Laurie’s Blog – Paying Taxes Online

The IRS makes it easier to pay your tax bill with IRS Direct Pay, a free online tool.  Individuals can pay regular federal income tax or quarterly estimated income tax payments and schedule them up to 30 days in advance.  The payments come out of your checking or savings account and you receive automatic confirmation.  The service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Visit irs.gov for more information.

 

Laurie’s Blog – Savings Bonds

Lest you forget you have them, many US Savings Bonds tucked away in drawers, cupboards and safe deposit boxes may have matured without your realizing or remembering.  Let this be a little reminder to check if there may be bonds lurking out there.  If they haven’t matured, they may still be earning a great rate of interest but the interest can adjust as well.  What you may have been receiving initially may have dropped.  You can create an inventory of your bonds on the Treasury website.  The report will give you the current value, interest earned, interest rate, next payment and maturity date of your bonds.  You can store the inventory and update it periodically without having to enter all the information again. You can find more information about US Savings Bonds at treasurydirect.gov.
