If you would like to make an income tax return payment, you can make your payment directly on our website. 

How to pay electronically through our website (individuals only)

You can pay directly from your bank account or by credit card through your Individual Online Services account.

Pay from bank account (free)
Authorize a direct debit from a checking or savings account and:

  • schedule payments in advance,

  • receive instant confirmation from the New York State Tax Department.

Your bank statement will indicate our receipt of your payment with a NYS Tax Payment line item for the authorized amount.

Pay by credit card (2.25% convenience fee)

We have updated our credit card feature to:

  • provide easy-to-use payment screens,
  • quicken the process, and
  • simplify your payment experience.

Simply log in to your Individual Online Services account, select Payments, bills and notices from the left-hand menu, and then select Make a Payment from the drop-down. (You'll need to create an account if you don't already have one.) We have made arrangements with Wells Fargo to provide card services.
