New York State Tax Department’s Quick Pay Application Gaining Popularity

Simple application has handled more than $46.6 million in payments so far in 2018

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance today announced more than 62,000 payments worth more than $46.6 million have been made through its convenient Quick Pay application since the beginning of 2018. This free service provides individuals a way to promptly pay a tax bill or debt owed from an audit or collection case, or as part of an installment payment agreement.

The Quick Pay application, launched in March of 2017, provides individuals the option to pay directly from their bank account.

“This simple and convenient payment option has been a huge success,” said Acting Commissioner Nonie Manion. “Taxpayers can access the online application on their schedule 24/7 and not spend time arranging the transaction over the phone or through the mail.”

Those who use the Quick Pay application need the number associated with the tax bill, audit or collection case, installment payment agreement, or income execution, along with:

  • first and last name;
  • taxpayer Social Security or ID number (and spouse’s number, if applicable);
  • filing status;
  • mailing ZIP code; and
  • bank routing and account numbers.

Taxpayers can access the new application anytime at the NYS Tax Department’s Pay a bill or notice webpage.

On the same page, they’ll also have the option to:

  • create an Online Services account, which offers a wider menu of free services, such as the ability to receive email alerts and respond to department notices; or
  • access a link to request an Installment Payment Agreement if they can’t pay a bill in full.
