IRS Offers Various Options to Pay Your Tax Bill

If you owe federal tax, the IRS offers many ways to pay. Make sure you pay by the April 18 deadline, even if you get an extension of time to file your 2015 tax return.  Here are some of the ways to pay your tax:

  • Use Direct PayIRS Direct Pay offers taxpayers a free, secure and easy way to pay. You can schedule a payment in advance to pay your 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.
  • Pay by Debit or Credit Card.  Choose a 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.
  • Use IRS2Go. IRS2Go  is a free app that you can use to make a payment with Direct Pay and by debit or credit card. Simply download IRS2Go from Google Play, the Apple App Store or Amazon.
  • Pay When You E-File. If you file your federal tax return electronically, you can schedule a payment at the time that you file. You can pay directly from your bank account, Electronic Funds Withdrawal. You choose the date and amount of the payment, and as long as it is on or before April 18, it will be on time. Some software that you use to e-file also allows you to pay by debit or credit card with a processing fee.
