Food and Beverage Tax and County Innkeeper’s Tax Available Online

Nov. 12, 2014 – TaxTalk Blog

For business owners, managing taxes is complicated. Usually many different taxes affect a single business, which requires keeping up to date on regular filings and payments.

Take a hotel for example, which could file and pay withholding tax, sales tax, county innkeepers tax, food and beverage tax, and possibly even more.

To help business owners, the department made food and beverage tax (FAB) and county innkeeper’s tax (CIT) available in INtax to file and pay online.

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.
