--Credit or Debit Card
You may use your Discover, VISA, MasterCard or American Express card to pay your income taxes. You may make the credit or debit card payments by either visiting tax.ohio.gov or calling 1-800-2PAY-TAX (1-800-272-9829). The Ohio jurisdiction code is 6446. Whether you visit our website or pay by telephone, Official Payments will provide the payment services. Official Payments will bill your account a convenience fee equal to 2.5% (or $1, whichever is greater) of the tax payment. Neither the state of Ohio or your school district receive any portion of this fee.
When will my payment be posted? Your payment will be effective the date you charge it.
What happens if I change my mind? If you pay your tax liability by credit or debit card and you subsequently reverse the transaction, you may be subject to penalties, interest and other fees imposed for nonpayment or late payment of your tax liability.
Whom should I call if I have a problem with my credit or debit card payment? Call Official Payments toll-free at 1-866-621-4109.

You may also file and pay your quarterly 2020 Ohio individual and/or school district estimated income tax with the electronic check method. Go to tax.ohio.gov.
--Paper Check or Money Order You may pay your Ohio individual income and/or school district income tax by personal check or money order. Make individual income tax payments payable to "Ohio Treasurer of State" and school district income tax payments payable to "School District Income Tax."
