Electronic Payment Modes

Credit Card

Check with your credit card issuing bank if they offer any payment scheme to pay income tax via credit card. You can also use Mastercard (Credit or Debit cards) to pay tax on AXS e-Station over the internet or AXS m-Station mobile app. Credit card payments are not offered by IRAS directly because of the high transaction costs charged by the credit card service providers. This is to keep the cost of collection low to preserve public funds.

Telegraphic Transfer

Telegraphic Transfer is only for payments from overseas where the payment modes listed above are not applicable.
