How Can You Pay The IRS | Exploring IRS Payment Options

When it comes to payment options for tax obligations such as the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT), the IRS provides four primary methods for taxpayers:

  • Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)
  • Credit or Debit Card
  • Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS)
  • Check

Credit or Debit Card

This option allows you to pay taxes using a credit or debit card. The IRS accepts major credit cards like Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. You can initiate the payment either online or by phone.

However, processing fees may apply while using this payment method.

Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW)

EFW is an exclusive electronic payment option the IRS provides for taxpayers who e-file their 2290 tax returns. When utilizing EFW for your HVUT payment, the IRS will directly withdraw the owed amount from your bank account within 1 or 2 business days after transmitting your Form 2290.

To proceed with EFW, you must provide accurate bank account details, including the bank account and routing numbers. It is crucial to verify this information carefully to avoid any potential rejection of your Form 2290 due to errors in the routing number.

Remember that this method will take 1-2 business days to get the payment approved, so if you choose this method, don’t wait till the deadline to file your HVUT.

Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS)

EFTPS is a reliable payment option allowing filers to schedule and initiate their tax payments. After e-filing your Form 2290 online, you must visit www.eftps.gov to schedule the payment through EFTPS.

Regardless of your payment status, you will instantly receive your stamped Schedule 1 upon filing. If you don't have an EFTPS account, you can create one for free by visiting www.eftps.gov or contacting 1-800-555-4477. It's important to note that setting up an EFTPS account may take approximately 10-15 days.

Remember to schedule your EFTPS payment by at least 8 p.m. EST on the day before the due date to ensure your payment is processed within the deadline. This will help ensure a timely and accurate payment transaction.

Check or Money Order

If you prefer to send your HVUT payment directly to the IRS, you can choose the Check or Money Order option. After filing, you will receive your stamped Schedule 1 immediately, regardless of your payment status. However, ensuring that your payment reaches the IRS before the 2290 deadline is important.

Here's what you need to do:

  • Make the payment payable to the United States Treasury.
  • Do not send cash.
  • Include your Employer Identification Number (EIN), First Used Month (FUM), tax year, and "Form 2290" on the Check or Money Order.
  • Print and include the 2290-V payment voucher from Form 2290, avoiding staples or paperclips.
  • Use the U.S. Postal Service to send your payment to the specified IRS address.

It’s the right choice since you get Immediate availability of your stamped Schedule 1 upon filing, even if the payment hasn't been sent. Also, you can decide when to pay the tax due to the IRS before the deadline.

However, it requires drafting a physical payment and mailing it. Also, you need access to a printer for the 2290-V payment voucher, with possible additional mailing charges.
