If I provide my bank account information with an electronic payment, what does the Department do with that information?

The Department's electronic bank payment process allows the taxpayer to create an electronic payment by inputting the bank routing number and bank account number, along with the amount of the payment. This process uses only the information that is found on the front of the taxpayer's check.

 If a payment is made by paper check, the department keeps an electronic image of that check (which shows the account number and other information) for several years, as required by law. If, on the other hand, the taxpayer inputs the bank account information to create an electronic payment, the Department retains the information only if the taxpayer marks to “Save this payment for future use”.
