Credit Card Payment
NOTE: A convenience fee will be charged by Official Payments. Effective June 1, 2016, this convenience fee is 2.35% of the payment.
Tax Payment by Credit Card
If you have a tax liability to pay, you have the option of remitting your taxes by credit card. This payment option is available to you, regardless if you electronically file your tax return or file a paper return. Credit card payments are currently originated only by Official Payments, who provides this service to the IRS and most other states. Official Payments will charge you a convenience fee, based on the amount of tax being paid. All of the fee goes to Official Payments. Only the tax amount goes to the state. This fee is charged by Official Payments to cover operating costs associated with servicing thousands of transactions. The credit card payment transaction is strictly between you and Official Payments, and therefore, any disputes specific to the card payment are between you and Official Payments. For more details, see the Frequently Asked Questions.
Currently, Nebraska accepts only the credit cards listed below:
- American Express

Whether making your credit card payment by phone or Internet, you will be asked to provide other related information, including your social security number (for individual income tax) or your state ID number (for business taxes), the amount you are paying, and credit card information.
