Employers are encouraged to remit payments electronically. Electronic funds transfer (EFT) is easy, secure, and efficient. There are several options that are no cost to the employer. Employers with 25 or more employees at any time, and have received 4 or more income withholding orders must remit payments electronically. Make EFT Payments using North Dakota Online Services.
