Can I file my return now and return at a later time to select a payment option?

Yes. However, you are given the option to file now and post-date your payment anytime through April 17 (for tax year 2017) using an electronic check. You cannot post-date a credit card payment.

If you do decide to file now and return at a later time to pay, please return to our website, login to Income Tax Online Services secure portal and select "Pay" under the "Actions" column of the Outstanding Balance section on the Dashboard.
