Although for 2019 there is an automatic extension to file and pay taxes, if you owe, til July 15, 2020, if you do file sooner you can pay and set up payment plans all from the IRS.gov site. The IRS offers several easy ways to pay taxes. Taxpayers can pay online, by phone or with their mobile device using the IRS2Go app, just to name a few.
Here are some options to pay:
- Pay when you e-file using their bank account, at no charge, using electronic funds withdrawal.
- Use IRS Direct Pay which allows taxpayers to pay electronically directly from their checking or savings account for free. They can choose to receive email notifications about their payments when they pay this way. Taxpayers should watch out for email schemes. IRS Direct Pay sends emails only to users who request the service.
- Pay using a payment processor by credit card, debit card or digital wallet options. Taxpayers can make these payments online, by phone or through the IRS2Go app.
- Pay over time by applying for an online payment agreement. Once the IRS accepts an agreement, the taxpayers can make their payment in monthly installments.
