Online Tax Payment

IRS Pay tax bills or make estimated tax payments directly from bank accounts without fees or pre-registration; uses Third-Party authentication from your personal history – questions only you should be able to answer.

Ohio Income* Taxes Online requires simple pre-registration.

Kentucky Income Taxes Online requires pre-registration, credit card or e-check permitted.

Indiana Income Taxes Online no pre-registration, credit card or e-check permitted – with fees.

City of Cincinnati Online Payments requires City account number & pre-registration, but very simple to use once set up.

A few other cities (plus RITA and CCA) have online options available; check the websites. Note that payment by credit card will trigger fees, and will probably be treated as a cash advance by your credit card issuer, with an advance fee and interest from date of advance. E-check and debit card transactions may include nominal fees of $1-4.

*Many other Ohio taxes can or must be paid through the Ohio Business Gateway; other states have similar requirements.
