PrompTax Metropolitan Commuter Transportation Mobility Tax ACH Credit Format

 ACH credit CCD+ format record format specifications and layout

For ACH Credit Metropolitan Commuter Transportation Mobility Tax (MCTMT) 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 MCTMT information.

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