Taxpayers who owe additional tax must pay their balance due by the original due date of the return (usually April 15th) or be subject to interest and penalties. An extension of time to file may be filed electronically by the original return due date, but it is an extension of time to file the return, not an extension of time to pay a balance due.
There are several choices when paying a balance due:
- Pay by Check: Taxpayers may pay the balance due by mailing a check with Form 1040-V, Payment Voucher.
- Electronic Funds Withdraw: Taxpayers can, at the same time as e-filing, choose to have the balance due withdrawn from their bank account on a date that they choose on or before April 15th. In order to do so, please provide your bank account information and chosen date. We will need this information prior to e-filing the return.
- Credit or Debit Card Payments: Taxpayers can pay by internet, phone, or mobile device whether you e-file, paper file or are responding to a bill or notice. Please visit the IRS website for more information and a list of payment processors.
- Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS): Individual taxpayers, who make more than one tax payment per year, particularly installment or Form 1040 estimated payments, can enroll in EFTPS. Please visit EFTPS.com for more information
