  • For ALDOR state tax payments and state-administered local payments: ADORCCD000

Payments rejected due to debit block issues may result in failure to timely pay penalties and interest.

Failure to resolve ongoing debit block issues may result in the jurisdiction not acknowledging receipt of the associated electronically filed tax return, producing delinquency notices and failure to timely file penalties.

Tax Preparers

Third party/bulk filing is a method for third-party tax preparers to submit multiple clients’ returns in a single file upload or individually access a client’s account to file for them. To receive third party/bulk filing status, you must submit the application to become a bulk filer. Once approved, you will receive an agent account that you can use to sign on to the MAT system. With an agent account, and your client’s approval, you will be able to file returns and submit payments on your client’s behalf using a single logon.
