IRS last week announced the successful start of its new web-based tax payment system – “IRS Direct Pay.” Commissioner Koskinen says “IRS Direct Pay simplifies the payment process, and taxpayers can make a payment from the convenience of a home computer.”
Thus far, more than 150,000 taxpayers have remitted more than $340 million in taxes through this system. Taxpayers receive instant confirmation of each payment via this system, which is available 24-7.
IRS says that bank account information is not retained – we’ll leave that assertion to you to take or leave.
If you’re interested, go to www.irs.gov, and locate the “pay your tax bill” icon, following the instructions from there.
