Electronic funds transfer

About electronic funds transfer

Electronic funds transfer (EFT) is an electronic method for moving funds from one account to another. EFT transactions are fast and secure.

You must pay your Oregon combined payroll and corporate excise or income taxes through EFT if you are federally mandated to use the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS).

Paying by EFT is easy

Go to Revenue Online to make ACH debit payments or to submit your ACH credit application. You don't need to sign up for a Revenue Online account to make EFT payments or submit your application. However, with a Revenue Online account, withholding taxpayers can access the Form OR-OTC-V, Oregon Combined Payroll Tax Coupon. All taxpayers can manage their tax accounts, view letters we've sent, and send us messages securely.

We're no longer processing any paper EFT applications or updating information in the Oregon Tax Payment System. This applies to both new applications and requests to update information. If your bank account information changes, you can use Revenue Online to make ACH debit payments using your new account information without submitting an application.

ACH debit payments

Make your ACH debit payment for corporate income and excise or combined payroll taxes.

The confirmation number is issued each time a transaction is completed successfully using either the TelePay or WebPay systems. This confirmation number is unique and identifies your transaction. It serves as proof of your payment and is required to cancel a payment made in error. Always record your confirmation number.

Refunds aren't issued electronically.

ACH debit through Revenue Online: If the payment status is "pending" and the payment is scheduled for a future date, you can cancel it. If it's no longer pending, you can't stop the payment.

Either ACH debit or ACH credit. We don’t accept Fedwire transactions.​

A prenote is a zero-dollar transaction used to verify your routing and account numbers. We initiate ACH debit prenotes And your financial institution initiates ACH credit prenotes.​

The difference between ACH debit and ACH credit is the way the transaction is initiated.

With an ACH debit transaction, you initiate the payment by notifying the state through Revenue Online or the Oregon Tax Payment System that you'd like to make a payment. The state then debits your account. The state doesn't charge for ACH debit transactions.

With an ACH credit transaction, you request that your financial institution initiates the payment. Your financial institution then transmits the funds to the state's account. The state doesn't charge for ACH credit transactions, but your financial institution may charge various fees for initiating ACH credit transactions.​

The first payment submitted by EFT may take up to eight days to be debited due to ACH prenote requirements on new accounts. For following payments, your financial institution should debit your account on the next banking day following the date of payment that you entered for the transaction.​

For ACH debit payments initiated through the Oregon Tax Payment System, you must complete your transaction no later than 6 p.m. Pacific Time (PT) one banking day before the requested date of payment. You can initiate the payment up to 45 banking days prior to the due date.

For ACH debit payments initiated through Revenue Online, you must complete your transaction no later than 11:59 p.m. PT on the day you want your payment to post.​

You must pay your Oregon combined payroll and estimated corporation excise or income taxes using EFT if you are federally mandated to use the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS).​
