The Alabama Department of Revenue (ADOR) accepts EFT Debit and EFT Credit payments of withholding taxes.

How to apply

The Alabama Department of Revenue requires all EFT users to apply for approval before submitting tax payment files.

For more information about making EFT payments and to obtain the State of Alabama's authorization agreement, please visit the Alabama Department of Revenue website and navigate to E Services > Payment > Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) page.

Payment and other information

To assure the timely receipt of payment for a tax type, a taxpayer must ensure that the financial institution originating the transaction does so in sufficient time for the payment to be deposited as immediately available funds (collected funds) to the State of Alabama's bank account no later than the following business day after the payment due date.

If a tax payment due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, Alabama ACH Association holiday, or Alabama legal bank holiday, payment by EFT is required so the payment settles (is credited to the State of Alabama's bank account) on the first business day after the due date of the payment.

If the date on which the taxpayer is required to initiate an ACH Credit transaction falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a business or banking holiday, the taxpayer must initiate the transaction on the preceding business day.
