Online Payment Option Available for U.S. Residency Certification Fees

Now taxpayers who pay U.S. Residency Certification Fees can pay them online. The Internal Revenue Service announced this online payment option in IRS News Release 2007-48 and Revenue Procedure 2007-22, which was published in Internal Revenue Bulletin 2007-10, dated March 5, 2007.

Taxpayers access this payment option at the “Electronic Payment of User Fees” page on, review a list of user fees, and select the one for Form 8802. They are then taken to a web page that provides data about the user fee, its fee schedule and calculation. Taxpayers provide the requested data and click on the “Submit” button. They then receive a confirmation number that must be included on page 1 of their Form 8802 prior to mailing. The IRS uses this confirmation number to verify payment and avoid processing delays.
