OrrTax Offers Credit Option
OrrTax Software, the Washington state-based provider of tax services, including the popular IntelliTax service, is one of a handful of companies certified by the IRS to process credit card transactions for taxpayers.
Anticipating the approval for some time, the ability to process payments already is included in current versions of the software.
Orrtax is partnering with Official Payments Corporation (OPC, formerly US Audiotex), to process transactions on American Express, MasterCard and Discover. OPC has chosen the District of Columbia, Connecticut, California, New Jersey, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Illinois as its applicable states during the pilot service.
VISA is not part of the credit cards accepted because the company chose not to participate.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
