When must I make a payment for it to be timely? Is there a grace period?

Payments are due by midnight on the filing period due date to avoid penalties and interest. There is no grace period.

I owe taxes but can not pay in full by the due date. Can I make a payment arrangement through TAP?

Yes, you can request a payment arrangement through your TAP account. Go to the Apply Online box and click Apply for a waiver or a pay plan link.

What information will my bank need to process debit payment requests?

You may need to give your bank the company identification or debit blocker number (9588805001) and our bank name (J.P. Morgan Chase). Contact your bank for help.

How long will it take for my payments to process in Tap?

Payments post within 3 business days. However, your payment effective date will be the day you submit your payment regardless of how long the payment takes to process.
