Electronic Payment Requirement
House Bill 1086 requires that beginning July 1, 2012, funds disbursed from the State Treasury be sent electronically. Attached is the Electronic Payment Exemption Request electronic document for state agencies to seek an exemption for cause from this requirement. Only requests submitted via this document will be considered.
State agencies must complete and submit the Request electronically via email to Electronic.Payment.Exemption@treasurer.ok.gov. Each Request will be evaluated based on the information provided. Each agency will receive a confirmation of the receipt of their Request along with a notification of whether the exemption(s) sought has been approved. All exemptions will expire on June 30, 2013. Agencies should submit their Request(s) by April 30, 2012, to ensure its exemption(s) can be processed before July 1. You may also submit questions about the Request or how your agency can accept or send electronic payments to Electronic.Payment.Exemption@treasurer.ok.gov.
The State Treasurer recently awarded a contract for debit card services to increase electronic payment options available to state agencies. OTC began issuing individual tax refunds via debit cards in January 2012.
