How to Make Tax Payments to the Internal Revenue Service
Have you been trying to find out how to pay the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) online or if you can pay federal taxes by credit card?
Individual and business taxpayers can make payments to the IRS in many ways.
The IRS accepts tax and penalty payments from all businesses including corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies (LLC). When paying by credit or debit card, the IRS accepts Discover, MasterCard, Visa, American Express Card, and more . The IRS uses various third–party credit card processors, who charge a convenience fee for this service.
The Internal Revenue Service offers taxpayers the following ways to pay their back taxes, estimated tax payments, extension payments, or the amount due on their current year tax returns.
- Direct Pay - For individuals who want to pay from their bank account.
- Credit Card or Debit Card – Pay online or by phone. Convenience fee applies.
- EFTPS (Electronic Payment Federal Tax System) - Free online system. Registration required.
- Mail – Send check or money order to the IRS office where you file. Look up filing locations here.
- In-person – Hand deliver check or money order to the IRS office nearest you. Look up local offices here.
