Direct Pay allows you to pay from your bank account for free. There’s no need to register ahead of time, payments are made online in five easy steps.
EFTPS allows individual and businesses to pay federal taxes electronically online or by phone using the EFTPS Voice Response System. You must be enrolled to use EFTPS. You’ll receive your personal identification number (PIN) via U.S. mail in five to seven business days.
