      You pay interest on the amount of underpayment based upon an IRS schedule.

      If you are a business and file quarterly and underestimate your taxes for the quarter and end up owing more then you paid then whether you have to pay a penalty depends on how far off your estimate was from the amount of taxes paid the previous year.
