|Bulletin Name:||Sales Tax Payments via ACH|
Effective June 20, 2011, the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance (DTF) has mandated ACH debit payments as the preferred payment for State agencies to remit sales tax monies to the State.
|Sales Tax Payments:||
Sales Tax Web File is the easiest and fastest way to file sales and use tax returns and make payments. Payors will receive an electronic confirmation number with the date and time that returns are filed electronically.
State agencies that transmit sales tax collections to the NYS Tax Department by electronic funds transfer (EFT) using Automated Clearinghouse (ACH) debit, are advised to immediately contact OSC’s Division of Investments and Cash Management since a debit block or debit filter may have been instituted on your agency’s account to prevent unauthorized withdrawals. With either of these in place, your agency’s sales tax payments cannot be successfully transmitted and if your payment is rejected you could receive a bill for the amount due that may include penalty and interest.
|Questions:||Please contact Gary Harper in OSC’s Division of Investments and Cash Management at 518-486-4642 so that arrangements can be made to prevent your bank from rejecting the payment.
