DRS: Electronic Funds Transfer - BUS

Electronic Funds Transfer

You may pay by ACH Debit Method by logging in to our Taxpayer Service Center (TSC).

You may also pay by ACH Credit Method. Prior to paying using this method you must pre-register using Form EFT-1, Authorization Agreement for Electronic Funds Transfers .


For information on ACH Debit Method and ACH Credit Method see below.

 
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.
Debit Block Codes- A debit block is when you have notified your bank or financial institution to reject all debit requests against your account unless you have provided a specific vendor "debit block code." If you use debit block on your bank account you can still make payments through the CT Taxpayer Service Center (TSC). Your bank will process only authorized transactions.

To ensure your debit payments are successful, you should:

  • Speak with your bank before setting up a debit payment.
  • Provide the Company ID to your financial institution so payments made through the TSC will be accepted through your debit block.
  • In addition to the Company ID, you will need to provide your bank with the Company Name: “State of Connecticut – Department of Revenue”

Note: Failure to provide this information may cause your bank to reject your payment. DRS may send you a bill for the amount due, including penalty and interest.

ACH CREDIT METHOD
 
ACH CREDIT METHOD USERS SHOULD CONSULT WITH THEIR BANKING INSTITUTION FOR GUIDELINES TO ENSURE THAT PAYMENT IS RECEIVED TIMELY
  • Taxpayers must pre-register with the EFT Unit prior to using this option.   The taxpayer initiates an electronic payment through their banking institution. This payment must be sent in the ACH standard CCD+TXP format.  The taxpayer may also electronically file the return using the TSC program.
