ACH Transactions

Q: ACH information is required to eFile; how will this affect billing for other services that I use, such as SCCALES case searches?

When you eFile, your Nebraska.gov account is set up for direct debit in order to provide filing fees to the courts at the time the filing is accepted. These fees will not be included on your Nebraska.gov invoice. Your Nebraska.gov billing will also become direct debit from the same bank account. Your regular monthly transactions will be invoiced as usual to you via email and will then be debited from your bank account on the 10th of each month.

Q: Is my bank account information safe?

Yes, Nebraska Interactive, DBA Nebraska.gov is fully PCI/DDS compliant. All account information managed in the Nebraska.gov customer database is encrypted and held on our secure servers.
