Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) ProgramDR 5782 (11/12/15) Colorado Department of Revenue Electronic Funds Transferred (EFT) Program For Tax Payments The Colorado Department of Revenue requires all organizations filing fuel, cigarette or tobacco taxes, severance withholding tax, employers with annual wage withholding liabilities greater than $50,000.00, and businesses with annual state sales tax liabilities greater than $75,000.00 to pay through Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). Other individuals and organizations may also choose to pay electronically. Electronic payments offer you a number of benefits: • The cost and time to write checks is eliminated. • You know exactly when your account will be debited. • You are assured that the funds are received on time, every time. • You may also register to pay other taxes electronically. For all taxes except wage withholding, estimated income, • income, income extensions, estimated severance and PUC fixed utility fees you will still need to file a tax return. You must file a complete sales and use tax return at the same time you make a sales/use tax payment. Electronic Payment Options Colorado's Electronic Funds Transfer program offers two methods of electronic payment: Automated Clearing House Debit (ACH debit), Web payment and telephone options. Automated Clearing House Credit (ACH credit). • • Automated Clearing House Debit To remit taxes via ACH debit e-check, access our Web site or place a call to a toll-free number. Both processes will prompt you to enter seven pieces of information: your EFT identification number, your PIN (Personal Identification Number), tax type code, filing period ending date, dollar amount owed, the settlement/effective date, and your phone number. The systems, in return, provide a reference number as proof of payment. The funds are withdrawn from your account as soon as the following day. We offer payment warehousing which provides the opportunity to designate a payment date up to 365 days in the future, allowing you to place your payment in advance of the due date and have your funds withdrawn on the specified date. The Department of Revenue pays for the transaction. Our Web feature allows you to make tax payments, access your phone and Web payment history, change your PIN, and add or change banking information online through a secured Web site. Please check out our Web site at www.taxcolorado.com and select "Electronic Payments" under "Online Services." Automated Clearing House Credit To initiate an ACH credit, instruct your financial institution to transfer funds from your account to the Department of Revenue's depository account. ACH Credits for Paying Taxes The ACH credit must be formatted utilizing the tax payment (TXP) within the addenda record of a CCD+ application. The ACH credit must be initiated on, or before, the due date; the funds are transferred to be received the next day by the Department of Revenue. The TXP addenda convention has been provided in this guide. Your financial institution may charge you for the transaction. Since some financial institutions can not originate ACH transactions, please contact them for more information. ACH Credits for Paying Third Party Payments (TPP) The Third-Party Tax Payments (TPP) are those payments made by a third-party to a federal or state taxing agency on behalf of a delinquent taxpayer. Examples of third-party payments are 1) payments from employers or financial institutions in response to tax agency levies to garnish employee wages or accounts for tax liability and 2) employee tax withholdings remitted by payroll service providers on behalf of employers. For more information on the Third Party Payment (TPP) convention, please refer to our Web site https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/sites/default/files/DR5774.pdf A letter will be mailed to you with the State of Colorado Department of Revenue bank information and file layout for ACH Credit. You will be able to work with your bank to send any transactions through them using the proper format.

About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
