The California Department of Employment Development accepts EFT-Debit and EFT-Credit payments of unemployment taxes.

How to apply

The California Department of Employment Development requires all EFT users to submit form DE 26 EFT Authorization Agreement for approval prior to submitting tax payment files.

Payment and other information

ACH files for CA withholding (SDI/PIT) are automatically processed separately from CA unemployment (UI/ETT) payments, resulting in the creation of two ACH files when the separate liabilities are paid together. This ensures that both files can use the appropriate format and tax type codes and that amounts are reported correctly to the state.
