How can I make my IRS payment?

If you owe the IRS taxes on your 1040, there are several payment options available to you including electronic payments.

Payment options include:

  • Direct Pay: This free online tool allows individuals to pay their income tax directly from bank accounts without any fees or pre-registration. Any taxpayer who uses the tool receives instant confirmation that their payment was submitted.
  • Electronic Federal Tax Payment System: This free service gives taxpayers a safe and convenient way to pay individual and business taxes by phone or online. To enroll or for more information, call 800-316-6541 or visit www.eftps.gov.
  • Electronic funds withdrawal: E-file and e-pay in a single step.
  • Credit or debit card: Both paper and electronic filers can pay their taxes by phone or online through any of several authorized credit and debit card processors. Though the IRS does not charge a fee for this service, the card processors do
  • Same-day wire federal tax payments: You can verify with your Financial Instituition if they are able to do same-day wire. There maybe cut-off times and costs
  • Check or money order: Make your check or money order payable to “U.S. Treasury”. Also, print on the front of the check or money order: “2016 Form 1040”; name; address; daytime phone number; and Social Security number. To help insure that the payment is credited promptly, also enclose a Form 1040-V payment voucher.
  • Cash: It can take up to seven days to have yourself set up to make a cash payment. Please read all the steps carefully on the IRS site.
