You will be informed of the amount of the fee and you may elect to cancel the transaction. At the end of the transaction, you will be given a confirmation number for your records.

To Pay by Mail: Make your check or money order payable to the "Commissioner of Revenue Services."

Be sure to sign your check and paper clip it to the front of your return. Do not send cash.
