How to Pay Your Tax Bill

When it comes to paying your tax bill, HMRC accepts most payment methods. For many today the easiest is paying online by card. The snag here is that you can only use a debit card. You could pay through a direct debit or through a direct bank transfer. A little more old-fashioned way is paying by cheque at post, or at your bank or building society; in which case you need to remember to bring a paying-in slip from HMRC.
