what's the IRS Tax Payment and Filing System (EFTPS)?


During each tax quarter we are reminded by the IRS of the following information regarding paying and filing your federal payroll taxes. While it is not a requirement to enroll in the IRS tax payment and filing system (EFTPS), the following statement below from the IRS recommends that you do so:

"Please be aware that you are responsible for the timely filing of employment tax returns and the timely payment of employment taxes for your employees, even if you have authorized a service provider to file the returns and make the payments.  Therefore, the Internal Revenue Service recommends that you enroll in the U.S. Treasury Department's Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) to monitor your account and ensure that timely tax payments are being made for you.  You may enroll in the EFTPS online at www.eftps.gov, or call (800) 555-4477 for an enrollment form. State tax authorities generally offer similar means to verify tax payments. Contact the appropriate state offices directly for details."
