Pay the IRS in Cash at a 7-Eleven Store through PayNearMe!

For one reason or another, some people can only pay bills by making cash payments. Until now, taxpayers wanting to pay the IRS in cash had to travel to the IRS Taxpayer Assistance Center nearest them, but no more. Now, through the IRS' new program, a taxpayer can make tax payments of up to $1,000 per day at more than 7,000 7-Eleven stores nationwide. Taxpayers can still pay online by credit or debit card, or mail in tax payments by check.

According to an IRS press release:

"Individuals wishing to take advantage of this payment option should visit the IRS.gov payments page, select the cash option in the other ways you can pay section and follow the instructions:

  • Taxpayers will receive an email from OfficialPayments.com confirming their information.
  • Once the IRS has verified the information, PayNearMe sends the taxpayer an email with a link to the payment code and instructions.
  • Individuals may print the payment code provided or send it to their smart phone, along with a list of the closest 7-Eleven stores.
  • The retail store provides a receipt after accepting the cash and the payment usually posts to the taxpayer's account within two business days.
  • There is a $1,000 payment limit per day and a $3.99 fee per payment.

Because PayNearMe involves a three-step process, the IRS urges taxpayers choosing this option to start the process well ahead of the tax deadline to avoid interest and penalty charges."
