You must first select the certified software vendor from whom you will obtain the software that will be used to file the electronic return. Once a vendor has been selected, you must contact the vendor and arrange to use the vendor's software. You will also, at this time, determine if you will file your return and payment at the same time using the vendor's software or if you will file the return only and make payment by another method. Payments can be made on the Department of Revenue's Web site using our online program. Select "Payment for e-Filed Annual Return" from the drop-down list on the second page.
