You won't be able to split the payment between two credit cards using the TurboTax system during e-file.  But, you can when you pay directly to the IRS.  Select "Pay by check" when e-filing and a voucher for the full amount will be produced, which you can then ignore.  After you e-file, you can use the website below to make two separate payments with a credit card directly to the IRS.

What if I want to pay with multiple credit cards but still have a balance left over - can I send in the balance using a check ? Do I need to use the turbo tax printed voucher to do that ?

Yes.  You don't need a Turbo Tax pre-Printed voucher.  Just fill out a blank one for the check

Thanks for your quick reply/. However, doesn't this go against the max of 2 payments allowed per year by the IRs. 

 

For instance, if I have a balance of 10,000 owed in taxes - and I put $4000 on 2 credit cards - am I still allowed to send in a check for the remaining $2000 ?

You can only make two payments to the IRS on their direct pay site per day, not per year.  Making two payments using credit cards and then mailing a check for the remaining taxes is not a problem at all.
