Fee for payments returned by banks – The law allows
the Tax Department to charge a $50 fee when a check,
money order, or electronic payment is returned by a bank for
nonpayment. However, if an electronic payment is returned
as a result of an error by the bank or the department, the
department won’t charge the fee. If your payment is returned,
we will send a separate bill for $50 for each return or other
tax document associated with the returned payment.
