Paying Taxes by Credit or Debit Card

Drake Software has partnered with Value Payment Systems (VPS) to offer electronic tax payment solutions for your customers.

Integrated File and Pay (IFP) is a fast and secure way for your customer to pay a tax due amount by credit or debit card when their return is e-filed. The payment is authorized before the return is e-filed and is processed after the return is accepted. The payment process is initiated on the IFP screen in the customer’s return.

Payments can be made with an e-filed Form 1040 or Form 4868.

Drake E-Payment Center

The Drake E-Payment Center website (www.1040paytax.com) is a convenient option for taxpayers who want to pay their tax bill at their convenience after their return is filed. Unlike IFP, this option is not integrated with the e-file process; instead, taxpayers can simply go to the E-Payment Center site at any time to make their payment. In addition to Form 1040 and 4868 payments, many other payment options are available, including quarterly estimated tax payments.
