Electrifying mandate for business tax filers
August 1, 2012 – TaxTalk Blog
This is the first of a three-part series.
This 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:
- 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.
- 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.
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 as soon as possible in order to avoid the January rush.
