Important reminder!

Licenses for Payroll CS, Trial Balance CS, and Write-Up CS (but not Engagement CS) permanently expired on March 1, 2017. CSA will not include 2017 tax rates or payroll forms, so, for 2017 and beyond, you will need to process payroll in another application. We recommend Accounting CS Payroll and myPay Solutions. For more information, see the following topics.

Each taxpayer must be enrolled and linked to a particular Batch Filer before a tax deposit can be processed. If a taxpayer changes from one Batch Filer to another, a new enrollment must be submitted. According to batch filer regulations, enrolling a taxpayer into the EFTPS system requires that your client sign a Form 8655. To indicate that this form has been submitted to the IRS, the notation 8655 must be entered in the Signature Equivalent field of the Enrollment file. Because CSA does this automatically when you submit an enrollment file, you should take steps to be in compliance with this requirement.

Use the following procedure to create and transmit an EFTPS enrollment file to import into your EFTPS Batch File software - either EFTBF (Batch Filer) or BatchFilerPC32.

  1. Choose Utilities > EFTPS Batch Filer Export.
  2. Verify or modify the batch file location by clicking on the File Maintenance button. See Maintaining EFTPS files.

    Note: Be sure to make note of this location so you can find it easily when importing the file into your transmission software.

  3. In the Enrollment tab of the EFTPS Batch Filer Export dialog, enter the appropriate enrollment information for the open client.
  4. Click the Create button to create the enrollment file.
  5. Open your EFTPS bank software and import the EFTPS enrollment file(s) by following either the Importing and Transmitting Payment or Enrollment Files for EFTBF (Batch Filer) or the Importing and Transmitting Payment or Enrollment Files for BatchFilerPC32 procedure.
