Making timely payments to the IRS can be both stressful and somewhat of a hassle. Instead of dealing with payment vouchers, checks and the post office you may want to consider making your payment online. The IRS does offer a secure service to pay your estimated payments or personal tax bill via Direct Pay on the IRS website.
To pay directly from your checking or savings account, simply go to https://www.irs.gov/Payments/Direct-Pay and follow the easy to navigate instructions. You will receive instant confirmation that your payment has been accepted, plus you can follow up online to view payment details and status. There is no fee to use this feature.
However, if you would like to pay with a credit card there is a fee incurred with this service. The fees vary by the individual processor, but none of the extra fee goes to the IRS and they can sometimes be tax deductible. For a list of IRS approved processors and additional information please visit https://www.irs.gov/uac/Pay-Taxes-by-Credit-or-Debit-Card.
Please feel free to contact the office at 541.388.7888 with any questions, comments or concerns.
