Make a late federal tax payment

You have several options for making a late federal tax payment. The following links help guide you.

Pay a penalty for delinquent taxes

If you pay a tax after the due date (sometimes called the delinquent date or cutoff date), you may owe a penalty and interest. You should:

  1. Pay the basic tax liability reported to you.
  2. Contact the IRS for assistance in calculating the penalty and interest. (Alternatively, you can wait to receive a written IRS penalty notice in the mail.)
  3. Intuit Online Payroll does not calculate or track penalties and interest.

Things to know

  • Do not include penalties and interest when recording the payment in Intuit Online Payroll.
  • Pay the penalty and interest.
