Visit the TSC at www.ct.gov/TSC and follow the prompts to make a direct payment or visit https://drsindtax.ct.gov to make a direct payment if you do not want to login to the TSC. You can authorize DRS to transfer funds from your bank account (checking or savings) to a DRS account by entering your bank account number and your bank routing transit number. You can file your return any time before the due date and designate the amount of payment and date of transfer. Your bank account will be debited on the date you indicate. You must pay the balance due on or before the due date (April 15, 2015) to avoid penalty and interest.
To Pay by Credit Card:

A convenience fee will be charged by the service provider. You will be informed of the amount of the fee and you may elect to cancel the transaction.

To Pay by Mail:
