Frequently Asked Questions - Electronic Filing & Payment


Does the Missouri Department of Revenue provide motor fuel tax EDI software?

No. However, the required software mapping is provided in the EDI Implementation Guide so the taxpayer has the option of building an EDI program in-house. If the taxpayer chooses not to build the program, they can seek the assistance of a software vendor.

Do I have to be enrolled in the motor fuel tax EFT program in order to participate in EDI?

Currently, the taxpayer is allowed to participate in the EDI program, without participating in the EFT program. With the ease of electronic filing and payment, it’s recommended that the taxpayer consider taking advantage of both programs.
