Irs e file    You can e-file your Form 1040; certain business tax returns such as Forms 1120, 1120S, and 1065; certain employment tax returns such as Forms 940 and 941; certain excise tax returns such as Forms 720, 2290, and 8849; and Form 1099 and other information returns. Irs e file Visit www. Irs e file irs. Irs e file gov/efile for more information. Irs e file You can pay taxes online or by phone using the Electronic Federal Tax Payments System (EFTPS). Irs e file For detailed information about using this free service, see Electronic deposit requirement below. Irs e file   Use these electronic options to make filing and paying taxes easier. Irs e file For more information on electronic payments, visit the IRS website at www. Irs e file irs. Irs e file gov/e-pay. Irs e file Tax deposits. Irs e file   Some taxes can be paid with the return on which they are reported. Irs e file However, in many cases, you have to deposit the tax before the due date for filing the return. Irs e file Tax deposits are figured for periods of time that are shorter than the time period covered by the return. Irs e file See Publication 15 (Circular E) for the employment tax deposit rules. Irs e file For the excise tax deposit rules, see Publication 510 or the Instructions for Form 720. Irs e file    Electronic deposit requirement. Irs e file   You must use electronic funds transfer to make all federal tax deposits (such as deposits of employment tax, excise tax, and corporate income tax). Irs e file Generally, electronic fund transfers are made using the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS). Irs e file EFTPS is a free service provided by the Department of Treasury. Irs e file If you do not want to use EFTPS, you can arrange for your tax professional, financial institution, payroll service, or other trusted third party to make electronic deposits on your behalf. Irs e file   To get more information or to enroll in EFTPS, call 1-800-555-4477 (business), 1-800-316-6541 (individual), or 1-800-733-4829 (TDD/TTY). Irs e file You can also visit the EFTPS website at www. Irs e file eftps. Irs e file gov. Irs e file Additional information about EFTPS is also available in Publication 966, Electronic Federal Tax Payment System: A Guide to Getting Started.

Irs e file For an EFTPS deposit to be on time, you must initiate the deposit by 8 p. Irs e file m. Irs e file Eastern time the day before the date the deposit is due. Irs e file Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. Irs e file   Generally, if a due date for performing any act for tax purposes falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the act is considered to be performed timely if it is performed no later than the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday. Irs e file The term legal holiday means any legal holiday in the District of Columbia. Irs e file The calendars provided in this publication make the adjustment for Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays. Irs e file But you must make any adjustments for statewide legal holidays, as discussed next. Irs e file An exception to this rule for certain excise taxes is noted later under the Excise Tax Calendar. Irs e file Legal holidays. Irs e file   Legal holidays for 2014 are listed below.

Irs e file   A statewide legal holiday delays a due date for filing a return only if the IRS office where you are required to file is located in that state. Irs e file A statewide legal holiday does not delay a due date for making a federal tax deposit. Irs e file Extended due date for Forms 1098, 1099, and W-2 if filed electronically. Irs e file   If you file Forms 1098, 1099, or W-2 electronically, your due date for filing them with the IRS or the Social Security Administration (SSA) will be extended to March 31.

Irs e file For information about filing Form W-2 electronically with the SSA, visit www. Irs e file ssa. Irs e file gov/employer or call 1-800-772-6270. Irs e file Penalties. Irs e file   Whenever possible, you should take action before the listed due date. Irs e file If you are late, you may have to pay a penalty as well as interest on any overdue taxes. Irs e file   Be sure to follow all the tax laws that apply to you. Irs e file In addition to civil penalties, criminal penalties may be imposed for intentionally not paying taxes, for intentionally filing a false return, or for not filing a required return.
