EFT Reporting Instructions - ACH Credit
Note Regarding Sales Tax Pre-payments: When formatting your ACH Credit addenda make sure to use the last day of the current month for the period end date, not the period due date. Failure to use the proper period end date could result in the payment being applied to an incorrect filing period and assessment.
Example: 111031 represents the period end date of Oct. 31, 2011. 2011 is the tax year, 10 for the month of October, and 31 for the last day of the month.
