Do you refer to direct debit payments to the IRS? The IRS does not issue receipts.
You may wish to print out and save your bank statement showing that the payment cleared your bank account. Retain this for your records, and save it with your tax return.

The IRS cannot find a record of my credit card payment of my taxes owed (paid via credit card at time of filing -online-). My credit card statement shows the payment but the reference number listed thereby is not what the IRS needs to trade that payment. My CC company has no further confirmation/transaction numbers to give me. The IRS is demanding a confirmation number otherwise known as an EFT# to trace said payment. They told me that since I sent the cc payment through TurboTax, that you will have a confirmation number (or EFT#). How do I get that number? Thanks.
You might want to check your bank/CC statement to see if the amount paid to the IRS agrees with the amount on line 37 of your 2022 form 1040.
Understand that when you owe tax to any taxing authority (including the IRS), Turbotax does not, can not, and will not act as a middleman in that transaction. If you paid your taxes via bank debit, then you entered that account information on your 1040 on line 34a thru d. That 1040 would have then been transmitted to the IRS by you if you filed electronically, or in paper form if you elected to print, sign and mail your return to the IRS.
It is not possible to pay your taxes due using a credit card on the 1040. Line 36a thru d allows for a bank account draft only, from a savings account or a checking account.
However, it is possible to pay any taxes due online yourself, at www.irs.gov/payments. If/when you do/did that, a transaction receipt is displayed on your screen and you should have printed that for your records and filed it with the hard copy printout of your filed tax return.
Now I know the line item on my checking account statement I paid my taxes from shows as "USA IRS TAX PMNT". I would expect something similar on a CC statement.
There are three (3) separate charges listed on my cc statement 1) the TT fee 2) the actual tax amount owed/paid) & 3) the TT fee for using the card to pay my taxes .
Then send them a copy of your credit card statement showing the payment. Highlight it. The IRS has been sending out letters about payments when the person has already paid. It's been a problem this year.
What are you talking about??? At the time of filing, TurboTax asks how I want to pay the IRS the amount calculated & owed. Then TurboTax asks me if I want to use a credit card to pay the taxes owed… I did that (thru TurboTax online) and can see their fee in my cc statement (in addition to the actual tax payment) for having used my cc to pay the tax!
I’ve spent hours on this already m. Video call with IRS. They will not accept the copy of the cc statement as proof! They say they need a certain confirmation number which the cc company says they don’t have and so far TurboTax states they don’t have a confirmation number either!
TT never handles any tax payments to any taxing authority so when you set up the payment to happen via CC when you filed then that payment is made using a third party service which charges a fee that you should also see on the CC statement. Save a PDF of the return WITH all the worksheets to see the CC payment request and contact the CC service for the confirmation you seem to need.
