Multi-factor Authentication Now Mandatory for EFTPS
What has Changed:
Effective October 19th, 2023, the Electronic Federal Tax Payment System (EFTPS) has instituted multi-factor authentication into their login system with a goal of increased account security. Users must register with one of two secure sign-in applications, LOGIN.gov or ID.me to gain continued access their business or individual EFTPS accounts.
How to Register:
Upon logging in to the EFTPS website, users will be redirected to a new webpage with registration options for both sign-in services. Users may also register directly at the Login.gov or ID.me websites.

Tax payments are due regardless of the EFTPS website’s availability. You can always make a tax payment by calling the EFTPS voice response system at 1.800.555.3453 and following the prompts.
