If you owe federal taxes, you should pay by the April deadline even if you get an extension. Here are some options for making your payment easy:
• Use Direct Pay. IRS Direct Pay is a free and secure way to pay directly from your checking or savings account.
• Pay by Debit or Credit Card. If you don’t want to link a bank account, you can use your credit or debit card. Keep in mind that you’ll have to pay a processing fee and may incur interest charges.
• Pay When You E-File. If you file your federal tax return electronically, you can pay directly from your bank account using Electronic Funds Withdrawal.
If you can’t pay the full amount that you owe now, you can set up a payment agreement to pay your taxes over time using direct debit.
For more information about filing your taxes, consult a qualified tax expert.
