Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
I am a little confused. It appears you had a tax liability and owe the IRS. Usually, you can electronically file and then mail a check with the remittance stub. How did you pay the IRS?
You can also do what is called Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW); it is an integrated e-file/e-pay option offered only when filing your federal taxes using tax preparation software or through a tax professional. Using this payment option, you may submit one or more payment requests for direct debit from your designated bank account. You must have made this election when you filed your return.
