Instead of writing a check to the U.S. Treasury and mailing it, use an online payment option to simplify the payment process. Your choices:
- Sign up for EFTPS.gov. This free option lets you transfer funds from your bank account to the government. You can schedule tax payments in advance of the payment date.
- Charge taxes to a major credit or debit card. The government doesn’t charge you for using this payment method, but the IRS-approved service provider does. Find costs at www.irs.gov/uac/Pay-Taxes-by-Credit-or-Debit-Card.
