70k a year and paid around 13k

If you paid around 13k on 70k income then that is around 18.5%. If they are asking you to make an additional payment of $1600, bringing total taxes paid to 14.6, then that would be close to 20%. Is the effective tax rate on your bracket about 20%? If so, then that's your answer.
