Notes on Agency Registration:

  • If you have been notified (mandated) by the IRS of your requirement to pay your taxes electronically (EFTPS), you will find our Tax Payment Service a way to meet this IRS requirement. Please note that our enrollment form 8655 does not replace EFTPS Form 9779 sent to mandated businesses by the IRS. Mandated businesses must complete and submit Form 9779 directly to the IRS. If you are not mandated to pay your taxes electronically, and wish to make your tax payments electronically, then all you need to do is complete the Federal and State Tax Payment Service Setup Form and Form 8655.

  • For State Tax Payments - It is important to follow the appropriate state agency's enrollment procedures prior to being setup on Northern Trust Company Tax Payment Service. If you are not setup with the state correctly and a tax payment is initiated by the bank, your payment may be rejected.

Be sure to include the following when mailing to the address above:


  • Completed Federal and State Payment Service Setup form
  • Form 8655 - Reporting Agent Authorization
  • State Identification number and tax types are required on setup form

Each individual Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) needs to be enrolled separately. You may make copies of all the forms for separate FEIN enrollment. Only the authorized signers for each FEIN may sign the forms where noted.

Count on a quick response!
