COVID-19 Update:

The IRS and the U.S. Treasury department have extended the federal filing and tax payment deadlines to July 15, 2020.

For more information:


No matter when you file, any federal taxes due must be paid by the filing deadline for your return. The IRS accepts payment in multiple ways, even when you have already filed your return.

You may still pay your taxes using the free Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) via the internet or phone, by credit card, or mail in a paper check. You can find information on the available options below:

  1. EFTPS System
    • Pay by Phone or Internet
  2. Pay by Debit or Credit Card
    • Please note: The listed 3rd Party Processors are authorized by the IRS to collect tax due. Convenience fees are displayed, and can vary based on card types, provider, and filing options chosen.
  3. Mail Paper Check
    • Print the Form 1040-V (Payment Voucher) and mail your amount due to the IRS.  Instructions for printing the individual form can be found using the link above.
  4. Direct Debit
    • Option for Direct Debit from Checking or Savings Account.
  5. PayNearMe
    • Option for paying with cash at specific retail locations.

Note. If you are paying your taxes owed late, submit the amount your return shows as due. The IRS may assess penalties and interest, and will bill you via mail after your return and payment have been processed.

Note. If you pay your taxes prior to filing, choose the option to mail a check during the filing steps.
