Well It Looks Like I Can't File My Taxes Online!

I tried filing my taxes online today and found out that I couldn't go through with it because since I owe taxes the IRS forms that I am filing online requires me to give them my banking information so that they can automatically deduct the tax that I owe directly from my bank account.

Since I didn't want to give this information it looks as though I won't be able to file my taxes online so I will will have to fill out the IRS forms by hand and then mail it in.

This is kind of a bummer because if I file my taxes online then that means that the IRS will get it sooner. But it looks like I'm going to have to fill out the forms manually and then mail them in. I certainly don't want them going into my bank account - mainly because I don't have the money to pay them just yet!

Well to look at the bright side at least I still have time to mail in the forms. Hopefully I'll be able to get by with putting just one stamp on the envelope but I may have to resign myself to the fact that it just might take more than one stamp to mail in the forms because there are three forms that have to be mailed and I don't want to take any chances that this mail could come back - especially when it has to do with the IRS!
