Choose Carefully with EFTPS

Tax TipsUsing Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) to Pay a Split Spousal Assessment

As a reminder, taxpayers can use EFTPS to pay their taxes. When using EFTPS to pay a split spousal assessment, ensure the selection of the correct form to accurately apply the payment. If a user selects the wrong form (such as “Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return” instead of “Form 1040, Separate Assessment/Innocent Spouse“) the payment will post to the joint account rather than the separate assessment account as the taxpayer intends. To have a payment correctly applied to MFT 31:

  • Select the payment tab.
  • Open the dropdown menu on “Select Tax Form.”
  • Select “1040 Separate Assessment/Innocent Spouse.”
