Regardless of the kind of tax you need to pay, it can be paid online. The IRS allows taxpayers to make tax payments via Direct Pay and third-part payment processors. While you can pay on Direct Pay using your bank account, IRS-approved third-part payment processors only accept payments online with a debit or credit card.
Although there aren’t going to be fees when paying taxes online with bank account, there is a small processing fee for paying with credit cards. This is because you won’t be paying directly to the IRS. You will pay taxes on the payment processor’s website.
As for the fees, it depends on the payment processor you choose to pay. The fees are about $2 flat for debit cards and 1.75% for credit cards.
Below, you can see in detail how to pay taxes online with your bank account and credit card.
