Making the Switch to EFTPS
Beginning in 2011, taxpayers will no longer be able to make tax deposits (e.g. employment tax, excise tax, corporate income tax) using Form 8109, the Federal Tax deposit Coupon. These deposits must be made using the EFTPS (Electronic Federal Tax Payment System).
However, a small number of businesses—typically, those with a federal tax liability of less than $2,500 per quarter—would have the option of mailing a check with their quarterly or annual returns.
If your business is required to make deposits electronically, a 10% penalty may be charged for each non—electronic deposit made.
