The tax due amount you to the IRS must be paid to the IRS before the Form 941 filing deadline. And, the IRS accepts multiple payment methods. Use any one of the methods to pay the tax due:
- Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW): This option is available only for the taxpayers whose balance due is less than or equal to $2500. You just have to provide your bank account information, and the IRS will debit the tax due amount from your account directly in 1 or 2 business days after you e-file your Form 941.
- Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS): Once you file your return with the IRS, you must log in to your EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System) account and initiate the required payment. For an EFTPS deposit to be on time, submit the deposit by 8 p.m. EST the day before the date the deposit is due. If you don’t have an EFTPS account, you may have to create a new account, which will take up to 15 business days.
- Check or Money Order: After you file Form 941 with the IRS, you can send the tax due by check or money order. Please make sure you are enclosing the payment voucher along with your check or money order. If you e-file Form 941 with ExpressEfile, the payment voucher will be generated for you.
- Credit/Debit Card: The IRS uses standard service providers and business/commercial card networks, and your information is used solely to process your payment.
Note: You may be charged a processing fee if you choose this mode of payment.
If you choose a payment method other than EFW, it is your responsibility to pay the balance due to the IRS after you e-file your Form 941 through ExpressEfile. To avoid IRS penalties, pay the tax due by the deadline.
