Paper Check

Print a paper check in your office with tax refund proceeds for your clients to come pick up.

Tips and Tricks for Successful Check Printing: ü If you have not already, make sure to destroy all remaining check stock from previous years and only use the new check stock that we are sending you. ü Test which way paper goes into your printer by writing an arrow on it and printing a document to avoid putting the check stock in the wrong way. Make sure you load check stock into the printer before printing a check! ü If you do not see a check authorization, try logging out and logging back in. ü Make sure check sequence is correct and numbers match before printing. ü When you start a new packet of checks, update your check range in the system. ü Best practice is to print checks the night before funding. You will be sent a check print notification around 6PM the night before funding. Otherwise, wait an hour after printing before giving it to your client. ü Inform your clients that checks are only valid for 90 days. If it has been more than 90 days, give EPS a call at 484-546-2240.

Check Verification and Misprints:

  •  Do not verify the check. Checks can only be verified once and should be done by the institution handling the check.
  •  If a check has been verified and not cashed, a verification reset will be necessary.
  •  If a check is misprinted, do not destroy it. Write void across it and keep it for your records in case we need it to send a new check authorization or a check verification reset.
