Electronic Payments

Choose Direct Debit or Credit Card to Pay Your Taxes

Your tax bill can be paid to the IRS either through a direct debit of your bank account or through a charge to your credit card.  Direct debit or payment by credit card are a convenient, safe, and secure way to pay your taxes.

Why pay by Direct Debit?

It’s Free!  There are no additional charges for tax payment transactions.

When you e-file your tax return you can e-pay your taxes in a single step by authorizing an electronic funds withdrawal  or direct debit from your bank account to cover the full amount of your tax liability.

It’s Convenient

  1. You can e-file your balance due return early and schedule your payment for withdrawal on a future date.
    • Payments, except for Form 1040ES, can be scheduled for an effective date up to and including the return due date (April 15th)
    • An estimated payment can be scheduled to be paid up to and including November 22nd
  2. The IRS automatically withdraws funds, based on the payment date you select.
  3. You can make a Form 4868 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return) payment when you file Form 4868 electronically

It’s Safe and Secure!

  1. You receive an electronic acknowledgment once your IRS e-file return is accepted.
  2. The tax payment is listed on your bank statement as further proof of payment.
  3. Your bank account information is safely stored along with other tax information.
  4. The IRS is only authorized to make the withdrawals you specify.

Why Pay Your IRS Tax by Credit Card?

It’s Convenient!

  1. You can e-file early and, by making a credit card payment, delay out-of-pocket expenses.
  2. You can e-file (or mail a paper return) and initiate a payment by phone or Internet.
  3. If you choose to use your credit card to pay the IRS for your taxes, you will notice a fee in addition to your charge on your credit card statement. This fee is not paid to the IRS or to E-File Tax Returns, it is paid to the company processing the credit card transaction to cover their processing costs.
  4. You can also make Form 4868 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return) and Form 1040-ES (Estimated Tax for Individuals) payments by phone and Internet.
  5. In addition, you may earn miles, points, rewards or money back from your credit card issuer.

It’s Safe and Secure!

  1. You receive an electronic acknowledgment once your e-file return is accepted and the credit card transaction is authorized.
  2. If you pay by phone or Internet, you receive a confirmation number at the end of the transaction.
  3. The tax payment is listed on your credit card billing statement as further proof of payment.
  4. The IRS does not receive or store credit card numbers.
