Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal(EFW) Payment Options

You can pay your balance due to the IRS via Direct Debit or Electronic Funds Withdrawal by authorizing the IRS to debit the amount you owe from your bank account. To allow the IRS to debit your account, you will need to provide your bank account number and routing number. This information can be found on one of your checks.

Carefully enter your account information. If your information is entered incorrectly, the IRS will not be able to debit your account. Also, the IRS typically debits the account within 24-48 business hours and only tries once to debit the account so make sure you have enough funds in your account to cover the payment.

To cancel a payment contact, IRS E-File Payment Services at 1-888-353-4537 at least two business days before the payment date. This option is only available if you e-file Form 2290

EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System) Payment

The IRS accepts Form 2290 tax payments via EFTPS. To complete your payment using this method you will be directed to http://www.eftps.gov, or you can call 1-800-555-4477 to create a free account. It may take up to 10 business days to create the account. You will be responsible for scheduling your EFTPS payment.

Schedule your payment at least by 8 PM the day before the deadline to give the IRS enough time to collect the funds by the deadline. The IRS will debit the funds from the bank account information that you provide.

Pay Form 2290 Taxes Using Check or Money Order

You can also pay the amount of HVUT you owe with a Check or Money Order. If you choose this option, you will need to print your completed payment voucher, 2290-V, from page 11 of your completed 2290 Form and mail it to the IRS with your payment.

  • Make your check or money order payable to the United States Treasury. Write your name, address, EIN, 'IRS Form 2290', and date (as entered in box 3) on your payment.
  • Detach your 2290-V and send it with your payment. If you filed electronically, do not submit your Form 2290 or stamped Schedule 1 with your payment voucher.
  • Also, do not staple your payment voucher, payment, or Form 2290 together.
  • Send your payment and the 2290-V voucher to:
    Internal Revenue Service,
