Do you owe taxes this year? To avoid processing fees, pay your balance due directly to the IRS or state using one of these methods.

Federal Taxes

Pay with IRS Direct Pay. You can schedule your payment up to 30 days in advance to pay directly out of a checking or savings account. You can submit your return now and schedule your payment for a later date. Any payments made before April 18th will be considered on time. No registration is required and there are no processing fees.

Pay with the IRS2Go app. The app will allow you to pay what you owe out of your bank account through their IRS Direct Pay service without fees, or with your debit or credit card through an approved payment processor (who will tack on their own processing fee).

Pay when you e-file. You can schedule a date for your payment to deduct from your bank account at the time your return is e-filed. Ask your tax professional.

Pay by mail. You can submit your payment to the IRS through the mail in the form of a check or money order. Payments must be postmarked by April 17th.

Can’t pay the entire balance? Apply online for an IRS payment plan. Penalties and interest will accrue on any balance outstanding after April 17th, 2018, and setup fees and processing fees may apply.

Connecticut Taxes

Pay the CT Department of Revenue Services directly. Using the Taxpayer Service Center, you can schedule your payment for any day up until the due date to electronically debit out of a bank account with no fees.

Pay by mail. You can mail a check or money order directly to the CT DRS, postmarked by April 17th.

Can’t pay the entire balance? Submit an installment agreement request using the Taxpayer Service Center. Penalties and interest will accrue on any balance outstanding after April 17th, 2018.
