Banking Information in myTTB

ba We know how sensitive banking information is to our industry members. myTTB has an interface that allows Entity Managers, or someone they designate, to securely store one or more bank accounts for their entity. The stored accounts can be used for myTTB services that require banking information to receive or make a payment. These accounts can be nicknamed, and the details are masked for other entity users to select and use in myTTB applications.

Note: To manage banking information for your entity, you must either be an Entity Manager or user that was granted banking access. Refer to Managing Banking Access for Users for details and instructions.
