Payments via Credit
You must be pre-approved by the Alabama Department of Revenue to make ACH Credit Method Payments. To register with the ADOR, complete and submit the Authorization Agreement for ACH Credit Payment Method form.
Taxpayers granted the authority to use the ACH Credit payment method are responsible for coordinating with their financial institutions to ensure that ACH Credit payments are timely and properly initiated. To be considered timely paid pursuant to Section 41-1-20, Code of Alabama 1975, effective October 1, 2006, the payment must be immediately available to the State on or before the first banking day following the due date of payment. To be properly made, the ACH Credit must include the tax payment (TXP) banking convention within the addendum record of a NACHA CCD+ transaction as provided in the ACH Credit Method TXP Banking Convention Addenda Record Format. The TXP conventions must be followed exactly for proper posting of payment. Other addenda banking conventions should not be used.
