FINALLY A Way To Earn 3% CASH REWARD On Your Federal & State Income Tax Payments

Friday, August 20, 2010 - 9:44 AMPerkStreet Financial - Details
You can pay your federal and state income taxes (& make your quarterly estimated payments) with only a $3.89 per transaction fee, instead of the roughly 2% credit card transaction fee that makes it impractical to use your cash back credit card!  I've earned hundred of dollars back this year on my federal & NYS estimated tax payments.  Even if you always prefer credit cards to debit cards, this is hard to resist!

  To get 3% cash back on your next tax payments AND ALL OTHER non-pin purchases and 2% back thereafter see the posting at

only charges a flat $3.89 on federal debit card tax payments & $3.95 for state debit card tax payments.

Awesome suggestion, assuming that the flat $3.89 is charged on debit card purchase without PIN.

Here's the IRS website with official e-pay providers:,,id=101316,00.html

Here are two additional e-pay websites: ($3.89) and ($3.95)

Thanks for posting!

I have done it multiple times this year.  The $3.89 falt fee is all that is charged.  You can see it before you process payment.
