Know before you choose the IRS tax payment while e-filing your 2290!

Hello there HVUT payers, we hope this article reaches you with high spirits. Now over this article we are going to discuss the most common misconception that arise among the HVUT payers while choosing the right IRS tax payment option while e-filing their HVUT Form 2290.

As you know, while e-filing your HVUT Form 2290 you got 4 different options in order to make the tax payment to the IRS. Namely

  1. Electronic Funds Withdrawal
  2. Electronic Federal Tax Payment System
  3. Credit or Debit Card
  4. Check or Money Order

Amongst the 4 above option, only via Electronic Funds withdrawal the IRS will be able to process the tax payment automatically. Rest other options require your action to logon to the respective website and schedule payments to the U.S. Department of Treasury.

Recently the IRS began accepting tax payments using Credit/Debit cards. Since, then many HVUT payers are prone to misconception based on their assumption that paying the IRS tax payment using credit/debit card is an automated process but in reality it’s not. Hence, by far many HVUT payers have received a letter from the IRS stating a non-tax payment due to the ignorance of the tax payers.

So, inured for you to be able to make the IRS tax due payment using your credit/debit card you must log on to https://www.irs.gov/payments/pay-taxes-by-credit-or-debit-card and choose one of the 3 payment processors who support tax payment using card.
