Are you accustomed to receiving a tax refund. i.e. having more withheld from your earnings than you owe? Have you always paid the taxes you have owed in the past with another refund or by check, but would like to pay by credit card now? Are you finally in the black with your self-employment earnings, home based business or other income that forces you to pay taxes?
If you’re a new business owner, earning a profit or self-employment income for the first time, are just under-withheld on your taxes for the year, or if you have paid taxes in the past by check but find this inconvenient or undesirable now, it’s easy to pay your taxes with a credit card. The IRS permits credit card payments and makes it easy to accomplish through a number of service providers. There
is a service fee for filing by credit card, usually 2.49%, depending upon which site or processor you use.
