Al Baqarah : Ayat 43
And be steadfast in prayer; give Zakat, and bow down your heads with those who bow down (in worship).
Al-Imran: Ayat 92
By no means shall ye attain righteousness unless ye give (freely) of that which ye love; and whatever ye give, Allah knoweth it well.
Narrated Abu Ayyub RA:
A man said to the Prophet (PBUH) "Tell me of such a deed as will make me enter Paradise." The people said, "What is the matter with him? What is the matter with him?" The Prophet (PBUH) said, "He has something to ask. (What he needs greatly) The Prophet (PBUH) said: (In order to enter Paradise) you should worship Allah and do not ascribe any partners to Him, offer prayer perfectly, pay the Zakat and keep good relations with your Kith and kin." (Sahih Bukhari - See Hadith No. 12, Vol 8).
Zakat is due once a year. It does not necessarily have to fulfilled in Ramadan but as the rewards are multiplied many folds in Ramadan, it is highly recommended to do it in this month to attain maximum rewards.

It is slightly complicated and one has to know few things before calculating what is due. This link answers basic terms and requirements -

And this is a simple zakah calculator -
