Payment / Filing Options for Business

You can make an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) of money from one financial institution to another through either Automated Clearing House (ACH) Debit or ACH Credit. ACH is a nationwide network used by the Federal Reserve to handle electronic payments. Electronic payments are a safe and efficient way to make tax payments. 

Payment Methods

There are two basic methods of paying by EFTACH Debit and ACH Credit.

  • When you use ACH Debit, you authorize how much and when the City can take money from your bank account to pay your taxes.
  • When you use ACH Credit, you tell your bank how much and when to send money to the City to pay your taxes.
