The Electronic Federal Tax Payment System has features that can help small business employers meet their tax obligations. Treasury regulations require employment tax deposits be made electronically. Whether employers prepare and submit payroll taxes themselves or hire a payroll service provider, payments should be made using EFTPS.
This system is secure, accurate, easy to use and provides immediate confirmation of each transaction. Anyone can use EFTPS. The service is free of charge and allows employers to make and verify federal tax payments electronically 24 hours a day, seven days a week online or by phone.
Employers who use a payroll service provider can verify that payments are made by using EFTPS online. Visit the EFTPS webpage to learn more. Employers can enroll at EFTPS.gov, or by calling the EFTPS Customer Service at 800-555-4477 for an enrollment form.
The IRS recommends that employers do not change their address of record to that of their payroll service provider because it may limit the their ability to be informed about tax matters concerning their business.
