Rhode Island Online Payment of Personal Income Tax by Credit Card or Debit Card

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Taxpayers may now use their credit cards or debit cards to pay their Rhode
Island personal income tax online, through the Rhode Island Division of Taxation website.

This provides taxpayers with another, convenient option for paying their personal income tax. It
is available now, on the Division of Taxation website, in time for the extended due date of October 17, and in time for the next full tax-filing season, which begins in January 2017.

The credit card and debit card online payment service, created through a partnership with
Rhode Island Interactive LLC, is available through the Division of Taxation website:

The system will accept credit cards and most debit cards and can be used for payments of the following taxes:

  • personal income tax
  • corporate income tax
  • sales and use tax
  • withholding tax

For each transaction with a credit card or debit card, the taxpayer will be charged a transaction
fee equaling 2.0 percent of the transaction amount, plus a $1.00 flat fee.1 You will be notified of
the fee amount before making your payment.

Other payments

Taxpayers may continue to pay their Rhode Island personal income tax by check. In addition,
for personal income tax payments with final returns, taxpayers may pay by automatic debit of
their bank or credit union accounts. (Arrangements for automatic debits are made using tax preparation software and must be completed before the return is electronically filed.)

Certain business taxes may be paid online, via ACH debit/credit, through the following Division
of Taxation website:
