Make a Payment Online

Making tax payments simple.

We realize that tax administration can be difficult, so we strive to make paying your taxes as simple as possible. We have created a Tax Portal that allows for same-day and future payments for all taxes administered by the Division of Taxation.

We allow for estimated payments, extension payments, payments with a tax filing, license renewal payments, bill payments and payments for various fees.

If you need help getting started, feel free to call us at 401.574.8484 or email at If you are not ready to transition to the Tax Portal, we also support various legacy payment options, listed below.


Payment Options

Tax Portal

The Tax Portal can be used to quickly and easily pay your taxes using a checking or savings account. For more information, please see the Tax Portal webpage or go directly to the Tax Portal to make your payment.

MeF for Personal Income

You may elect to have your payment made based on your MeF 1040 or 1040NR filing via ACH Debit. For more information, please refer to the instructions provided by your Software Vendor used to file the IRS and RI 1040 or 1040NR returns. 

ACH Credit

We allow for ACH Credit (EFT) payment for Sales, Withholding, and a variety of other taxes electronically via the ACH network. For more information, please see the EFT webpage.

Credit Card

Even with the advancement of electronic filing and portal services, there are still many people that pay taxes using a personal or certified check.  Please refer to the form instructions for your tax returns to determine how to make a payment by check.
