Get your taxes done using TurboTax

If you don't remember if you requested that the federal payment be deducted from your bank account, you should keep checking your bank account and the IRS website.  

 

If you selected payment option Withdraw the money from my bank account when asked how you want to pay your federal taxes then the money will be withdrawn by the IRS from your bank account on the date you specify (if filing on or before the deadline) or when your return is accepted (if filing after the deadline). 

 

In TurboTax, you can pay your IRS taxes directly from your checking or savings account with direct debit.

Here are a few things you should know about direct debit:

  • Direct debit is not the same thing as direct deposit.
  • You must e-file your return; direct debit in TurboTax isn't available for paper-filers (although we do offer a simple workaround).
  • There is no charge for this service.
  • The money is withdrawn from your bank account on the date you specify (if filing by the deadline) or when your return is accepted (if filing after the deadline).
  • The IRS will withdraw the entire owed amount from your bank account. Direct debit for partial payments isn't available.

In TurboTax, you'll see the payment option Withdraw the money from my bank account when we ask how you want to pay your federal taxes. This is the direct debit option.

We'll also offer the direct debit option for your state return if your state supports it (not all states do).

Did you know? If you already filed your federal return in TurboTax, you can pay the IRS with direct debit through their secure Direct Pay site free of charge.
