Upgraded application for installment payment agreements simplifies payment process
The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance announced enhancements to its Installment Payment Agreement (IPA) Web application. Taxpayers with an IPA can now take advantage of several new features.
“We continually strive to make doing business with us as easy and efficient as possible,” said Acting Commissioner Nonie Manion. “This upgraded application fits the bill because it ends the need for taxpayers to contact us by phone to discuss their payment agreement and is available around the clock.”
The enhanced IPA Web application, found here, now allows users to:
- set up automatic payments,
- change the monthly payment date to either the 5th or 15th of the month (only when automatic payments exist),
- update bank account information, and
- print a Certificate of Good Standing, which confirms an IPA is active.
Previously, taxpayers with an existing IPA had to contact the Tax Department by phone or by mail to make changes and update account information.
