e-File Help - Interest & Dividends Help

| e-File Help | e-File Website |

Overview

If you have filed with the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration before using the e-File system, you can file your Interest and Dividends Tax (I&D) return(s) (original, amended, and final) and make payment of I&D Tax estimates, extensions, returns, amended returns and tax notice payments.

For tax periods beginning on or after 1/1/2004, I&D filers may request a refund and/or credit on their return overpayments. Once the Department 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.

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 have not changed from using your NH Tax ID to a User ID, you will need to do so by selecting the "Update your NH Tax ID to your User ID". 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.

You can make an online payment using e-Check or Credit Card. To make an online payment, you will need the following information:

  • Tax type (I&D)
  • Payment type (Estimate, Extension, Return, Amended return and tax notice payments)
  • Taxable period
  • Total payment
  • For payment by e-Check:
    • Bank account type (checking or savings)
    • Bank routing number
    • Bank account number
  • For payment by Credit Card:
    • Cardholder name
    • Email address
    • Billing zip code
    • Telephone number
    • Credit card Number
    • Credit card expiration date

Please note the following with respect to credit card payments:

  • A service fee in the amount of 2.49% of your tax payment will be charged to your credit card in addition to your tax payment;
  • There is a $50,000 limit on the credit card payments. If your payment is greater than $50,000 please pay using a e-Check;
  • Your payment will be processed on the date submitted;
  • Credit card payments cannot be canceled once submitted; and
  • Credit card payments cannot be warehoused.
  • Accepted credit cards are Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.

When you are finished making a payment either through e-Check or Credit Card, you will receive a confirmation number and/or an order number with a date and time stamp. If you exit before getting a confirmation number and/or order number, your information will not be saved or processed.

There is a Power of Attorney (POA) check box on the return confirmation page. By checking this box and providing the electronic signature authorization, you authorize the Department to discuss the return with the preparer indicated. This is a limited POA. Preparers may be required to submit a Form DP-2848 pdf filefor other tax matters and/or years.

When using the e-File 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 e-Check payment. Any information entered on the demo screen will not be retained for future use. The "Demo" is not available for payment by credit card.

To calculate interest, use the following formula:

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

On August 15, 2013, you file your 2010 I&D 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 260 Days (4/16/2012 - 12/31/2012) = $42.64
$1000.00 X .000137 X 227 Days (1/1/2013 - 8/15/2013) = $31.10
  Total Interest Amount = $73.74

 

The New Hampshire statutes governing interest rates were amended in 1995 (Chapter 268, Laws of 1995). Starting on January 1, 1998, and determined annually thereafter, the New Hampshire interest rates are 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 or underpayment of taxes shall be imposed if the taxpayer fails to pay the tax when due. If the failure to pay is due to fraud, the penalty shall be 50% of the amount of the nonpayment or underpayment.
  • Failure to File: A taxpayer failing to timely file a complete return may be subject to a penalty equal to 5% of the tax due 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. Calculate this penalty starting from the original due date of the return until the date a complete return is being filed.
  • Underpayment Penalty: As of January 1, 2004 if your tax is $500 or more, you are required to make estimated tax payments during the tax year, unless you meet an exception. Prior to January 1, 2004, you are required to make estimated payments if your tax is $200 or more. To calculate your penalty for nonpayment or underpayment of estimates, or to determine if you qualify for an exception from filing estimate payments, complete Form DP-2210/2220. Form DP-2210/2220 may be obtained at our website or by calling the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration Forms Line at (603) 230-5001.
    Taxpayers are advised of New Hampshire Statute RSA 21-J:33-a. If there is a substantial understatement of tax imposed under RSA 77 for any taxable period, there shall be added to the tax an amount equal to 25 percent of the amount of any underpayment attributable to such understatement. There is a substantial understatement of tax for any taxable period if the amount of the understatement for the taxable period exceeds the greater of 10 percent of the tax required to be shown on the return for the taxable period or $5,000.

If your return requires adequate disclosure, you cannot use e-File, please file a paper return.

Interest & Dividends Tax Amended Return Payment

If you discover an error was made on your I&D return after it was filed, an amended return should be promptly filed by completing a corrected I&D Tax Return. 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 can use e-File to receive a refund or credit on an amended return for tax periods beginning on or after 1/1/2004.

The name and User ID associated with this application will be displayed.

From a drop-down box select the calendar year for which you are making a payment. Amended returns must meet Statute of Limitations rules as defined in RSA 21-J:29, which can be found on our website under "Laws and Rules." 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. Then enter the ending two- digit month, two-digit day and four-digit year of the taxable period for which you are making a payment. (Example 10/01/2012 - 09/30/2013) These dates will override the calendar year.

