Online payment uses Pay.gov, a program of the U.S. Department of Treasury, Bureau of the Fiscal Service, that facilitates payments to various government agencies. You do not need to create an account to make payments, but having an account gives you more tools to manage and track your payments. More information about pay.gov can be found here: https://www.pay.gov/WebHelp/HTML/about2.html.
