    Fees for Paying by Credit/Debit Card

    When paying by credit/debit card, a service fee is charged for each payment transaction. This fee is charged by the payment provider to the card being used.

    The Iowa Department of Revenue does not receive or charge any fees for payments.

    You will be asked to enter information such as:

    • The type of tax or fee
    • A bill or invoice number
    • Your card information
    • The amount of the current tax payment or billed delinquent payment
    • Your Social Security Number, business permit number, or federal identification number

    The system will:

    • Tell you the total of your payment including the appropriate fee
    • Obtain approval of the charge
    • Issue an onscreen confirmation number and a printable digital receipt
    • Send a confirmation email to users who request it
    • Separate the charges on your card statement: the tax amount on one line, the convenience fee amount on a separate line
  • ACH Debit

    ACH debit blocks are set up with a bank to protect bank account(s) from unauthorized electronic charges. If you or your business have an ACH debit block set up on your banking account, you must provide your bank with the Department’s Company ID to make payments using GovConnectIowa.

    What should you do?

    • Contact your bank and provide the Department’s Company ID: 9426004574.

    If you don't provide your bank with the Department’s Company-ID, your bank will reject the payment.

    If your payment is rejected, you may receive a bill for the amount due, including any applicable penalty and interest. If you are unsure about whether you have a debit block on your bank account, please contact your bank.

    ACH Credit

    This electronic payment option is available for these business taxes:

    • Withholding tax
    • Sales and Use tax
    • Water Service Excise tax
    • Fuel Tax
    • Corporate income tax

    Note: Individual Income tax may not be paid by ACH Credit.

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

    When paying by ACH Credit, you must provide our ACH Credit bank account information to your bank instead of providing us with your bank account information.

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

    Additional Information:

    If you file a tax return showing a zero balance due, do not initiate a zero ACH Credit payment.

    Transaction reversals are not allowed from the State’s bank account. For questions regarding misapplied payments, please contact the Iowa Department of Revenue at 855-314-4692 or

    Iowa withholding, sales and use, water service excise, and fuel tax returns are filed through the Department's Online Services. A tax return must still be filed when payment is made by ACH Credit.
