Electronic Payment Options for Employers

Automated Clearing House (ACH) Debit

EFT ACH debit allows you to pay your Unemployment Insurance (UI) taxes online on the Internet by instructing the State to electronically debit your bank account for a specific payment amount on a day of your choosing. There is no cost to the taxpayer for this type of payment transaction.

In order to make EFT debit payments you must have access online to your Unemployment Insurance (UI) account. If you already are filing your Unemployment Insurance tax report online you already have access to your UI Account and can make EFT debit payments immediately.

If you do not have online access to your UI account and want to make EFT debit payments please contact Unemployment Insurance at (608) 261-6700, Monday through Friday, 8:00AM - 4:15 PM, or email us at taxnet@dwd.wisconsin.gov. Request that we mail you the SUITES Portal Access Letter. The letter will come with instructions and an access code telling you how to set up access online to your UI account.

Setting up an EFT account

Please make sure to have your bank routing and account number handy to complete the EFT account set up process. Once you complete the EFT account set up process, you can immediately begin to make payments electronically.

You can access the EFT payment site after you login in to your UI account directly from your Employer Home page or from the Tax and Wage Filing Confirmation page after you complete the filing of your UI tax report online using the File Tax and Wage Reports System.

Advantages of EFT payments

Blocking Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) payments from coming out of your bank account.

If you want to make Unemployment Insurance (UI) EFT debit payments and you have your financial institution place an EFT debit filter block on your bank account to prevent unauthorized EFT debit payments from being deducted from your bank account you need to make sure that your financial institution will allow the UI payment you make to be deducted from your bank account. Your financial institution may ask you for UI’s Company Identification number and Company Name. The Company Identification number is 1369006449 and the Company Name is Wisconsin UI Tax. Please provide this information to your financial institution if you have debit filter block on your bank account and wish to make UI payments electronically.
