Please attach a voided check to this form for the bank account you will use to set up the automated payroll tax deposits.  Please note:  It can take 2-4 weeks for the EFTPS system to become operational for a new account.  Until setup becomes operational, it will be necessary to make federal tax payments through authorized depositories (such as commercial banks).  Oregon tax payments can be paid by check until EFTPS setup is operational.
