Electronic federal tax payment system (EFTPS)

The electronic federal tax payment system (EFTPS) is the tax payment service provided by the U.S. Department of Treasury. Companies who are enrolled with EFTPS can make federal tax payments electronically and can monitor their tax payments on the EFTPS website.

The IRS considers employers responsible for the timely filing of employment tax returns and the timely payment of employment taxes for your employees, even if you have authorized a third party to file the returns and make the payments. Therefore, the IRS and Gusto recommend that you periodically log in to EFTPS to monitor your account and ensure that timely tax payments are being made for you.

  • State tax authorities generally offer similar means to verify tax payments. Contact the appropriate state offices directly for details. You can find agency contact information here

If you sign up with Gusto, we'll enroll your company in the EFTPS tax payment service. We use our own EFTPS Personal Identification Number (PIN) to make payments on behalf of your company. You may receive a letter containing a new EFTPS PIN number, which you can use to log into EFTPS and view payments we've made on your behalf at any time.

  • If you're already enrolled with EFTPS, we'll still enroll you so Gusto has access to process your tax payments. You therefore may receive a letter with a new EFTPS PIN, which will allow you to view any federal tax payments we've made.

Gusto will make your federal tax deposits to the IRS based on your company's federal tax deposit schedule, found by clicking the Taxes & compliance section and selecting Tax setup. To see past payments made, run an agency payments report.
