When you set up scheduled tax payments for e-pay, you need to identify and set up a payroll liability bank account in your QuickBooks Chart of Accounts for your e-pay transactions.
Agencies use the e-pay bank account information to process the e-pay transaction.
Be aware that tax agencies have different procedures you must follow when you set up or change a bank account that you use for e-payments:
Agencies that require enrollment
Agencies that do not require enrollment
Important: Intuit never holds the funds when you submit an e-payment—instead, Intuit acts as the transmitter and passes the payment information to the agency, who debits your bank account directly.
To do this task
Set up the bank account in your QuickBooks Chart of Accounts.
Go to the Employees menu and click Payroll Setup.
Navigate to E-pay Accounts.
Follow the onscreen instructions. What type of information do I need to have on hand?
Bank account name
Click Finish when you're finished.
Make sure that the bank account that you want to use is set up for e-pay. To set up or verify that a bank account is set up for e-pay, follow the steps provided above.
For agencies that don't require enrollment, you only need to change the bank account for e-payments in QuickBooks; you don't need to contact the agency.
For agencies that determine your e-pay bank account based on enrollment, you may also need to update your current enrollment, or re-enroll with the tax agency. In addition, if you have asked QuickBooks to remember your e-pay login information, you need to remember to update
the saved information with your new bank account number.
For current requirements and detailed instructions for changing your bank account with the agency, visit the Bank Account Change Information page on the Payroll Tax Support web site.
