Can TaxJar file overdue returns?
At this time, we are optimized to AutoFile returns that are currently due, and we won't automatically go back and AutoFile returns from previous filing periods.
If you have overdue returns in states where AutoFile is offered, TaxJar can file returns from previous filing periods in most states,* upon request, for $50 per return, after you have successfully enrolled in AutoFile for that state. (*We are not able to AutoFile returns from previous filing periods in Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Texas and Washington. We also cannot AutoFile past due Michigan Annual Reconciliations.)
- The good news is, you can go back and file returns from a previous filing period yourself using your TaxJar Reports for those states.
If you have enrolled in AutoFile for the state where you have unfiled returns for past filing periods and you'd like us to file a past due return, please send your request to email@example.com, along with the state name and the filing periods you would like TaxJar to file.
- Once your request is received and confirmed, your past due returns will be processed within 6-8 weeks.
Although our filing fee for overdue/late enrollment returns is $50 per return; the state may also assess further penalties and interest in addition to the sales taxes owed when the return is filed and TaxJar will AutoFile the amount that the state calculates.
TaxJar's Expected Sales Tax Due Report will also show you an estimate of what you may owe for the past due filing period. This report won't estimate penalties or interest fees that the state may add, so the final amount you'll owe will be calculated at the state's website as you're in the process of filing your return.
