Setting Up Payment Channels in TAP

Payment channels let TAP know where the payment is coming from (e.g., bank, credit union). This guide will explain:

  • How to add payment information to TAP account
  • How to change payment information
  • How to remove payment information

Set up a payment channel

  1. Click the Settings link.
  2. Click on the Payment Channels tab.
  3. Click on the Set up new payment channel link.
  4. Enter the required information.
  5. For the Name field, enter anything that makes sense to you, such as "Sales Tax Checking."
  6. Press the Save button at the bottom of the page.

If you want to add a channel for just one account

  1. Follow the instructions above to set up at least one payment channel.
  2. Click on the Settings link.
  3. Click on the Payment Channels tab.
  4. Choose the tax type for the account you want to make payment channel changes to.
  5. Click on the Set up new payment channel link.
  6. Proceed with steps 4-6 as listed above.

To change payment channel (bank, etc.) information for multiple tax accounts

  2. Go to Settings and click on Payment Channels.
  3. Click on any tax type link.
  4. Find the payment channel you'd like to use and click on "Set as default". Click "Yes."

  4. Click "Remove this payment channel." Click "Yes". Click "OK."

If you have a debit block on your account:

If you previously received an originator number to authorize your bank to allow the Tax Commission to take tax payments from your account via ACH Debit, you'll need to now provide your bank with a different number for use with TAP.

That number is 6826001011.
