EFTPS is the website you use to make electronic payments for payroll taxes and income taxes to the IRS for businesses.
If you normally log-in to www.eftps.gov to make a payment, the following information affects you. If you schedule your payments using the telephone, you should not be affected.
Notice to Website users from EFTPS.gov:
- What is happening?
Fiscal Service is requiring Multifactor Authentication (MFA) for system access. The new authentication process supports Executive Order 14028, requiring all federal agency applications to implement MFA. This will provide an additional layer of security, protecting against unauthorized access threats. EFTPS is partnering with third-party credential service providers Login.gov and ID.me for MFA services.
- When is it happening?
Secure sign-in via Login.gov or ID.me is required as of October 19, 2023.
- How do I register?
Upon logging in to this site, you will be prompted to register and/or authenticate with either Login.gov or ID.me, prior to the normal process of inputting your EIN or SSN, PIN, and password.
- Where can I go for help?
For assistance with Login.gov please call the Login.gov help desk at (844) 875-6446.
For assistance with ID.me visit help.ID.me.
