Question about IRS payment

I had my taxes prepared about 3 weeks ago at HR Block. I chose to have what I owe taken directly out of my account. It still has not come out for state or federal taxes.

I called my preparer last week, and she said not to worry, since the IRS is behind.

Am I in trouble if it's not paid my the 15th this month?

Anyone have anything similar happening? I'm calling again tomorrow.

1. I'm not a pro @ taxes (at all,) but

old enough to say with some certainty that neither you nor anyone is 'n trouble if it's not paid m(b)y the 15th this month.'

3. Perhaps

This year the Due Date is actually Monday April 18.

I'm a CPA, and while I know for a fact the IRS is behind, it does seem unusual that if the Return was E-Filed, they would wait to take the Balance Due out. It is possible H&R Block set it up so that the payment would come out on the 4/18 due date.

If the payment is not made by 4/18, you would likely have some Penalties, which would be based on the amount owed. If in addition to the payment not being made, the Return is also not E-Filed, then the Penalties would be much more severe, as then both the payment and the Return would be late.

6. I had my tax preparer set the withdrawal date

to be on the due date for federal and state.

No reason to give them the money sooner.

7. Ask Block if your filing has been "accepted" by the IRS.

If so, no sweat.

8. My 2018 tax return took 2 years to process--

No real problem, just got stuck -- so I was told-- in a semi in a parking lot in Kansas City.

9. Hmmm. I should check. I paid using a credit card through the H&R Block program.

We e-filed in early March, and I really didn’t think about when the card would be charged; we didn’t owe much at all. I’ll have to check the AMEX bill.

We still haven’t gotten our refund from the state. For the last three days they have been “preparing to pay our refund.” How much “preparation” is necessary to make a direct deposit?

10. I wouldn't worry about it. You authorized the payment, if they don't take it, it is on them.

(assuming of course that Block processed it, and if they didn't, then they are responsible) Don't worry, if I am on your tax evasion jury, I will suggest that you get less than ten years at hard labor.

Our 2019 taxes, filed in '20 took the IRS about 10 months to process. We owed some piddling sum, but since they hadn't processed the return, It kept us from getting one of the Covid stimulus check on time, which we later got as a tax refund.

11. Thanks. I was heartbroken

I went out disabled in June, and owed over 1500 in taxes. I'm calling tomorrow again.

I just want the money removed so I can move on, plus not get in trouble

15. That deadline of the 15th is for filing, not for payment

If you've already filed, you're good.

Edited to add: You can pay later than the 15th, but they add penalty and interest $$.

16. April 18 is the due date for both the return and any payments this year, or later in some cases --

says Google

https://money.com/tax-deadlines-state-federal-extension/#:~:text=Taxpayers%20have%20a%20little%20extra,deadline%20is%20typically%20April%2015.
Taxpayers have a little extra time this year: The deadline to file your federal income tax return and make any payments owed is Monday, April 18, 2022.

The deadline is typically April 15. But that day lands on Emancipation Day this year, a holiday recognized by Washington D.C., so the tax filing deadline is pushed to the next business day. Residents of Maine or Massachusetts have until April 19 to file their returns due to the Patriots' Day holiday in those states.

he IRS is extending the federal tax return deadline to May 16 for people affected by tornadoes in Tennessee, Illinois and Kentucky; as well as for people affected by wildfires in Colorado. You can find a full list of affected counties and details about eligibility on the tax relief in disaster situations page of the IRS’s website.


I've also heard plenty of stories about how the IRS is very prompt in processing payments to them, while taking a long long time to process a return.
