Taxpayers Receive Two-Day Extension For First-Quarter Federal Estimated Payments

Stocks in this article: OPAY

NORCROSS, Ga., April 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Official Payments, a leading provider of electronic payment solutions, reminds those who pay federal estimated quarterly taxes that the first-quarter federal estimated payment for tax year 2012 is due Tuesday, April 17, 2012. Typically, the first-quarter payment is due on April 15, which this year falls on a Sunday. Monday, April 16, coincides with Emancipation Day, a legal holiday in Washington, D.C., so taxpayers get two extra days to file their annual federal returns, which are due on April 17 this year.

"This extension is great news for all the people who wait until the last minute to pay taxes," said Alex P. Hart, President and CEO of Official Payments. "Now they have two extra days to make their estimated payments. All they need to do is go to www.OfficialPayments.com/fed and use a debit or credit card to pay online. And since we process payments the same day, taxpayers can rest assured knowing their estimated taxes are officially paid."

Official Payments accepts a variety of payment types, including Visa, American Express, Discover and MasterCard debit and credit cards, electronic checks, and Bill Me Later. In fact, Official Payments offers more payment options than any other electronic payment provider.

To find out if you are subject to federal estimated tax payments or to learn more about making federal estimated tax payments, please contact the Internal Revenue Service at 1-800-829-1040 or visit the IRS website at www.irs.gov.
