Monitor your IRS information online
You can access your federal tax information through a secure login at IRS.gov/account. After you log in, you can view the amount you owe, your payment history, tax records and key information from your most recent tax return as originally filed. You can monitor your account by keeping track of your balance and any updates to your personal tax information. This online information is the same as what’s provided by IRS representatives.
If you owe, you can pay from your bank account, with a debit or credit card, or you can apply for a payment plan if you need more time to pay. Other payment options are available at IRS.gov/payments.
First-time users must authenticate their identity through the Secure Access process. Additional information about secure access can be found at IRS.gov/secureaccess. Returning users can log in with their user name and password.
The account balance will update no more than once every 24 hours, usually overnight. After making a payment, allow up to three weeks for it to appear in the payment history.
The IRS continues to add features to help individual taxpayers conveniently monitor their account information online.
