What are my IRS payment options?

There are many options available to you to pay your federal and state income taxes.  The Blau Company, Ltd. always provides addressed envelopes, which clients can use to pay their taxes, but what if you don’t want to waste the postage?

Internal Revenue Service

The Internal Revenue Service allows many ways to pay your taxes:

Direct Pay

Use this secure service to pay your tax bill or make estimated tax payments directly from your bank account.  This free service allows you to make your payment without setting up an account, logging in, or remembering a password. Payments can be made for multiple different tax years for the following forms:

  • Installment Agreement Payment (1993-Current)
  • Estimated Tax Payments
  • Payment for Adjusted Balance Due (e.g., Notice CP2000 or other audit adjustments)
  • Request for extension of time to file (in lieu of Form 4868)
  • Payment on a balance-due individual income tax return that was e-filed
  • Payment on an amended return

Pay by Credit or Debit Card

Certain service providers have contracted with the Internal Revenue Service to provide the ability to pay your taxes by credit card.  All services require a convenience fee.  This benefits those who wish to pay their taxes and earn rewards points, but you are basically paying for the rewards points with the credit card fees.  Though it is available, we do not recommend our clients pay taxes using this method.

Pay by Installment Agreement

For balances less than $50,000, the IRS allows taxpayers to establish an agreement to pay online  This method carries very low interest rates, and the payment can be direct-debited out of your bank account. The Online Payment Agreement Application is a simple and streamlined method of establishing an installment agreement.  To apply online, click here!
