Re: US Tax payment from Switzerland?

View Post
Hi all,

Does anyone have a recommendation for how best to pay/transfer tax payment from my Swiss bank (Postfinance) directly to the US IRS? I've looked at enrolling at, but they only seem to accept US financial institutions as the source. There is also, but we do not want to use a credit card, prefer to transfer direct bank to bank. Having our bank cut a money order would take quite some time (a week at least), and we want to make payment before the 17th to avoid another late penalty.

thanks in advance,
The alternative that works for us is to have a checking account in the US and feed it from here. You can usually set up a SWIFT transaction. I don't believe the IRS will accept SWIFT but perhaps they have had to since they are going after expats in a big way.
