Sales and Use Tax Filing and Payment Schedules

​Due Dates

You may not receive a notice to remind you to file your return or pay your tax so it’s important to remember the due dates listed below. The due date for filing and paying your sales and use tax are the same. If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, returns filed and payments made electronically and payments postmarked the next business day are considered timely.

  • Monthly filers – 20th day of the following month.
  • Quarterly filers – April 20, July 20, October 20 and January 20 of the following year.
  • Annual filers – February 5 of the following year.

If you reported $250,000 or more in the last fiscal year, you are required to make a June Accelerated Payment. See the Sales and Use Tax Instruction Booklet for more information on how to calculate the accelerated payment.

To check your filing frequency, log into e-Services and select your Sales and Use Tax account or call 651-296-6181.

The return and payment due dates from January 1, 2016 through December 31, 2016 are shown below. If the due date falls on a Saturday or Sunday or a holiday, the due date is the next business day.

Use the following schedule as a reminder of when to file your sales and use tax returns and make your payment.
