Common Errors Made on Tax Payments

 

Error: Check is not signed.
Result: The check is returned to the maker and the tax bill remains unpaid.

Error: Numeric and written amount on check do not match.
Result: Bank will not process check. The check is returned to the maker and the tax bill remains unpaid.

Error: The amount paid included a penalty that was not due at the time of payment.
Result: Bank will not process check. The check is returned to the maker and the tax bill remains unpaid.

Error: The amount paid does not include the penalty due.
Result: The amount due depends on the date the payment is made.
If payment is made in person at the bank, the date the payment is received at the Bank Teller’s window is considered the date of payment. If a tax payment is mailed, the date of the official postmark on the envelope is considered the date of payment. If the amount submitted is not the amount due on the date of payment, which would include any penalties due on that date, the check is returned to the maker with a notification of underpayment and the tax bill remains unpaid.
