Mark Faggiano is the founder and CEO of TaxJar, a service built to make sales tax compliance easier for multi-channel ecommerce sellers.
In my experience, most folks who run a business, particularly online, is at least familiar with sales tax. Product sellers, especially, have to deal with this administrative hassle in their own state, and in many cases other states as well.
At TaxJar, we love helping people solve their sales tax problems. You should be worrying about growing your business and expanding your bank account, not how much you owe to the Colorado Department of Revenue this month. It’s an unnecessary headache you shouldn’t have to put up with.
What makes all this worse, though, is that no two states are the same. Colorado, where you live, may want a sales tax filing from you monthly. While Florida, where your satellite office, warehouse, or employee is located, may only want to see a quarterly filing from you. And if you have sales tax nexus in multiple states? Forget about it! You could find yourself with a filing due date every single month.
Show Sales Tax You’re the Boss
At TaxJar, every day we talk to business owners who sell on multiple platforms and have sales tax nexus in multiple states. We see people trying to make sure they’ve pulled a sales tax report from every platform while complying with each state’s unique reporting procedure.
Instead of struggling, let an automated sales tax solution help you out. We understand how difficult it is to keep up with this nonsense. It’s only going to get tougher moving forward as state tax authorities invent creative new ways to get more and more of your hard earned cash.
That’s why you should know if you’re an online seller you more than likely have a sales tax filing deadline in July. Whether you owe monthly or quarterly in even one state, July is probably a sales tax filing month for you. The vast majority of states have sales taxes due so even if you don’t think you owe you should check anyway to be safe.
Don’t forget – many states require you to check in anyway. So you could have a sales tax bill of $0.00 and still get hit with a late fee. Make sure you’re not going to incur anything like this by checking all the due dates.
To help you out, we’ve assembled these due dates in one blog post. This comprehensive list of July state sales tax due dates on the TaxJar blog will give you an idea of what you might owe and who to and when.
