How to Cancel an IRS Income Tax Payment Previously Scheduled to Be Paid by April 15, 2020:
- If you have already scheduled an electronic income tax payment to the IRS and would like to take advantage of the new payment due date, you can cancel the original payment by contacting the IRS E-File Payment Services (24/7) at: 1-888-353-4537
- Note - you must call and request a cancellation no later than 11:59PM two business days prior to the scheduled payment date or the funds will be pulled without question as originally planned.
- Once cancelled, you must ensure the payment is submitted by the new July 15, 2020 deadline by either mailing a check or submitting the payment via an online IRS account.
From what we have heard from clients, once on the phone with an agent, the process only takes a few minutes.
