Flash - Credit Card Payment Option for Business

April 28, 2014

A credit card payment option for businesses is here! Corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies (LLC) now have the option to pay by credit card. Discover, MasterCard, Visa, or American Express Card can be used.

Our third–party credit card processor, Official Payments Corporation, charges a convenience fee for this service. The fee is based on the amount of your tax payment.

We now offer businesses three options to pay their estimated tax payments, extension payments, or the amount due on their current year or prior year tax returns.

Businesses subject to the mandatory electronic funds transfer (EFT) requirement can use credit card payments to meet this EFT requirement.

More information, go to and search for credit card.
