About Agency Forms
A form consists of the pages on Pay.gov where you enter information about what you are paying for.
A form is not the separate payment page where you provide the financial information, such as an account number, for the actual payment.
For example, the form may require you choose the permit or license your are buying or fill in the account number identifying what is being paid for.
A form must be completed for all payments made on Pay.gov.
You must use the correct form. Links to common forms and their payments are on Pay.gov's home page. You can also search for forms and agencies.
Tip: Descriptions for some forms may be similar. If you are not certain which form to use, contact the agency you need to pay for instructions.
There are two types of forms and their accompanying payments.
Public forms and payments — forms and payments available to anyone visiting Pay.gov. Logging in is not required.
Private forms and payments — forms and payments available only to customers authorized by an agency. Log in is always required. You will be notified by the agency if you have private payments and the agency will usually set up a Pay.gov account for you.
