A better way to pay your small business taxes

The easy way to stay on top of taxes

For most business owners, time is the most valued asset. And one way to make better use of your time is to pay business taxes with your MasterCard. Most IRS federal and state* business tax payments can be made with a credit card or a debit card, whether they are one-time or recurring.

When you pay taxes with a MasterCard, you can:

  • Earn rewards when you pay your business taxes**

  • Eliminate check-writing, printing and mailing hassles

  • Keep track of small business taxes and due dates to avoid missing deadlines

  • Make last-minute payments

  • Receive payment confirmation as soon as payment is made

  • For business tax types, the fee is a deductible business expense

How to pay

MasterCard cardholders have the option to make tax payments with a credit or debit card by phone or online with a participating service provider. There is a convenience fee charged by service providers. Fees are based on the type of card used and the amount of the payment. Fees vary by service provider. Taxpayers should contact the service provider to receive up-to-date information and convenience fees.
