Pay your taxes through your bank or credit union

Paying your taxes through your bank’s online services is the fastest way to pay and get an instant confirmation receipt.

Know your bank’s transaction cut-off time for online and in-person payments. Transactions made after the cut-off  time are posted the next business day. Your bank’s posting date is the payment date, which may be later than the date indicated on your bank statement and may result in a penalty.

You can also pay your taxes at the bank in person or by phone.

Banks may require you to register before accepting tax payment

 Your bank may require you to register a payee before they will accept your payment in-branch, at an ATM, by phone, or online. Registration can usually be done online or by visiting your branch.
