Electrifying mandate for business tax filers

Jan. 7, 2013 – TaxTalk Blog

This is the first of a three-part series.

Last year the Indiana state legislature passed a few laws that change the way business taxpayers will be required to file and remit sales and withholding taxes. Here are some of the key changes:

  • Forms. As of June 30, 2012, anyone who is required to file more than 25 W-2s, 1099-Rs, or WH-18s with Indiana must file them electronically.
  • Filings and payments. By no later than Jan. 1, 2013:
    • All retail merchants must report and remit sales tax electronically.
    • All withholding agents must report and remit withholding taxes electronically.
    • Quarterly withholding filings will be eliminated.

How to file electronically…for free. We want you to know that Indiana has a free online tax filing system for sales and withholding tax returns. It is called INtax. We recommend you register with INtax and begin filing electronically.
