Check Your Balance and View Your Payment History

You can view your balance online or refer to the information in the notice you received to determine the amount you owe. When you access your tax account you can also view your recent payment history.

Prevent Future Tax Liabilities

You can reduce or even eliminate a balance due after filing, by adjusting your withholding amount or making estimated payments. 

The IRS Withholding Calculator can help you adjust the amount withheld from your pay by your employer, in order to reduce or eliminate your balance due. 

Estimated tax is the method you use to pay tax on income that is not subject to withholding, such as self-employment income.
