At the end of this month I'll probably open TurboTax and check things once again, before the Sept 15th estimated payment.
Another option is to increase W2 withholding beyond zero deductions. You can specify zero deductions AND a set $$ amount to be deducted. Just an alternative to estimated taxes.

Yes, that is correct, but not my practice. Others may be more comfortable with paying an extra set amount through the employer.
