Paying with your Debit or Credit Card? Understand that:

  • Fees differ from those in the table above when you choose the integrated IRS e-file and e-pay option. View your options.
  • Not all IRS tax forms are eligible for payment by credit or debit card, and there are limits on how often you can make individual and business payments. Visit the frequency limit table by type of tax payment for details.
  • High balance payments of $100,000+ may require coordination with your provider.
  • You usually can’t cancel payments.
  • You can’t make Federal Tax Deposits.
  • You can't get an immediate release of a Federal Tax Lien. Refer to Publication 1468, Guidelines for Processing Notice of Federal Tax Lien Documents, for payment options.
  • This form of payment eliminates your need for a voucher.
  • Your card statement will list this payment as "United States Treasury Tax Payment." The convenience fee paid to your provider will be listed as "Tax Payment Convenience Fee" or something similar.
    • The fee is deductible for personal tax types as a miscellaneous itemized deduction. However, only those miscellaneous expenses that exceed 2 percent of the adjusted gross income can be deducted. For more information, refer to Publication 529, Miscellaneous Deductions.
    • For business tax types, the fee is a deductible business expense.
  • If you overpaid, IRS will refund it after the return is processed, excepting offsets or debt on your account.
