Creating an Online Account with the IRS

It is now possible to contact the IRS using an online account (instead of having to contact them by phone) to find out the status of a payment or to request tax transcripts.

Creating an online account with the IRS is beneficial as it enables taxpayers to:

  • View current balance and details (this information is updated daily)
  • View payment history for the past 18 months
  • Obtain tax records online via “Get Transcript” tool
  • View information from your current tax return as originally filed
  • Pay taxes owed by bank account or credit card
  • Establish an online payment agreement
