You have four options for paying the tax due on your federal tax return electronically. TaxAct fees must be paid using a credit card.
Direct Withdrawal. You can authorize an electronic funds withdrawal (direct debit) from your checking or savings account. Once you've prepared your return, enter your bank's routing number and your checking or savings account number. You can then schedule an automatic withdrawal for a future date up to the individual tax filing deadline.
EFTPS. Any individual taxpayer making payments for Form 1040 or installment payments can use EFTPS-OnLine.
Credit Card. The IRS does not accept credit card payments directly. If you wish to pay by credit card, visit PayUSA to complete the payment. A processing fee of 2.49% will apply.
Check or money order. Taxpayers who prefer to pay by check or money order should file Form 1040-V, Payment Voucher.
Pay with Cash (PayNearMe). Taxpayers who prefer to pay by cash can visit participating 7-Eleven locations to pay by cash. There can be a processing time of five to seven days, so plan accordingly to meet your due date. You must initiate your payment online, at the IRS Official Payments site.
