Electronic Funds Transfer
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is an electronic method of making a payment. An EFT is handled through the Automated Clearing House System (ACH), a nationwide network that electronically transfers funds.
There are TWO METHODS of EFT payments:
1-ACH DEBIT METHOD
IF YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PAY TAXES BY EFT, YOU MUST INITIATE YOUR TRANSACTION ON OR BEFORE THE DUE DATE OF THE TAX. THIS APPLIES TO ACH DEBIT USERS ONLY
Direct Payment-Using this method, taxpayers file their return electronically using the TSC program and select a payment date (the date of payment can be any date up to the due date). DRS will electronically debit the selected bank account for the funds on the day that the taxpayer selects. That means that with 1 transaction the return is filed and payment is scheduled. There is no pre-registration requirement to use this option.
If your bank account has a Debit Block on it, your financial institution will need our ‘Originator ID’ or ‘Debit Block ID’ in order for the CT Department of Revenue to originate the debit to your account. Please click here for a list of our Debit block codes.
2-ACH CREDIT METHOD
ACH CREDIT METHOD USERS SHOULD CONSULT WITH THEIR BANKING INSTITUTION FOR GUIDELINES TO ENSURE THAT PAYMENT IS RECEIVED TIMELY
