arethinn: cartoon redhead saying "XCGH???" (confused (haley XCGH))
Has anyone out there used the IRS's Direct Pay online bank transfer payment thingy when mailing a tax return (not filing electronically)? The 1040 instructions don't say you can't mix these methods (in fact seem to be encouraging me to do so in lieu of a paper check) but I can't figure out what would be the right order to do things in.

If I make the payment the same day, say, without first waiting for the return forms to be delivered in San Francisco, then they get this weird payment in advance and I'm not sure how it would be properly linked with the paper after the fact. But if I try to schedule the payment so that it falls after when I guess the return will arrive in San Francisco, then I've sent in a 1040 stating I owe but which doesn't include any payment (and I don't see, like, a box to check stating my intent to pay online).

Can anyone advise which way around I ought to go?
