The online payment system has been in the works for the past several months, with multiple tests being run to ensure that it is working properly and functioning as intended. Overall, the testing went well, with only a few minor issues to address.
As planned, the online system is scheduled to roll out at the end of December. Instructions on how to set-up an account to pay online will be sent out with 4th quarter tax returns next month.
Businesses will have the option to pay with a credit card or bank account. The non-refundable processing fee for credit cards is 2.4% and a $1.50 for the e-check option. All major credit cards are accepted.
Other functions available with the online payment system include:
- Paying monthly instead of quarterly
- Submission of zero tax returns electronically
- Updating business information such as address, phone number, and email
- Adding/Deleting Properties (Property Management Companies)
Stay tuned for more information that will come available next month.
