Department of Revenue Adds Online Option for Two Taxes
Food and Beverage Tax and County Innkeepers Tax Now Available via INtax
INDIANAPOLIS (Nov. 5, 2014) – Operators of food service businesses such as restaurants and fast food stores have a new online option to submit the Food and Beverage Tax (FAB). Additionally, operators of hotels and motels also may now submit their County Innkeeper’s Tax (CIT) online. Those who collect and remit these taxes no longer need to submit paper forms and make paper check payments, but can remit and pay online through the Indiana Department of Revenue’s online business tax application, INtax.
This new service represents the department’s continued effort to provide electronic self-service options for businesses to securely and conveniently file and pay taxes online.
INtax provides a quick, easy and secure mechanism for businesses to manage their tax filings and payments. INtax is available 24/7 and provides businesses the ability to check their accounts and payments without contacting the department. It also saves businesses from having to manage and mail paper coupons and paper checks.
More than 200,000 Indiana businesses already use INtax to manage their business tax requirements.
Taxpayers can pay FAB and CIT by ACH debit and credit card payments in INtax. The department will mail coupons in December to FAB and CIT taxpayers who have not filed using INtax.
These tax types will be automatically added to INtax accounts that are registered for FAB or CIT. Service providers must add FAB and CIT to client accounts using the “Maintain Client” tab in INtax.
Visit www.in.gov/dor/3469.htm to view CIT rates, and www.in.gov/dor/4039.htm for FAB rates.
Anyone with questions about filing or paying FAB and CIT through INtax, can contact the INtax hotline at (317) 233-8729.
