Since 2005 Indiana has offered an electronic filing and payment system for business taxpayers called INtax. The system allows business taxpayers to report and remit sales tax, withholding tax, tire tax, prepaid taxes, wireless prepaid taxes, and others at one site. Payment can be made through INtax or electronic funds transfer (EFT).
Those who are not registered to file and/or pay online currently receive coupons to submit and pay their trust taxes. Early, monthly, 4-week, and seasonal filers receive these coupons every six months. Annual filers receive their coupon once a year.
Effective Jan. 1, 2013, ALL Indiana businesses will be required to report and pay sales tax and withholding electronically. Thus, the distribution of these coupons will change beginning in January 2013.
The Department of Revenue will mail 6-month coupons to all who have not yet registered to file and pay electronically at the end of 2012 as well as those who have received approved exceptions.
However, in mid-2013 the Department will discontinue mailing coupons for sales and withholding. Moreover, the coupons will NOT be available upon request. Thus, taxpayers will need to report and remit electronically or fail to comply with the law.
Taxpayers should register for INtax (www.intax.in.gov), begin using software approved by the Department, or go to a tax professional that is electronically filing these taxes before Jan. 1, 2013, rather than risking non-compliance and legal actions.
