Different Options for Paying Your Taxes

To prepare for this upcoming tax season, you will have to decide which method you want to use to pay your taxes. Here are a few of the main methods that you can choose from:

1) Direct Pay

The first way is through a direct payment to the government, usually in the form of a check or cashier’s check. This method is usually easiest for people filing paper returns.

2) Electronic Funds Withdrawal

The next method is to have the money directly taken out of your bank account (checking or savings account). For people filing electronically, this is a great way of doing things as well.

3) Credit or Debit Card

The last method of payment you can look at is using a credit or debit card to pay your balance online. This method is usually very convenient for people who are used to paying with cards, but will also incur a processing fee associated with the transaction.
