I read in the newspaper today that the IRS will allow people next year to pay their taxes with a credit card. Right now Visa is the only card company that has not agree too. The taxpayer will pay the 1%-3% transaction cost that the card company adds each time the card is used.

That's all we need now. The feds helping people run up their cards.

My state (IN) allowed taxpayers to pay via Discover. It was treated as a cash advance, and was not subject to the cash back bonus. I think there were some other charges in there as well. I didn't pay very close attention to it due to the unfavorable transaction costs.
