ACH Credit Payments
The City of Westminster is pleased to offer ACH Credit as a payment option for most tax return types. This method allows taxpayers to initiate a credit to the city's bank account via the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system. The payment related data transmitted by the taxpayer allows the city to automatically match the payment with the return mailed by the taxpayer.
Westminster's ACH Credit program has requirements similar to most state tax deparments. Taxpayers interested in utilizing this method should review Tax Compliance Guide topic 374. This publication contains important instructions regarding the content and format of the ACH payment file, including the proper format of the required addenda record.
Enrollment is easy. Simply complete an ACH Credit Payment Authorization form, and return it to the Sales Tax Division via mail, fax, or e-mail. Upon approval, a letter containing the city's banking information will be mailed to the ACH contact.
Other Electronic Payment Options
Not all taxpayers will be able to initiate ACH Credit payments with the required addenda records. Taxpayers unable to pay by this method can file and pay sales and use tax returns electronically using the city's F.A.S.T. Filing system. Payment is made by ACH Debit (a withdrawal initiated by the city after the due date). Advance registration is not required to utilize F.A.S.T. Filing.
