Has Anyone Paid 1041-ES Using A Credit Card?

Post by 808 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 12:39 am

The 1041-ES (not 1040-ES) can be paid via ACH pull directly via EFTPS. However, I can make a little profit if I pay with a credit card even after the payment processor fees. But, none of the 3 IRS approved payment processors seem to support the 1041-ES. They all support the 1040-ES for 2018. However, the only 1041 series selection is the 1041 itself, for the current year, which is listed as 2017 (so I guess late filers or those still with a balance due) or previous years (2016 and earlier).

Has anyone used the "current year" 1041 option to pay their quarterly estimated tax and did it get reflected properly in EFTPS?

No, but a wonderful idea! We have been paying this ES fee via our Credit Unions automatic billpayer Service every quarter, but the billpayer checks only allow 20 characters and a clerk warned us that that could be a problem, says to use snail mail with the ES stubs which I find to be tedious and I forget to do sometimes. Will look into the credit card for paying the quarterly ES fees.

WHOOPS! Just re read your post and you are referring to the “1041” ES, not the 1040 ES...Darn! Sorry.
