How do I pay taxes electronically?
You can make an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) of money from one financial institution to another through either ACH Debit or ACH Credit.
ACH (Automated Clearing House) is a nationwide network used by the Federal Reserve to handle electronic payments. Electronic payments are a safe and efficient way to make tax payments.
There are two basic methods of paying by EFT – ACH Debit and ACH Credit.
When you use ACH Debit, you authorize how much and when the City can take money from your bank account to pay your taxes.
When you use ACH Credit, you tell your bank how much and when to send money to the City to pay your taxes.

ACH Debit is typically free. Neither the City of Sidney nor OBG charge additional fees for its use. Verify your fee structure with your own particular financial institution.
To sign up for ACH Debit, simply log on to the Ohio Business Gateway
Further, if you are able to transmit certain Required Addendum Information along with your electronic payment, you will satisfy your coupon filing requirement as well. Only the Annual Withholding Reconciliation (Form KW-3) and W-2's need to be mailed to the City; all monthly or quarterly withholding returns and payments are transmitted electronically.
The City of Sidney does not charge any fees for its use. Bank fees for ACH Credits vary, depending on your bank. Some banks offer software that allows you to initiate your own payments from your computer. Others process the ACH Credits for you.
To sign up to pay by ACH Credit, completing an ACH Credit Authorization Form, print, and then mail, email or fax the completed form to our office at:
City of Sidney
Once we receive your registration form, we will send to you the file layout specifications that you will need for preparation of your ACH Credit file transmissions.
