New (tax) year, new help!

Fixed Assets and UltraTax CS 2023 help is now on Help and Support. We're still moving articles, but you can find most content for the 2023 tax year there. Continue using the Help & How-To Center for tax years 2022 and older.

You can use Electronic Funds Withdrawal (EFW) to pay amounts for the following:

  • Form 990-PF returns, extensions, and estimates 
  • 990-T extensions
  • 4720 extensions
  • 990-PF estimates

You can only use EFW on returns you e-file. 

To choose EFW as the payment method: 

  1. Go to the ELF-2 screen in the Electronic Filing folder and enter the bank account information.
  2. For 990-PF estimates, mark the Electronic funds withdrawal for Form 990-PF estimated payments field.
  3. Go to the ELF screen and make sure the File this return electronically box is marked. 
  4. For everything except 990-PF estimates, scroll down the ELF screen and enter a Requested payment date.
  5. For 990-PF returns only, you can force a partial payment by using the Tax payment (Force) field.
