Electronic Funds Transfer

Electronic Check Option (ACH):

You may pay by ACH Debit Method by using our Taxpayer Service Center (TSC).

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.  List of Debit block codes.
