Payment Options

The payment options available are the Automatic Clearing House (ACH) Debit, ACH Credit, Credit Card and Debit Card (treated as credit card). 

ACH Debit – The ACH debit method allows you to transfer funds by initiating a request for debit to your bank account using the city’s E-File/E-Pay Program. To access the Columbus Tax E-File/E-Pay system, you must have an established City tax account and a City-assigned PIN.

ACH Credit – At your request, your bank transfers a payment into the City’s account together with a required addenda record of identifying information.  

Credit Card - Currently, MasterCard and Visa are accepted for paying any remittances with these electronic returns using the city’s E-File/E-Pay Program. A convenience fee will be added to your credit card transaction.

Debit Card - If your debit card is branded (i.e. Master Card or Visa) it can be used to electronically pay the tax using the city’s E-File/E-Pay Program. Like the credit card, a convenience fee will be added to your debit card transaction.
