My Tax Account 3 – File and Pay Sales and Use Tax

My Tax Account 3 – File and Pay Sales and Use Tax


Now let’s look at filing a sales and use tax
return, paying the tax due, and amending a return. Your account list is customized based on your
account access. To file a return, choose the sales and use
tax account and click ‘File Return.’ If you don’t see the period you want to file,
click ‘More…’ and select the correct period. If you don’t have sales or purchases for the
period, check the box for reporting zero on every line and click ‘Submit’. To report sales and purchases, follow this
three step process. All three steps are required, even if you’re
not reporting sales in steps 2 and 3. In step 1, enter your total sales, any subtractions,
and total purchases. The grey fields automatically calculate. Report county sales in step 2. If you don’t have sales or purchases to report
to a county with a tax, check the No County Tax box and click ‘ok’. The counties you reported tax to on previous
returns are already listed. To add a county, click in the open field under
the County column and choose it from the drop down. If you need to delete a county, click the
red X to the left of the county row. It is not necessary to delete the counties
which have no county tax to report for the period. Enter your total sales subject to county sales
tax and total purchases subject to county use tax for each county. Your total sales and purchases calculate automatically
as you enter amounts. Report stadium district sales and use tax
on Step 3. The total sales and purchases you entered
in Step 2 are automatically entered in Step 3 for counties with both a county tax and
a stadium district tax. If you don’t have sales or purchases to report
to a stadium district, check the No Stadium Tax box and click ‘ok’. After you submit and agree the information
you reported is correct, you’ll see a confirmation page. We recommend making a payment before you leave
the confirmation page to avoid processing delays. Click Make Payment and choose your preferred
payment option. We recommend paying by direct debit from a
checking or savings account. It’s the easiest, most secure way to pay. Your previous payment sources, if saved, will
be listed on the payment screen. Select the account you want to use or enter
a new payment source. You can save this bank information as your
default for future payments. Today’s date is entered as the payment date. You can change the payment date to any future
date, up to the due date for the return. Your amount due is automatically entered as
the payment amount. Confirm the amount and submit the payment. To amend a sales and use tax return you previously
filed, select the period and click ‘File or amend a return’ under ‘I Want To.’ Click ‘Amend,’ then select the step you’d
like to change and enter the corrected amounts – not just the net increase or decrease. Select Step 4 and enter an explanation for
the amendment, then click Submit. Continue to video 4 for filing and paying
withholding tax, or video 5 for filing and paying other tax types, printing returns,
and submitting appeal requests.
