Getting Started

Overview

If you have filed with New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration after 1998, you can pay your Business Enterprise Tax (BET), Business Profit Tax (BPT), and Interest and Dividends Tax (I&D), estimate, extension, return and/or amended return payments.

You may now also pay Business Enterprise Tax (BET), Business Profit Tax (BPT) tax notices payments, file and pay Interest & Dividends Tax return, tax notices payments, Meals & Rentals Tax (M&R) estimate, tax notices payments and file and pay your returns, amended returns and final returns. New Hampshire Counties may now file Real Estate Transfer Tax monthly payments.

New for tax periods beginning on or after 01/01/2004, I&D filers may request a refund and/or credit on their return overpayments. Once the Department of Revenue has validated your overpayment claim, your refund will be mailed to you by the Department of Treasury within 3 months from the date filed or authorized extension date, whichever is later. Pursuant to RSA 21-J:28-a, any refund and credit requests may be applied as an offset to any liability with respect to any tax administered by the Department of Revenue.

When you use this system for the first time, enter your nine digits SSN, FEIN, PTIN or New Hampshire DIN for Business Enterprise Tax (BET), Business Profit Tax (BPT), Interest & Dividends Tax (I&D) and Real Estate Transfer Tax (RE Tax). This number will be referred to as your New Hampshire Identification Number. You will then create your own PIN. Your PIN must be four digits and cannot contain any spaces. You will also be asked to enter a PIN HINT question as an alternative to entering the system if you forget your PIN. If you forget your PIN, and the Hint does not help you remember it, contact the Department at (603) 230-5000, M-F 8:00am-4:30pm Eastern Time.

For Meals & Rentals Tax (M&R) operators you will need to enter your six-digit license number. This number will be referred to as your New Hampshire Meals and Rentals Tax license number.

To make an electronic payment, you will need the following information:

1. Tax type (BET/BPT & I&D, M&R and Real Estate Transfer)
2. Payment type (Estimates, Extensions, Return payments, Amended return and tax notice payments)
3. Taxable period
4. Total payment
5. Bank account type (checking or savings)
6. Bank routing number
7. Bank account number

When you are finished making a payment, you will receive a confirmation number with a date and time stamp. If you exit before getting a confirmation number, your information will not be saved or processed. Keep the confirmation number, date and time stamp for your records.

When using this system, use the navigational buttons on each screen instead of your browser buttons. Using the Back or Forward buttons on your browser may interfere with making a payment.

The Department has a Demo of our e-file program available to be used if you would like to run through the program before making an actual payment. Any information entered on the demo screen will not be retained for future use.
