Hey there truckers, almost on a daily basis our users calls us to report about an issue, that despite making the IRS tax due payment using credit card, received a letter from the IRS stating a non-tax payment. In the first place, many tax payers still assume that making the IRS tax payment using the credit/debit card is an automated process. But it’s really not.
Generally when you e-file your tax return, you get 4 different tax payment options to make the tax due payment to the IRS, namely
- Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)
- Electronic Federal tax Payment System (EFTPS)
- Using your Credit Card/Debit Card
- By Check or Money Order
Now Among the above 4 options, the Credit/Debit Card Payment was recently introduced by the IRS. Hence, many tax payers are not really sure how this payment option works. But it’s really simple than we assume.
Misconception Scenario 1:
Tax Payers assume that Credit/Debit Card is an automated process.
Many tax payers assume that by choosing the option credit/debit card the IRS might automatically process the payment of their card. However, in reality the IRS insists the tax payers to log on to their official website, https://www.irs.gov/payments/pay-taxes-by-credit-or-debit-card then choose one of their 3 approved processors website to make the payment directly to the IRS. At the end of this process, tax payers will be given a confirmation number indicating a successful withdrawal. Although Failure to make the tax payment on time might result in incurring penalties & extra interests.
Note: This service is been offered by the processors with additional service charge inclusive.
Misconception Scenario 2:
Now this misconception does not seem to arise on the tax payer’s end rather on the IRS end. Many tax payers have recently received notices from the IRS indicating a non-tax payment despite of making prompt payment using credit card following the steps as mentioned above. On this note, the tax payer need not panic, instead contact the Internal Revenue Service on the phone number described in the notice to let them have your confirmation number to officially withdraw the notice back.
More over the E-Filing process is simple and elegant. It only consumes few minutes before you complete the whole e-filing process. Simply register yourself on this application and enter your vehicle information followed by the tax payment option then you’d be able to transmit your tax return to the IRS post making the service fee payment to our website using your Credit card.
As a result of e-filing, you will be able to receive the IRS digital watermarked copy of Schedule 1 back in your registered e-mail address within minutes after you e-file. The same copy will nicely serve as the proof of filing to take care of tags, licenses renewed during your vehicle registration.
