EFT Federal Tax Payment Info: Amount Type

Used only if Addenda Type is “Tax Payment”.


It is suggested that you refer to your “EFTPS Payment Instruction Booklet” for more detailed information about entry requirements for this field.

Specify the Amount Type (Tax Information ID Number). This will be the Subcategory or IRS Number from the EFTPS Payment Instruction Booklet. If none, enter the Form Code specified above.

For example, if you are using Form Code "94105” (Employer’s Quarterly Tax Return – Forms 941), there are three Subcategories: Social Security=1, Medicare=2, and Withheld=3. Social Security would be the first subcategory, therefore, you would enter “1” in this field.
