Department of Taxation
Notice of Adoption of Temporary Administrative Rules

Pursuant to Section 231-10.7, Hawaii Revised Statutes (HRS), the Director of Taxation of the State of Hawaii has adopted Temporary Rules Relating to Electronic Funds Transfer which have been approved by the Governor and which have the same force and effect as any other administrative rule.

The temporary rules amend the current electronic funds transfer (EFT) rules to require a participant in the EFT program to make all payments, including those based on an annual return, for a given tax type electronically. The current rules only require periodic payments to be made electronically.

Temporary rules become effective seven days after statewide public notice is provided by publication and are effective for 18 months thereafter. The temporary rules are available online at tax.hawaii.gov or ltgov.hawaii.gov. A copy of the temporary rules may also be obtained between the hours of 7:45 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding State holidays, at the Director’s Office located at the Department of Taxation, Room 221, Princess Ruth Keelikolani Building, 830 Punchbowl Street, Honolulu, Hawaii and at the District Tax Offices located at 3060 Eiwa Street, Lihue, Kauai; 54 High Street, Wailuku, Maui; and 75 Aupuni Street, Hilo, Hawaii.
