Electronic Vendor Payments
The Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) prefers to pay vendors electronically via electronic funds transfer (EFT). Vendors must provide their taxpayer identification number and electronic payment information when doing business with Fiscal Service. When this information is not provided, vendor invoices will be returned.
Vendor payment remittance information is available via the Internet using the Internet Payment Platform (IPP formerly PAID). Vendor payments are made in accordance with the Prompt Payment Act. Fiscal Service issues 1099 tax forms in January of each year to vendors who have been paid for services during the previous calendar year, regardless of the type of organization.
Questions concerning Fiscal Service's payment practice can be answered by calling 304-480-7119.
