The IRS offers individuals a variety of ways to pay their Federal Taxes electronically. Individuals can pay the taxes they owe on their 2005 tax returns by electronic funds withdrawal from a bank account or using a credit card. The IRS doesn't charge a fee for payments by credit card, but the third-party companies that process the payments often do. Individuals who need to pay income, employment, estimated, or excise taxes can also enroll in the IRS' Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). EFTPS offers the ability to pay taxes online or by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
