Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

The North Carolina Department of Revenue accepts EFT-Debit and EFT-Credit payments of withholding taxes.

How to apply

The North Carolina Department of Revenue requires all EFT users to submit Form EFT-100 Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization Agreement prior to submitting tax payment files.

For more information about making EFT payments and to obtain Form EFT-100 Electronic Funds Transfer Authorization Agreement, please visit the North Carolina Department of Revenue website and navigate to the Electronic Services > Businesses page.

Payment and other information

If you are paying via EFT, you are not required to file Forms NC-5 and NC-5P. However, Form NC-3 is still required annually. Semiweekly filers must also file Form NC-5Q quarterly. If Form NC-5Q has an amount due, the payment should be made by check accompanied by payment Form NC-5P.
