How do I file taxes with Turbo tax if we owe money?

You can file as you normally do. You have several payment options. You can mail a check, pay by credit card or use IRS direct pay.

You won't see a credit/debit card payment option in TurboTax if you owe IRS taxes and are paper-filing, but you can easily work around this by following the instructions below.

  1. In TurboTax, select the option I will mail a check when asked how you want to pay your owed taxes.
  2. Follow the on-screen instructions to print a filing copy of your return.
  • Throw out (or better yet, recycle) the 1040-V voucher that prints out. You won't need it.
  1. Then, go to the IRS webpage Pay Your Taxes by Debit or Credit Card, choose a payment processor, and pay your tax bill at their secure website.

Note: There is a convenience fee (charged by a third-party payment processor) for paying your taxes with plastic. If you plan to pay your taxes with your debit card, consider IRS Direct Pay, which is free.

@jagulliver TurboTax does not print anything for you or mail anything for you.  If you cannot e-file for some reason and need to print, then you have to problem solve your way though that.  You can access your online account from any computer that has internet access, so you may be able to use a computer and printer belonging to a relative or friend; or yes, you could save it to a flash drive and print at Staples, a UPS place, etc.