To calculate interest, use the following formula:
Amount of Tax Due X Daily Decimal Rate X Number of Days Late Per Period

For Example:

On August 15, 2013, you file your 2010 Interest & Dividends Tax Return payment of $1000.00, which was due April 15, 2012. The interest due is calculated is in this table:

Amount of Tax Due: X Daily Decimal Rate X Number of Days Late Per Tax Period = Interest Amount
$1000.00 X .000164 X 260 Days (4/16/2012 - 12/31/2012) = $42.64
$1000.00 X .000137 X 227 Days (1/1/2013 - 8/15/20133 = $31.10
  Total Interest Amount = $73.74

 

The New Hampshire statutes governing interest rates were amended in 1995 (Chapter 268, Laws of 1995) 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 or underpayment of taxes shall be imposed if the taxpayer fails to pay the tax when due. If the failure to pay is due to fraud, the penalty shall be 50% of the amount of the nonpayment or underpayment.

  • Failure to File: A taxpayer failing to timely file a complete return may be subject to a penalty equal to 5% of the tax due 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. Calculate this penalty starting from the original due date of the return until the date a complete return is being filed.
  • Underpayment Penalty: As of January 1, 2004 if your tax is $500 or more, you are required to make estimated tax payments during the tax year, unless you meet an exception. Prior to January 1, 2004, you are required to make estimated payments if your tax is $200 or more. To calculate your penalty for nonpayment or underpayment of estimates, or to determine if you qualify for an exception from filing estimate payments, complete Form DP-2210/2220. Form DP-2210/2220 may be obtained at our website or by calling the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration Forms Line at (603) 230-5001.

Taxpayers are advised of New Hampshire Statute RSA 21-J:33-a. If there is a substantial understatement of tax imposed under RSA 77 for any taxable period, there shall be added to the tax an amount equal to 25 percent of the amount of any underpayment attributable to such understatement. There is a substantial understatement of tax for any taxable period if the amount of the understatement for the taxable period exceeds the greater of 10 percent of the tax required to be shown on the return for the taxable period or $5,000.

File a Return

Interest & Dividends Tax Return

This page will allow the taxpayer to file their I&D Tax Return. For tax periods beginning prior to 1/1/2004 only returns with payment in full or zero balance due returns can be accepted. For tax periods beginning on or after 1/1/2004 taxpayers may file overpayments resulting in a refund and/or credit to the next year. The taxpayer name and NH ID Number associated with this application will be displayed.

Note: If you have previously saved a return, select "Complete a Saved Return" from the Main Menu to display. A saved return will start at Step 1. You must tab forward through the return to reach the section where you left off.

Step 1:

The calendar year will default to the current year based on the system date. 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. Then enter the ending two-digit month, two-digit day and four-digit year of the taxable period for which you are making a payment (Example 10/01/2012 - 09/30/2013). These dates will override the calendar year. Individuals cannot file short year returns. If the taxpayer dies during the taxable period, the return dates would encompass the entire year, however the income earned would be reported for only that portion of the year prior to the date of death. If you established or abandoned residency during the year, see instructions in Step 4.

New Address: Select if you need to change your address. A New Address screen will pop up for you to fill in. Selecting "BACK" will return you to the Interest and Dividends Tax Return screen without saving any information. Selecting "SUBMIT NEW ADDRESS" will save your new address information and close this window. You will then return to the I&D Tax Return screen.

Step 2: Entity Type (only one entity type may be selected)

If Joint Return is selected, a Spouse Information window will pop up. Selecting "BACK" will return you to the Interest and Dividends Tax Return without saving any information. Once spouse name and social security number are filled in, select "SUBMIT SPOUSE INFORMATION" to save the information and close this window. You will then return to the Interest and Dividends Tax Return screen.

If Partnership return is selected, enter the percentage of ownership by New Hampshire residents.

If Fiduciary return is selected, enter the percentage of New Hampshire beneficiaries.

Special Return Type: Select the appropriate box and enter the date of the event. Also enter the social security number if a final return for a deceased individual.

Amended Return Type: Select this box if an amended return. Do not file IRS adjustments using the e-File system.

Selecting "BACK" will return you to the "Interest and Dividends Main Menu" screen.

Selecting "CONTINUE" will bring you to Step 3 of the "Interest and Dividends Tax Return."

Selecting "SAVE AND EXIT" will save this return and exit the application. Note that if a Saved Return is on file, you must complete or delete that return before starting a new return.

Step 3:

Line 1(a) Enter All Interest Income. For individual and joint filers the amount to be reported is from Line 8(a) of IRS Form 1040 or 1040A. For partnerships and fiduciary filers, the amount to be reported is the total of all interest income reported on your federal return. Note: All interest income, which is not taxable to NH, will be deducted on Line 4.

