Tax Direct Debit Question

I filed my tax return on Feb 8th, and it was accepted Feb 9. I owed money on my return and on the efile docs, I opted for the lump sum to be directly debited from my account on Feb 15. This money has still not been debited. I called the IRS, who says the return is still processing but they don't see any info on the transcript that shows a direct debit so they told me to call the electronic payment office. The e-payment office said they too do not see any information pertaining to a payment to be directly debited. They suggested that I send a check to avoid any interest penalties, but I am worried that the IRS will magically find this page that has the direct debit info on it, and I will wind up making duplicate payments.

So I was just wondering if anyone else owed money on their taxes and opted for the direct debit, if so, has the money been taken from your account yet and on the date you specified?


Thanks for any help or suggestions!

Funds are usually withdrawn on the payment date you specified, as your e-filed return has been accepted by the IRS.When you make your payment, you will receive a confirmation number at the end of the transaction. This confirmation number confirms the submission of your payment. A list of approved ePay service providers can be found on the IRS website, IRS.gov. You may call IRS e-file Payment Services at 1-888-353-4537 to cancel a payment.
