Sales Tax Reports
You have likely been filing personal income taxes all your life. You may do it yourself or you may get tax accounting help. Filing personal income taxes can be complicated and filing sales tax returns can be even more complex.
First, you must ensure that you have collected taxes correctly from your customers. In-state customers pay whatever the tax rate is in your state, but out-of-state customers pay a use tax, which is equal to the tax rate in their jurisdiction. It’s up to you, as a merchant, to determine what the rate is in your customer’s area and charge them correctly.
It would be challenging enough if this duty was a matter of having a list of states and their tax rates, but some counties, cities, towns and townships have their own tax rates on top of the state tax that you must also collect and remit. The time it would take you to gather all this information — and stay up to date on it — can be overwhelming. At SalesTaxSolutions.US, we can help you by designing a sales tax and use system just for you.

Avoid overpaying sales tax
Sales Tax Automation
The system we design for you can automatically generate sales tax reports and use reports so you can pay taxes in all the jurisdictions in which you owe, on time.
We can also help with sales tax registration. Many states require businesses to register in order to pay taxes in their state, and every state has a different process. If you neglect to file your sales tax registration, you may not get credit for the taxes you pay in that state. Work with SalesTaxSolutions.US to ensure your sales tax registrations are filed correctly and on time.
When to File Sales Tax Returns
Filing sales tax returns must be done on a quarterly basis in most states. Each state may also have a deadline for filing ecommerce sale and use taxes, and if you miss this deadline, you may have to pay a fine.
Considering the potential enormity of this task for a successful ecommerce business can be daunting. You may be required to fill out more than 50 sales tax returns every quarter, as well as remit the correct amount of taxes.
It’s smarter for a successful business to outsource this task to a sales tax compliance company such as SalesTaxSolutions.US. We assist clients with creating ecommerce sales tax reports and filing sales tax returns. This frees your business up to concentrate on what’s important — operating, managing and growing your business. You lose money when you have to take time away from work to file sales tax returns.
Moreover, at SalesTaxSolutions.US, we are experts in filing sales tax returns. If you are not a tax accountant, you may make mistakes when you’re filing sales tax returns and be assessed with fees or penalties if the mistake is discovered.

Obtain Sales Data
Sign and File
Each jurisdiction has a website with a portal that taxpayers can access to file their returns online and view account details. We’ll get these accounts setup for you if you don’t already have active accounts.
If you already have active eFile account, then we will request access to them so we may file and pay returns on your behalf. Our professional sales tax team will be with you every step of the way.
Obtain Sales Data
We need access to sales data in order to prepare and file sales tax returns. We can access this in a variety of ways – whichever is most convenient and affordable to you. We have experience with many different platforms so we can create a custom solution that fits your business needs.
Once access to sales data is setup then the sales tax process is pretty much streamlined. We will gather the data monthly and file returns on your behalf. All you need to do is watch for our emails with the monthly reports that detail the amount of sales tax expected to be paid out that month.
We prepare your return for you so this step is all us. We’ll prepare your tax return and any necessary additional forms using the information you provided to us. We may reach out to you for additional information if anything is missing.
Sign and File!
Once your return is complete we will file the return and remit the payment due. Towards the end of each month we will email a filing confirmation report that will detail the exact amounts paid to each state/locality. We also include copies of all of the returns filed for you records.

We can help you figure it out. Send us a message or give us a call to get started.
I received a delinquency notice from a state. What should I do?

What if I don't want to eFile my returns?
