Tax season can be a stressful time for most people.  Check out CardHub and WalletHub annual Tips for Taxpayers Who Can’t Pay as well as a breakdown of the Pros & Cons of Paying Your Taxes with a Credit Card.  These tips from CardHub and WalletHub can to help you avoid unnecessary penalties, interest and other headaches.  Below are some highlights from these reports:

What to Do If You Can’t Pay
  • File a Return No Matter What: The IRS levies separate penalty fees for failing to pay taxes and failing to file a tax return. At a minimum, you want to eliminate the latter since it is entirely within your control.
  • If You Need Up to 30 Days: Just wait for a bill.
  • 31 – 120 Days: Apply for an extension.
  • 120+ Days: Consider an installment agreement, offer in compromise or a credit card.
Pros & Cons of Paying by Credit Card
  • Pros: Move tax obligation to unsecured debt; 0% intro terms; rewards earning potential.
  • Cons: Processing fees around 2%; high regular interest rates; potential for credit score damage due to missed payments.
