Wis DOR: "Our Rules Changed. YOU Change, Too"

Well, this is going to be interesting.

Starting with 2011 estimated tax payments, Wisconsin tax law requires individual and fiduciary taxpayers to make these payments by electronic funds transfer (EFT) if their prior year estimated tax payments were $2,000 or more.

The Wisconsin Department of Revenue is mailing letters to individual taxpayers who paid their 2010 estimated tax payments by check or other paper means. They can make an EFT payment in one of three ways: (1) the Department's free Pay Online system; (2) ACH credit through a financial institution; or (3) a credit card through Official Payments Corporation (2.5% fee applies). --Schenck

One may also apply for 'hardship' exception.

Dear Governor Walker,

Any business--I repeat--ANY business will take money in any form offered, whether cash, check, certified check, cashier's check, or electronics.

No REAL business compels method of payment.

And don't give me the "efficiency" routine. Deal with it.
