Hello, I filed my 2019 federal income taxes, via paper form, in February of this year. I have gone on the IRS website and it says that my return has not been processed. I owe approximately $2400 on July 15. What is my next step if it isn’t processed by then. Thank you

Did you send the payment with the mailed in return?

I did not

Then mail your payment on or before 7/15/20 by certified mail so you have proof of mailing.

Ok, even though the IRS website says that my return isn’t processed?

Yes. You don't want a late payment penalty.

Make sure you include your SSN, tax year, and tax form (1040) on the check.
