Can we make current year tax return payment via credit card before the tax return is electronically filed?

I want to use my credit card to make a IRS tax payment due to promotional offer on my card but I don't want to submit my return electronically until July 12,2020 in case I find errors on tax return. can i make a 2019 tax payment for my 2019 tax return before electronically submitting the return? or do i need to submit tax return first then it gets accepted before making credit card payment?

You can pay before the return is filed. Just make sure the payment is credited to the correct tax year. It can be difficult to change the year after the payment is posted to your account.
