An IRS online account makes it easy for people to quickly get the tax planning information they need. With the same ease that taxpayers have when banking online or placing an online shopping order, they can log in and get the latest on their payment history, balance, and more. An IRS online account is a safe and easy way for individual taxpayers to view specific details about their federal tax account.
Taxpayers can view information about their account including:
Their payoff amount, which is updated for the current day
The balance for each tax year for which they owe taxes
Their payment history
Key information from their most current tax return as originally filed
Payment plan details if they have one
Digital copies of select IRS notices
Their address on file
With an online account, taxpayers can also:
Make a same day payment and estimated payments
Set up an online payment plan
Access tax records and transcripts
Authorize another person to represent them before the IRS or view their tax records
Approve and electronically sign Power of Attorney and Tax Information Authorization requests from their tax professional.
