To save interest and penalties, pay your taxes in full by April 15, 2010. You do not have to pay if line 13 is under $1.
If you are not using EFW or EFTPS, you have four other ways to pay.

Enclose in the envelope with your return a check or money order payable to the United States Treasury for the full amount when you file. Do not attach the payment to your return. Do not send cash. Write 2009 Form 1040EZ and your name, address, daytime phone number, and social security number (SSN) on your payment. If you are filing a joint return, enter the SSN shown first on your return.
To help process your payment, enter the amount on the right side of the check like this: $ XXX.XX. Do not use dashes or lines (for example, do not enter XXX– or XXX ).
Then, complete Form 1040-V following the instructions on that form and enclose it in the envelope with your tax return and payment. Although you do not have to use Form 1040-V, doing so allows us to process your payment more accurately and efficiently.

To pay by credit or debit card, call toll-free or visit the website of one of the service providers listed below and follow the instructions. A convenience fee will be charged by the service provider based on the amount you are paying. You may be able to deduct the fee on your 2010 tax return, but you will have to file Form 1040 and itemize your deductions on Schedule A (Form 1040). See the instructions for Form 1040, Schedule A. Fees may vary between the providers. You will be told what the fee is during the transaction and you will have the option to either continue or cancel the transaction. You also can find out what the fee will be by calling the provider's toll-free automated customer service number or visiting the provider's website shown below.
