Received a bill from the IRS but not sure exactly how to pay it? We got you covered.
The IRS offers several ways to pay – immediately or in installments. If you have received a bill from the IRS, we urge you not to ignore it. Delaying to pay will accrue more costs in interest and penalties.
You can pay tax bills directly from a checking/savings account for free on IRS Direct Pay. You will receive immediate confirmation once you pay. You can even schedule a payment up to 30 days in advance, and edit/cancel it at least 2 days before the scheduled payment date.
You can also pay your bill with a credit/debit card online, by phone, or with a mobile app. The IRS won’t charge you a fee, but a convenient fee may apply by processor. To learn how to use the IRS mobile app, check out our blog post “There’s an App for That!” by clicking here.
Can’t pay your tax bill immediately? You may be able to make monthly payments. Before you can, you must have filed all required tax returns.
You qualify to apply for a monthly installment agreement if…
- You are an individual and owe less than $50,000 in combined tax, penalties, and interest
- You have filed all required returns
- You are a business that owes $25,000 or less in combined tax, penalties, and interest for the current year or last year’s liabilities
So go ahead, pay the man
If only we could do this with taxes…
