Payments by Electronic Check or Credit/Debit Card
Whether you file your returns electronically or by paper, you can pay by electronic check via the Department's Online Services (registration is required) or by using the Department’s NEW! Guest Payment Service (no registration is required). These payment methods withdraw funds directly from your checking or savings account. There is no fee for using this payment method. Generally, your payment will be withdrawn within 24 hours of the date you choose for payment. You must ensure that the funds are in your account and available on the date you choose for payment. The payment will show on your bank statement as "STATE OF OHIO". You can delay payment until the date the liability is due.
See the FAQs under the "Income - Online Services (I-File/ePayment/eStatement)" for more information on using Online Services.
