Notice to taxpayers using a corporate bank account to transmit payments through this internet application:

Payments initiated through this on-line application are sent to the receiving bank via the Automated Clearing House (ACH) as a 'CCD' transaction type. Some customers have filters or debit blocks on their bank account that would prohibit this type of payment from being processed without the receiving bank's prior knowledge of Tennessee Department of Revenue's intent to debit the bank account designated in the payment transmission. This can be resolved by providing the bank with the following 10-digit Company I. D. number (or identifier) to store on file prior to initiating payments through this F&E on-line application.
