Working with Payment Plan Requests in TAP

You can request a payment plan. You also can change a request you've already submitted.

Requesting a payment plan

You can request a payment plan through TAP when we've processed your return and your balance is reflected in TAP.

Tips:

  • Pay as much as you can before the due date.
  • You can make extra payments anytime. This reduces your balance, as well as interest and penalty.
  • You'll need your bank routing number and account number from the bottom of your checks. The routing number is the first group of numbers, and the account number is the middle group. Don't include the last group, which is your check number.

  5. Follow the instructions to complete your request. When asked when you want the payment plan to start, you must choose a date that's between 10 and 40 days from the date you submit this request.
