ACH Credit

This payment option is available for:

  • Withholding tax
  • Sales/Use and Water Excises tax
  • Motor Fuel Tax
  • Corporate income tax

ACH Credit is not an option for the payment of individual income tax.

ACH Credit transactions must be initiated a day before the due date.

When paying by ACH Credit, you provide our Department's transaction information to your bank instead of providing us with your banking information.

First, contact your bank for further information about their ACH Credit payment services and cost. Then, open, review, and follow our required ACS Credit Payment Instructions (pdf). You may share these instructions with your bank.

Additional Information:

Zero Payments: Do not initiate a zero payment, but file your return showing zero due so you will not receive a delinquency notice.

Transaction reversals are not allowed from the State’s bank account. For questions regarding misapplied payments, please contact the Iowa Department of Revenue at 1-800-338-4692 or

Note to Business Tax Filers:

Iowa withholding, sales/use taxes and LPG fuel taxes are now filed through the Department's eFile & Pay System. A return must still be filed when payment is made by ACH Credit.
