Further Considerations

  • The integrated e-file and e-pay debit/credit card option is available through a number of tax preparation software products and tax professionals. Refer to tax preparation software or your tax professional to find out if the debit/credit card option is available and for more information about it.
  • It's convenient – file early and make a payment by debit/credit card later. The payment date will be the date the charge is authorized.
  • Need an extension? If you pay part ($1 minimum) or all of the tax you estimate you will owe using a debit/credit card, you will not need to file an extension form, such as Form 4868. Your payment will act as the extension.
  • Some tax preparation software may allow partial payments. Multiple payments cannot be made through tax preparation software.
