    We hope you will find filing and paying through the Internet easy and convenient; you will be prompted step-by-step through the process. The fees are as follows:

  • A minimal fee of $2.50 per transaction if you make an online payment using an electronic check.
  • If you choose to pay using a credit card, the credit card processing fee will be passed on to you.
  • If no payment is necessary, there is no fee.
  • Until you “authorize” the payment, you will still have the opportunity to cancel the payment transaction.

    We realize that security is a concern for taxpayers and we have made it a priority to safeguard taxpayer information as you file and pay electronically.

    Our mission at the Department of Taxation is to administer the tax laws of the State of Hawaii in a consistent, uniform, and fair manner.
