IMPORTANT Information Regarding ACH Payment
The EFD system currently utilizes the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system for facilitating payments of state filing and system use fees. As such, the EFD system must abide by the Electronic Payments Association (NACHA) operating rules in order to accept payments through this mechanism. The NACHA operating rules strive to limit the number of payments returned due to filers inputting the wrong account and/or routing number.
The viability of this method of payment ultimately depends on filers limiting errors when inputting account and routing numbers within the payment field. It is imperative that you verify your account information is correct before submitting your filing through the EFD system.
NOT ALL FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS ALLOW ACH PAYMENTS!
For each unique ACH account, it is strongly recommended that you speak with the appropriate financial institution about the ability to utilize the ACH function from the bank account in question and verify that the transaction is authorized.
If you have any questions regarding the verification of your payment information, please contact EFD Support at (601) 453-1979 or email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
