How do I begin to file my sales tax returns?

Your TaxJar Reports have the data you'll need to file your returns with the state.

  • In these Reports, we've compiled all of your imported transaction data into a streamlined form that shows you your sales broken down int the way the state requires your date to be reported.
  • If you use your Report to file returns manually, you'll also want to be sure that you record the payment you make to the state in your TaxJar account.

How do I record a payment for a sales tax return that I filed?

To get started, click the name of the state that you want to file on your TaxJar Dashboard to open the Sales Tax Report. 

  • Once you have the Report open, make sure you're viewing the filing period that matches the return you need to file (use the navigation arrows in the upper right corner.) 
  • Then, click the "Record a Filing" button. 

On the next page you'll see a screen that displays your options for filing a return manually and allow you to record the amount that you paid the state in your TaxJar account's Filing history. 

Or, if you prefer not to handle this on your own, you can enroll in AutoFile to have us automatically file your sales tax returns. (We show you how to enroll in AutoFile here.)
