cancelling an electronic payment

jeff4
Level 1

I scheduled an electronic payment of 2019 federal tax due, to be paid on April 15, 2020 (before corona).

I am being told I need to cancel that payment and re-schedule for July 15, 2020.

How do I cancel the 4/15/20 payment which has already been e-filed?

Thank you.

Stay safe.

If you google   IRS EFW    you'll find the site with the number to call to cancel the Electronic Funds Withdrawal

This is why I use payment vouchers 😁

Why do you "need to cancel?" We've always had the ability to pay at any time, just not after April 15.

IS IT REQUIRED TO PAY JULY 15, or just allowed?

FYI, I am telling my clients this:

AT THIS TIME, I can e-file today, but I can only debit on April 15, not yet July 15. We have only three options to debit: 1) E-file now and debit April 15; 2) Delay e-filing until after April 15, when the software should be changed by then; or 3) Extend the returns so I can debit on July 15.

Do you have a choice?

4)  You file the return now and the clients can put on their big boy/girl panties and initiate their own electronic debit on the IRS DirectPay website closer to July.

All returns are automatically extended until July 15. I would like to know if the program will be updated to allow a payment date of July 15 without calculating a penalty, if we want to go ahead and file the returns now.

Thank you AM.  That is what is driving me crazy with these posts.  You know pretty much everyone that is asking for the new date has the cash, they just want to play the game.

This only addresses Federal tax payments. How about State tax payments? How do we cancel those?

I suggest you call the State in question, OR check that state's website.

The software doesn't have & won't have the ability to do it for you or your client.

I know CA has a number you can call...I would guess other states have something similar.

Maine has no way to change it. They tell us "whoever" set up the payment on the internet has to log in and change the dates of payment. Good luck getting Lacerte to do that for us!!! Supposedly a sign in name and password is used but that would have been done behind the scenes electronically by Lacerte, not by me or the client. It's a catch-22 -- we can't get in because we aren't the ones who put it in there to begin with, Lacerte did (the Maine EZPay web site).
