The IRS is doing their best to make it easier for individuals and businesses to pay their taxes by July 15th.
OfficialPayments.com and the PayNearMe Company allows taxpayers to make a payment without a bank account or credit card at participating 7-Eleven stores, Ace Cash Express and Casey’s General Stores nationwide.
“We continuously look for ways to enhance the services we provide for our taxpayers,” said IRS Wage and Investment Division Commissioner Ken Corbin. “The IRS offers many ways for taxpayers to pay their tax bills including direct debit, credit card and through electronic funds withdrawal when filing electronically.
Because PayNearMe involves a three-step process, the IRS urges taxpayers choosing this option to start the process well ahead of the tax deadline to avoid interest and penalty charges.
The IRS reminds individuals without the need to pay in cash that there are other ways to pay online, by phone or with a mobile device and the IRS2Go app. IRS Direct Pay is a secure online payment option that allows taxpayers to pay directly from their bank accounts for free.
The IRS reminds taxpayers to watch out for email schemes. Taxpayers will only receive an email from OfficialPayments.com or PayNearMe if they have initiated the payment process.
