 What You Need to Know:

Tax payment is an unavoidable part of many citizens’ lives. If you’re not able to pay the tax you owe by your original filing due date, the balance is subject to interest and a monthly late payment penalty. Remember, it’s always in your best interest to pay in full as soon as you can to minimize the additional charges.

Short-Term Payment PlansIf you can’t pay in full immediately, you may qualify for additional time -up to 180 days- to pay in full. There’s no fee for this full payment; however, interest and any applicable penalties continue to accrue until your liability is paid in full.
