Which State Reports Reflect Prior Refunds?
In the California, Washington, Texas, South Carolina, Florida and Pennsylvania* Reports in your TaxJar account, refunds, returns and discounts that are imported into your account are deducted from the gross sales total in the filing period when the refund actually took place, effectively reducing the sales total for that period, which would also reduce the amount of taxes owed during the time frame as well.
*As we mention here, West Virginia, North Dakota, Georgia, Kansas, Florida, and Maine accept negative amounts in their filings, so we will always deduct refunds from the previous periods from the period when the refund took place, even if it creates a negative amount.
- *California: As of October 3, 2017
- Washington: As of November 1, 2017
- Texas, South Carolina, Florida and Pennsylvania: As of December 5, 2017
