For the first time, truck taxpayers will now be able to pay annual
excise taxes online via debit or credit card

ACI
Worldwide
(NASDAQ:ACIW), a leading global provider of real-time electronic
payment and banking solutions
, today announced that SPAN
Enterprises, a cloud-based software company with more than a dozen web
and mobile applications for tax filing, is using ACI's Official
Payments IRS tax payment system
to improve its customer experience.
This will be the first year that truckers, fleet managers and CPAs who
file truck taxes with ExpressTruckTax – SPAN Enterprises' e-filing
solution for the trucking industry – can pay their tax obligation online
via credit or debit card.

Rock Hill, South Carolina-based ExpressTruckTax is the market leader in
e-filing for Form 2290 or the Heavy Vehicle Use Tax (HVUT), an annual
excise tax levied on all heavy vehicles weighing 55,000 pounds or more
that operate on public highways. Looking to enhance its customers'
payment experience, ExpressTruckTax turned to ACI's Official Payments
for the convenience it offers taxpayers. HVUT payers now have the
flexibility to pay their taxes online through OfficialPayments.com,
simplifying the tax filing and payment process overall.

"With this additional tax payment service, ExpressTruckTax is moving
leaps and bounds beyond what anyone else in the industry is offering.
All of our clients will be able to utilize this key benefit whether they
are a large fleet, or an owner-operator," said Agie Sundaram, co-founder
& CEO, SPAN Enterprises. "Our partnership with ACI ensures we are
keeping up with the needs of our clients and the IRS by not only making
it easier for taxpayers to file online, but offering the convenience of
paying online with a debit or credit card as well. Our team is very
excited to be working with ACI on this initiative."

"The transportation industry is central to our economy and anything we
can do to help create a frictionless tax payment experience is important
so owners can spend more time focusing on the business itself," said
Andrew Sajeski, leader, biller solutions, ACI Worldwide. "ACI's Official
Payments is quick, easy and secure for taxpayers looking to e-file their
taxes and complete their payments online all at once."

Bill payments that can be made through ACI's Official Payments website
include the IRS, 23 state governments, the District of Columbia, more
than 3,000 local municipalities and counties across all 50 states, 350
colleges and universities, and 450 utility companies. Consumers can pay
federal, state and local property taxes and other bills such as
utilities and college tuition with credit cards, debit cards, electronic
checks and alternative payment methods via mobile, online (www.OfficialPayments.com),
telephone, point of sale and other channels.
