Subject: Check vs. EFTPS: Does it matter which? Date: 6/1/2012 7:50 PM

I know about EFTPS, but I've never used it before. (I did just enroll, but I won't be able to use it until I receive my PIN in the mail.)

I'm just wondering if there's any reason to prefer a real paper check versus using the EFTPS.

FWIW, I have an immediate need to send the IRS money: I owe them $9.69 because of an error I made in my 2011 tax return.

But I'll also need to send them quarterly estimated tax payments, since my wife and I are both self-employed.

So, does anyone here have strong opinions for or against EFTPS?
