Make a personal income tax return payment online

Did you receive a bill for the tax due on your income tax return? See Pay a bill or notice.

If you haven't received a bill, pay the tax due on your return through an Individual Online Services account, either directly from your bank account or by credit card.

Pay from bank account (free)

Authorize a direct debit from a checking or savings account and:

  • schedule payments in advance,
  • save your bank account information, and
  • 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.

We have arrangements with Wells Fargo to provide card services. Wells Fargo accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
