If you owe federal tax, the IRS offers several electronic payment options. The electronic options are easy, secure and much quicker than mailing in a check or money order. Check out the following options and choose the one that’s right for you.
• IRS Direct Pay offers individuals a free, secure and easy way to pay. You pay your federal tax directly from your checking or savings account. You don’t need to register, write a check or find a mailbox. Direct Pay gives you instant confirmation after you make a payment.
• Debit or Credit Card payments allow you to choose an approved payment processor to make a tax payment online, by phone or by mobile device. It’s safe and secure. The payment processor will charge a processing fee. The fees vary by service provider and may be tax deductible. No part of the fee goes to the IRS.
• Electronic Federal Tax Payment System is available for both individual and businesses. When enrolled, you can pay your taxes online or by phone. This free system provides security, convenience and accuracy.
• Electronic Funds Withdrawal is available only when you are e-filing your tax return. You can make payments directly from your bank account.
• Check or Money Order if you choose to mail your tax payment.
• If you cannot pay your taxes in full at this time, you can apply for an Online Payment Agreement if you owe $50,000 or less in combined tax, penalties and interest, and filed all required returns. You may also qualify for a short-term agreement if your balance is under $100,000.
