How To File: Apply For A Tax Extension 2018 - 2019

IRS Income Tax Payment Options

The IRS offers several methods by which taxpayers can make their income tax payments electronically or by U.S. postal mail.

It is important to remember that a tax extension does NOT grant you more time to pay any taxes that are still owed.

To avoid penalty and interest charges, make sure you pay your taxes before the April 15th income tax filing deadline so that Uncle Sam wont come calling!

For individual taxpayer, The IRS offers you a free, secure payment method called Direct Pay.

Pay IRS Taxes Directly from Your Bank Account

you can use direct pay which is a secure IRS service that allows individual taxpayers to pay their tax bill or estimated tax payment directly from a savings or checking account without any other service fee. When you use this service you will receive an instant confirmation from the IRS once your payment has been submitted. The IRS does NOT retain your bank info in their system.

With Direct Pay, the Look Up a Payment Feature allows you to view your payment and status details online.

Pay IRS Taxes With Your Debit Or Credit Card

You can also choose to pay your taxes using a debit or credit card. This method can be completed online, by phone, or using a mobile device. These methods are available regardless of whether you e-file, paper file or are responding to a bill or notice from the IRS.

The IRS uses safe and secure standard service providers and your information is only used to process your tax payment. Payment processor fees vary based on the payment service provider you choose.

Pay Using The U.S. Department of Treasury Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS)

The EFTPS® System can be used to pay federal income taxes electronically on the Internet, or by phone using voice response.

Pay Income Taxes By Electronic Funds Withdrawal

The Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) option is an integrated e-file/e-pay option offered through tax preparation software and tax professionals. This payment option provides a direct debit from your bank account.

Same-Day Wire Federal Income Tax Payments

Another option is a same-day wire transfer payment from your bank or other Financial Institution. This requires you to prepare a Same-Day Taxpayer Worksheet. Contact your financial institution for any costs associated with this federal tax payment method.

Pay Your Income Taxes By Check or Money Order

You can also choose to mail your income tax payment to the IRS. Include your name, address, daytime phone number, Social Security number or employer identification number.

Mail your tax payment to the proper IRS tax payment address based on your state of residency. It is important to use the correct. Sending your tax payments to the wrong IRS address may result in processing delays that could result in late fees and interest charges.

Use Form 1040-V (Payment Voucher) to pay the amount due on your Form 1040, Form 1040A, or Form 1040EZ. If you owe money on your tax balance, you can make your payment by mailing a check or money order to the IRS.
