A local newspaper in south-western Finland, Satakunnan kansa, published a short article about the US taxation. Our associate, Salla also explained the differences in living in a big city like New York versus a small town in Finland.
Remember that the deadline for the federal tax payment is April 18th, even if you’re subject to an extension for the tax return itself. There are several ways of paying the federal tax:
– Directly from your bank account: it’s free, safe and easy. This can even be done simultaneously when E-filing your tax return.
– By credit or debit card: Choose a payment processor to pay online, by phone or by mobile device. You’ll have to pay a processing fee that may be deductible from tax.
– By App: Download the official App, IRS2Go from e.g. App store and pay directly or by card.
The IRS also offers the possibility of paying by check, money order or via the electronic federal tax payment system. If you can’t pay, you may apply for online payment agreement, which let’s you pay over time, or, if you’re eligible, offer in compromise.
