Direct Debit Payment Dates

direct debit payment dates

When a direct debit payment date is entered after April 18, the return must be accepted not more than 5 days after the payment date in order for the debit to be honored.

In addition, the payment date must not be in the future when the return processes. For example: If the payment date is April 30 the return must process at ExacTax on April 30 or after. In addition, the return must be accepted by the IRS no later than May 5 in order for the payment to be valid. Instead, we suggest your clients use DirectPay for federal payments and the FTB payment site for California payments.
