Federal Income Tax payments

Will you owe income tax this year?  In addition to making payments by check with a voucher for your income tax liability, there are other ways to pay.

Payment Options

Direct Pay on

IRS partners with approved 3rd party credit processors to allow individuals to pay their tax bill by credit card.  These services do charge fees and also note any restrictions that may apply to your situation.

Pay by Credit Card

Use Direct Pay to pay an individual tax bill directly through your bank account on IRS’ website.  Pay your 1040 tax bill, past or present, make your quarterly estimated tax payments, or look up your previous payments, through their convenient website.

Pay through your EFTPS account

EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System) is a free, secure, convenient way to make any type of tax payment.  If you already have an EFTPS you can pay your income tax liability through this account.  If you don’t have an account, it is free to set up.

IRS2GO Mobile App

  • April 15th
  • June 15th
  • September 15th
