EFT Debit Payments

What You Need to Know

  • All users are required to complete Form 5473, City of Detroit Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Debit Application - Account Update, to have the appropriate tax code added to their account. If you have an existing user ID, include this information in PART 1: Account Information, Line 5 when completing the form.
  • If you are an existing customer, your current user ID and password can be used to access both the online payment process and the existing touch-tone phone system.
  • If you do not remember your user identification and password or need them reset you must call the Michigan Automated Tax Payment System (1-866-282-1633) and talk to a customer service representative.
  • Confirmation for online transactions can be received by e-mail if requested and you have provided a current/correct e-mail address. You may update an e-mail address by choosing the Manage my EFT Account selection on this page.
  • If you choose to make multiple EFT payments online, you must close that page between each payment.  
  • The profile information you enter after selecting the Manage my EFT Account option on this page is not maintained by the Michigan Department of Treasury. These changes are for EFT processes only. To notify the Michigan Department of Treasury of a change to your registered business name or address, you should complete Form 5439, Notice of Change.
  • EFT Debit transactions will be ineligible for EFT if the bank account used for the electronic debit is funded or otherwise associated with a foreign bank account to the extent that the payment transaction would qualify as an International ACH Transaction (IAT) under NACHA Rules.
