Several payment options are available where taxpayers can pay immediately. Taxpayer should not ignore a bill from the IRS because as more time passes, interest and penalties accumulate.
Some ways to make payments:
- Direct Pay. Can pay tax bills directly from a checking or savings account free. Taxpayers receive instant confirmation. With Direct Pay, you can schedule payment up to 30 days in advance.
- Credit or Debit Cards. Taxpayers can pay their taxes by debit or credit cards online, by phone or with a mobile device. Convenience fees apply and vary depending on the card used.
- Installment Agreement. Taxpayers unable to pay their tax debt immediately may be able to make monthly payments. Before applying, taxpayers must file all required tax returns.
