1040- Filing with full payment including interest

Highlighted
Level 1

I am having difficulty deciphering how to input an 1040 return whom had an amount due but paid nothing in with their extension and now wants to pay the full balance due including interest when we efile. I can only show the amount due on 7/15 and a 1040 V being sent in for the remaining interest. Any idea to have that full balance paid? Thank you.

Several people have mentioned this in the past few weeks, so it must be an issue.   

I guess you could make an electronic payment on IRS DirectPay, it will let you pay any amount youd like.

Oh wow, very unfortunate to hear that and they were not able to make a update to fix that especially since others have had same issue. Thanks for the response.

Personally, I tell clients to just wait until the IRS sends them a bill for the interest.  That way you don't need to calculate interest (which is compounded Daily, so it depends on the exact date that the money is received by the IRS).

Me too, honestly I thought thats what most preparers do, but Ive seen multiple complaints like this one recently...I guess it was able to be done in prior years.

Just feels inadequate is all, to tell a client to pay this electronically then sit and wait for a bill to be MAILED for the interest. It is 2020 , I mean what is the problem, seems like a easy fix to me to allow clients to remit full amount due. What a letdown.

2020 has been a mess, just make the payment on IRS DirectPay, easy peasy.

Go to the 1040 final line where tax due is shown. Click the button to the penalties and interest worksheet.  Complete it.
