IRS Awards RBS WorldPay E-payments Contract

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has awarded RBS WorldPay a multi-year contract to provide electronic payment solutions for individual and business taxes.

RBS WorldPay, in partnership with Value Payment Systems, will begin processing tax payments through and 888-9-PAY-TAX starting 1 January 2010. Through the RBS WorldPay tax payment services, taxpayers will be able to make payments to the IRS securely with various credit cards, debit cards and emerging payment methods for less than any other federal tax electronic payment service provider.

“Consumers and businesses alike are now able to pay their taxes and fees online via their credit or debit card,” said Ian Stuttard, president and chief executive of RBS WorldPay. “It’s safe, secure and convenient. RBS WorldPay has been providing comprehensive, electronic payment processing for merchants for over 20 years. We currently process billions of dollars in payments annually, and government payment processing is a high-growth business where we anticipate making an impact. By partnering with Value Payment Systems, we were able to combine their management team’s extensive experience in handling government payments, in particular with the IRS, with our secure processing platform. This is truly a winning combination.”