Line 1(b) Enter ALL ordinary Dividend Income. For individual and joint filers the amount to be reported is from Line 9(a) of IRS Form 1040 or 1040A. NOTE: All dividend income, which is not taxable to NH, will be deducted on Line 4.

Line 1(c) Enter ALL federally tax-exempt interest income. For individual and joint filers the amount to be reported is from Line 8(b) of IRS Form 1040 or 1040A unless specifically exempt by New Hampshire law, all federally tax-exempt income is taxable to New Hampshire. Note: All federal tax-exempt interest income, which is not taxable to NH, will be deducted on Line 4.

Line 1(d) Select "CALCULATE" for the system to add Lines 1(a) through 1(c) and display the total for you.

Line 2 Distributions Subject to the NH Interest and Dividends Tax - List the actual cash or property distributions you received or constructively received from S Corporations, partnerships with transferable shares, trusts or estates with transferable shares, or the return of capital from qualified investment capital companies when the investment is returned within three years of the original deduction. These distributions are subject to tax in NH as a "dividend". (Transferable means that you can freely transfer your shares without causing dissolution of the organization or without prior approval of the other members.) All publicly traded partnerships fall into this category. Note: All non-taxable income will be deducted on Line 4.

In Column I, enter the entity code number from the screen, which represents the type of entity of the payer. Entity codes are 2=S-Corporations; 3=Partnerships; 4=Trusts or Estates; 5=Other.

In Column II, enter the name of the payer.

In Column III, enter the payer's social security number or federal employer identification number, if known.

In Column IV, enter the total cash amount or property distribution received or constructively received. This amount may not correspond to any line on your Federal Form 1040 or your Federal Schedule K-1 tax return. Note: This is not a tax on pass-through portfolio income, gains or losses from a Federal Schedule K-1; therefore, do not include any pass-through gains or losses from Federal Schedule K-1.

Line 3 Select "CALCULATE" for the system to add Lines 1(d) plus Line 2 and display the total for you.

Line 4 Interest and Dividends Income not Taxable to NH - Items in this category should only be deducted if they were previously included in Lines 1(a), 1(b), 1(c) or 2.

In Column I, enter the reason code number that corresponds to the reason the income is not subject to the Interest & Dividends Tax. Select button "SELECT HERE FOR REASON CODES" for a list of code numbers.

Line 4(c) The application will calculate the sum of 4(a) and 4(b) and display.

Line 4(d) Part-year Resident Non-taxable Pro-rata Share: A part-year resident is a resident who established or abandoned residency during the year. Part-year residents may prorate interest and dividend income. Individuals filing as part year residents may deduct the amount of taxable income earned while not a resident of New Hampshire. To determine the annual taxable income for the pro-rata share calculation, enter the number of days you were a non-resident, then select "CALCULATE." The system will calculate the part-year pro-rata share by subtracting Line 4(c) sub-total of non-taxable income by Line 3 sub-total of all income to get taxable income. The number of Non-NH resident days is divided by 365 days in the year and the result is multiplied by the taxable income.

Line 5 Gross Taxable Income - The application will calculate Line 3, "Subtotal of Line 1 plus Line 2" minus Line 4 and display.

Line 6 The income exemption is based on information entered in Step 2: Entity Type of your return.

Line 7 Adjusted Taxable Income - The application will calculate Line 5 minus Line 6.

Line 8 Select the exemptions that apply. Exemptions for spouse can only be selected if Joint Return was selected on Page 1 of the return.

Line 10 The application will calculate the New Hampshire Interest and Dividends Tax and display the result.

Line 11 Enter payments previously made from an (a) application for extension (b) estimated tax and/or (c) credit carryover from prior year. If an amended return, enter amount paid with original return on line (d). The application will calculate the sum of Lines 11(a) through (d) and display the result.

Line 12 The application will calculate the Balance of Tax Due (Line 10 minus Line 11) and display the result. If the result is negative, you have an overpayment. For tax periods beginning on or after 1/1/2004, taxpayers may advance to line 17 to specify the application of the overpayment.

Line 13 Additions to Tax - Enter applicable additions to tax. Interest is calculated on the balance of tax due from the original due date to the date paid at the applicable rate listed below.

