Do you owe taxes?
If you owe taxes, it’s always good to pay as much as you can to minimize interest and penalties. The IRS offers a variety of electronic payment options to help you do just that.
One of the more popular options is IRS Direct Pay. You can pay your tax bill directly from a checking or savings account at no cost, and receive instant confirmation when you submit your payment. It’s flexible as well, allowing you to schedule your payment up to 30 days in advance with the option to change or cancel your payment two business days before the payment date. You can also pay by debit or credit card. The IRS does not charge a fee but convenience fees apply and vary by processor.
These tools are available 24/7 on the IRS.gov website or through our IRS2Go mobile app. You can download IRS2Go from Google Play, the Apple App Store or the Amazon App Store.
If you need more time to pay, the Online Payment Agreement tool may be the right option for you. To qualify, you must be:
• A taxpayer who owes $50,000 or less in combined tax, penalties and interest, and have filed all required returns, or
• A business owner who owes $25,000 or less in combined tax, penalties and interest for the current year or last year’s liabilities, and have filed all required returns
