How are payments applied?

(1) A payment received with a tax report will be applied to the quarter for which the report is filed. A payment exceeding the legal fees, penalties, interests and taxes due for that quarter will be applied to any other debt as provided in subsection (2).

It will first be applied to the current quarter if a balance is owed for that quarter, then to the previous quarter if a balance is owed for that quarter, then beginning with the oldest quarter in which a balance is owed:
(a) Costs of audit and collection;
(b) Penalties for willful misrepresentation of payroll;
(c) Lien fees;
(d) Warrant fees, surcharges, and fees for nonsufficient funds (NSF) on checks;
(e) Penalties for knowingly failing to register with the department;
