When you use the e-File system for the first time, you will select the "First Time Web User" link. You will be required to create a Profile, User ID and Password. You will also be asked to create a Hint question which is an alternative way of entering the system if you forget your password. If you forget your Password and Hint answer, contact the Department's Division of Taxpayer Services at (603) 230-5920, M-F 8:00 A.M – 4:30 P.M. Eastern time.

If you previously used the e-File System, you will enter your User ID and Password.

If you forget your Password and Hint answer, contact the Department's Division of Taxpayer Services at (603) 230-5920, M-F 8:00 A.M.-4:30 P.M. Eastern Time

To calculate interest, use the following formula:

Amount of Tax Due X Daily Decimal Rate X Number of Days Late Per Tax Period

For Example:
On August 15, 2013, you file your 2010 Business Tax Return payment of $1000.00, which was due April 15, 2012. The interest due is calculated as follows:

Amount of Tax Due: X Daily Decimal Rate X Number of Days Late Per Tax Period = Interest Amount
$1000.00 X .000164 X 259 Days ( 4/16/2012 - 12/31/2012) = $42.48
$1000.00 X .000137 X 227 Days ( 1/3/2013 - 8/15/2013) = $31.10
Total Interest Amount = $73.58

The New Hampshire statutes governing interest rates were amended in 1995 [CH 268] to require that starting on January 1, 1998, and determined annually thereafter, the New Hampshire interest rates would be based upon the rates set by the federal government under Internal Revenue Code § 6621(a)(2). RSA 21-J :28, II provides that the "annual underpayment rate" is tied to the underpayment rate specified in the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as in effect on the September 1 immediately preceding such calendar year, plus 2 percentage points. RSA 21-J:28, III provides that the "overpayment rate" (the interest rate paid on refunds) is to be 3 percentage points less than the rate set in RSA 21-J:28, paragraph II.

Enter the amount of penalties that you are paying.

Failure To Pay: A penalty equal to 10% of any nonpayment of taxes shall be imposed if the taxpayer fails to pay the tax when due.

Failure To File: A taxpayer failing to file a complete return may be subject to a penalty equal to 5% of the tax due or $10, whichever is greater, for each month or part thereof that the return remains unfiled or incomplete. The total amount of this penalty shall not exceed 25% of the balance of tax due or $50, whichever is greater. Calculate this penalty starting from the original due date of the return until the date a complete return is being filed.

Underpayment Penalty: If the Business Enterprise Tax or the Business Profits Tax is more than $200, you may have been required to make estimated Business Enterprise Tax and/or Business Profits Tax payments during the year. To calculate your penalty for nonpayment or underpayment of estimates, or to determine if you qualify for an exemption from filing estimate payments, complete Form DP- 2210/2220 and mail it with your return. Use only one Form DP-2210/2220 to calculate the underpayment of estimated taxes for both the Business Enterprise and Business Profit Taxes.

Selecting the "BACK" button will take you to the "Select Tax & Payment Type" screen.

Selecting the "CONTINUE" button will take you to the "Business Tax Return Payment Summary" screen.

Business Tax Amended Payment

If you discover an error was made on your BET and/or BPT return(s) after they were filed, amended returns should be promptly filed by completing a corrected Form BT-SUMMARY and the appropriate BET and/or BPT returns. If the amended return indicates that additional tax, interest and/or penalties are due, you may make the payment(s) by using e-File New Hampshire. You cannot use e-File New Hampshire to receive a refund or credit on an amended return.

The Taxpayer name and a masked version of the Taxpayer ID will be displayed.

From a drop-down box select the calendar year for which you are making a payment. If you are a fiscal year filer or if you will be filing a short period return enter the beginning two-digit month, two-digit day and four digit year and the ending two-digit month, two-digit day and four digit year of the taxable period for which you are making a payment.

You can arrange these columns in any order and tell us that order. If you have additional columns of information for your own use, identify these as "filler fields". We will ignore these columns.

We will review your file for errors and accept all payments without errors. If a payment has errors, we will provide you with a list of failed records and an explanation of the problem. You can correct your file and resubmit the failed records.

Select File Type

You need to define the file you are attaching so our system can interpret what is in your file

If your file has a header at the top of the page, indicate the number of lines that should be skipped.

Determine if the file you are attaching is fixed length format or delimited format. If you use a spreadsheet application, you can save your file with a delimited file-type.

The file-type of your text file will determine what you need to enter as the field separator. For example: If you save your file as comma-delimited, the field separator is a comma.

If a field in your file contains the same character defined as a field separator, you can indicate that the information is one field by using a string qualifier. Use the string qualifier at the beginning and the end of the field.
