What is my filing frequency?

When you create your TaxJar account,  your individual state Reports on your account's Dashboard automatically default to a monthly filing frequency for each state.

If you've registered for a sales tax license and you're not sure of your frequency, you can confirm the filing frequency the state has determined for you, you should contact your state's sales tax office

How do I update my Filing Frequency in my TaxJar Account?

To ensure your TaxJar Reports always match the filing frequency that the state has assigned you in the states where you've registered,  please edit the State Settings for each of your nexus states to reflect the exact filing frequency the states have assigned you. 

⚠️If you receive a filing frequency change notice from the state, if you're not enrolled in AutoFile, you must log in to your TaxJar account and update your filing frequency directly after you finish filing your last return with the current frequency.

What if I'm enrolled in AutoFile?

If you're enrolled in AutoFile, please note you must contact TaxJar and we provide instruction here for our AutoFile-enrolled customers

  • Please note, our support team cannot make this adjustment for our customers who are not enrolled in AutoFile and filing their sales tax returns on their own.

When is my sales tax return due?

Each state has a different set of sales tax return due dates. You can find the sales tax return due dates by clicking the state’s name on this map to view TaxJar’s State Guide for a specific state. On the left-hand side of the State Guide, just click the “When are returns due?” option under “Table of Contents.

We also update this section of the TaxJar blog with blog posts listing the specific sales tax return due dates by state.
