What payment options does the District of Columbia offer?

Q

If you owe DC tax, it must be paid by the original due date to avoid penalties and interest. You can include your extension payment with Form FR-128, or you can pay electronically via the “eTaxpayer Service Center” (eTSC). An extension of time to file is not an extension of time to pay.

If your liability exceeds $10,000 in any month, you must file and pay electronically. For electronic filers, in order to comply with new banking rules, you will be asked the question "Will the funds for this payment come from an account outside of the United States".

If the answer is yes, you will be required to pay by check or credit card. Please notify this agency if your response changes in the future. If your payment is rejected, you may be subject to the District's dishonored check fee and additional penalties and interest.
