You don’t need to send in a voucher if you pay by card. Card processing fees are tax deductible for business taxes. You must contact the card processor to cancel a card payment. IRS will refund any overpayment unless you owe a debt on your account. Your card statement will list your payment as “United States Treasury Tax Payment” and your fee as “Tax Payment Convenience Fee” or something similar. Federal tax lien releases can take up to 30 days after we receive full payment; liens may remain for other individuals who haven’t fully paid their portion. When you pay while electronically filing your taxes, different card fees apply.
