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 below options and choose one that is 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 also gives you instant confirmation after you make a payment.
  • Debit or Credit Card – allows 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 – available for both individuals and businesses. Once enrolled, you can pay your taxes online or by phone. This free system provides security, convenience and accuracy!
  • Electronic Funds Withdrawal – 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 the time they are due, 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.
