Payments - Tax payments made easy

If you get a tax bill from the IRS, don’t ignore it. A delay may cost you more in the long run.
The longer you wait, the more interest and penalties you may have to pay. It’s simple to make
payments using IRS electronic payment options.

Here’s some information to help you pay and avoid those extra charges:

  • Pay electronically. IRS electronic payment options are quick, easy and secure. You also
    get a record of your payment. Your options include:
    • IRS Direct Pay
    • Electronic Federal Tax Payment System
    • Credit or debit card
  • Direct Pay is a free service. If you pay by credit or debit card, the company
    that processes your payment will charge a fee.
  • Pay monthly if you can’t pay in full. If you can’t pay all at once, apply for a payment plan.
