Corporation tax ACH credit CCD+ format

Record format specifications and layout

For ACH Credit Corporation Tax payments, the Tax Department uses the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA) Cash Concentration and Disbursement Plus One Addenda Record (CCD+) format.

There are two sections you must complete for the ACH Credit transaction:

  1. Record 6 (ACH Credit payment)—includes the payment information, including to whom, how much, and from whom.
  2. Record 7 (CCD+ Special Addenda Record)—includes required CT return information.

The specifications and layouts, including examples, for Record 6 and Record 7 are detailed on the following pages. All ACH Credit CT payments must adhere to these specifications so that they can be properly identified and correctly applied by the department.

Note: All fields are mandatory unless otherwise noted.
