When Do I Mail in My Tax Payment?

E-filing your return? While completing your return means the paperwork is done, you’re not quite ready to check taxes off your to-do list. If you owe taxes to the IRS or state tax authority, you’ll still need to mail in your payment on time. If you’ve e-filed on or near the tax deadline, go ahead and mail your tax payment– don’t wait for confirmation your return was accepted.

When Should My Payment Be Postmarked?

You should mail your tax payment by midnight on April 15 to avoid a penalty. It’s a good idea to check your local post office’s hours so you can be sure to have the payment postmarked before they close.
