do you have to pay estimated tax on gains

  1. I am new to trading.

    I read something about quarterly estimated tax payments.

    I think it's only if you file as self-employed or trade through an LLC or something. Is that right?

    I assumed I could add any capital gains to my end of year income from working and file it all at once.

    I don't want to get in trouble so figured I would double check........

    Thank you