For Example:

On August 15, 2013, you file your 2010 Interest & Dividends Tax Return payment of $1000.00 which was due April 15, 2012. The interest due calculated is in this table:

Amount of Tax Due: X Daily Decimal Rate X Number of Days Late Per Tax Period = Interest Amount
$1000.00 X .000164 X 260 Days (4/16/2012 - 12/31/2012) = $42.64
$1000.00 X .000137 X 227 Days (1/1/2013 - 8/15/20133 = $31.10
  Total Interest Amount = $73.74

 

The New Hampshire statutes governing interest rates were amended in 1995 (Chapter 268, Laws of 1995) 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 timely 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 your tax is more than $500, you were required to make estimated tax payments during the tax year. To calculate your penalty for nonpayment or underpayment of estimated tax or to determine if you qualify for an exception from making estimated payments, complete Form DP-2210/2220. The Form DP-2210/2220 (Link to http://www.revenue.nh.gov/forms/interest-dividends.htm) can be accessed at the Department’s website or by calling the Forms Line at (603) 230-5001.

Taxpayers are advised of New Hampshire Statute RSA 21-J:33-a. If there is a substantial understatement of tax imposed under RSA 77 for any taxable period, there shall be added to the tax an amount equal to 25 percent of the amount of any underpayment attributable to such understatement. There is a substantial understatement of tax for any taxable period if the amount of the understatement for the taxable period exceeds the greater of 10 percent of the tax required to be shown on the return for the taxable period or $5,000.

If your return requires adequate disclosure, you cannot use e-File, please file a paper return.

Step 5: Figure Your Net Balance Due or Overpayment

Line 14 (a) The application will add Line 12 "Balance of Tax Due" and Line 13 "Additions to Tax" and display the Subtotal Amount Due.

(b) Enter the amount you have previously paid electronically.

Line 15 The application will calculate the Net Balance Due (Line 14(a) minus Line 14(b)).

If the net balance due is less than $1.00, do not pay but still file the return. If the Net Balance Due is zero, advance to line 16 to determine if you have overpaid.

For tax periods beginning on or after 1/1/2004, if you have overpaid, advance to line 18 to specify the application of the overpayment. For tax periods beginning prior to 1/1/2004, taxpayers may e-file zero returns and returns with payments only.

Payments will be applied according to NH Code of Administrative Rules, Rev 2903.05, Partial Payments.

Claims for overpayments are subject to the provisions of RSA21-J:28-a.

Line 16 The application will calculate the overpayment, when applicable, and display the result. For tax periods beginning on or after 1/1/2004, you must select how you would like this overpayment applied on line 17 (a) and (b). The total of lines 17(a) and 17(b) must equal line 16.

Line 17(a) The taxpayer has the option of applying all or any portion of the overpayment as a credit to the next tax period. Enter the amount of overpayment to be applied as a credit.

Line 17(b) The taxpayer must enter the amount of refund requested. The Department of Treasury will mail a check to the taxpayer in approximately 90 days from validation by the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration. Interest will be computed in accordance with RSA 21-J:28.

Selecting "BACK" will return you to Step 3 of the "Interest and Dividends Tax Return."

Selecting "CONTINUE" will bring you to the "Payment Authorization" screen. If you have an overpayment you will advance to the Interest & Dividends Return Summary screen.

Selecting "SAVE AND EXIT" will save this return and exit the application. Note that if a Saved Return is on file, you must complete or delete that return before starting a new return.

Make Payments for Clients: Attach a File -Web Import (WI)

The following is NOT available for payment with a credit card.

To make payments with the WI application, you will need to prepare a text file with your information. Each column of your file will represent a line item you need to report. 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 a 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.

Select the "NEXT" button to describe your file layout. Select the "RESET" button to reset the fields on this form.

Select the "EXIT" button to return to the "Main Menu."

Describe File Layout

The first time you use the WI, you need to tell us what fields are in your file and the order of these fields. The system will retain this information for future filings. If you add fields or change the field order of your file, you will need to change the file layout before sending your next file.

Indicate the order of the fields as they appear in your file by entering the order number in the box or by using the arrows to position the lines in the correct order. If you enter a number in the box, the line will move to the placement indicated when you select "REFRESH."

If your file has fields we do not need, you can leave them in your file and indicate it is a filler field. We will not process filler fields.

Your file should contain one record for each payment. The following fields are required:

  • Taxpayer ID Alpha-numeric, SSN & FEIN must be nine-digits long, NHDIN must begin with 'NL' and be followed by 7 digits

General

This option allows you to authorize users to make payments if your business structure requires you to have multiple users.

If you register multiple users, the main user and the sub-users will not have the option of logging in with a hint question if they forget their password.

Registering Multiple Users

Multiple User Contact Information

Before you set up additional users, you will be required, as your business's Multi-User Administrator, to enter your name, phone number and e-mail address on the "Multiple User Contact Information" screen. We will use this information to contact you if we have questions about your payment transactions. You are responsible for maintaining the Password and user authorizations that you set up. If one of the users that you have set up forgets his or her Password, that person will need to contact you to access the system.
