It is consistent with the other payments being due about 2 weeks after the end of the previous month so taxpayers have enough time to figure out what they need to pay. The 4th quarter's payment due date is probably the most important because many estimated taxpayers will receive year-end income on or about December 31st so they will need that time to figure out what they will owe.
Retired in late 2008 at age 45. Cashed in company stock, bought a lot of shares in a big bond fund and am living nicely off its dividends. IRA, SS, and a pension await me at age 60 and later. No kids, no debts.
