E-Filing - Direct Debit Not Set Up

If the return that was accepted by the IRS did not contain valid banking information for a direct debit of the amount due (information entered either through the electronic filing steps or on the Electronic Filing Worksheet), you have the following payment options available to you:

  1. Pay your taxes electronically by using the free Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) via the internet or phone.

    Note. You must enroll in the system before making a payment.

  2. You may pay your tax due by credit card through the 3rd-party website, paytaxusa.com.
  3. You may also print the payment voucher (Form 1040-V) from the return and mail your tax due to the IRS by check.
  1. From within your TaxAct Online return, click Print Center in the left column.
  2. Click Custom
  3. Click the checkbox(es) to the left of what you wish to print (the top section contains individual forms or schedules and the bottom section contains documents or worksheets). You may need to scroll down in the section to locate the item. 
  4. Click Print and then click the PDF link. Click the printer icon or the save icon (available when you hover your mouse over the bottom of the PDF form) to print or save the PDF copy.
Note: If you see a message indicating you have not paid your return fees, click the View/Pay link, which will direct you through the Paper filing steps. Continue through the screens until you have processed the payment for your product fees and then repeat the steps to print.
