Paying by ACH Credit

For your convenience, we offer ACH credit as an additional method of payment.  ACH credit is when you request a bill payment through your bank.

Credit transfers

To pay by credit transfer, you must first contact your bank to confirm that they offer ACH credit origination services.  

If  you are paying a tax debt, you can request that they transfer funds to the state's bank account for the Minnesota Tax ID number, tax type, and amount you specify. Your bank will need the department's bank information to complete this transfer.  They may charge you a fee for this service. 

Starting Jan. 1, 2014, you can send wage levy payments using ACH credit.  Watch this page for more information. 

If you choose to pay by ACH, please call the Department of Revenue at 651-556-3000 for our bank account information. 

Credit banking formats

Supplemental filing information must be sent with your payment using the ACH standard CCD+ format and TXP or TPP Addendum Record standards. If your bank offers this service, they will have this information. Otherwise, they can get this information through the links below:

When using TXP addendum standards, be sure to use the correct tax type code. View a list of TXP tax type codes.
