If you owe taxes as an individual filer, there is an easy way to get them paid. Direct Pay is now offered by the IRS.
Direct Pay is a free online tool that can be used to pay taxes from a checking or savings account without any fees or pre-registration. There are many current users with over 2.8 million tax payments totaling over $6.3 billion having been received from individual taxpayers since Direct Pay was rolled out last year during tax season.
This tool allows for one or quarterly payments and payments can be scheduled up to 30 days in advance. Once a payment is made, the taxpayer will receive immediate confirmation of the submitted payment. Direct Pay is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
To access Direct Pay, simply visit IRS.gov/directpay.
Direct Pay cannot be used to pay the federal highway use tax, payroll taxes, or other business taxes. Taxpayers who would like to pay their federal business taxes electronically should enroll in the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System.
