Wage Attachment Payments

All employers must submit wage attachment payments electronically unless they have been granted an exception. We offer two electronic payment methods:

My Tax Account

In My Tax Account you are able to:

  • View a list of all open wage attachments for your employees

  • Notify DOR that an employee has terminated employment or has seasonal employment

  • View a history of payments made

  • View changes to the amount to be withheld for each employee

  • Schedule payments for up to 30 days in the future

  • Step 1 - Set up your user profile by entering logon information

  • Step 2 - Authenticate your customer information using the business information

Already Using My Tax Account?

Add access to your wage attachment account to your existing profile.

ACH Credit

Large businesses can submit a bulk ACH file. Each bulk ACH file allows up to 9,999 payments.

DOR uses the TPP standard for ACH wage attachment payments. See Related Links on the right for TPP Standard and DOR TPP Technical Specifications. We do not accept wage attachment payments using the TXP standard or XML.

Businesses wishing to submit bulk ACH files must contact DOR to submit a complete test file for approval. Testing requirements are explained in the TPP Technical Specifications under Related Links on the right.
