingly easy to get the one time I tried during tax season. Don’t know the situation post-season.
