Add Local Tax and Other Taxes to a Sales and Use Tax Return

​You must add lines to your Sales and Use Tax return if you're required to report and pay local or other taxes that aren't already listed. This includes:

  • if there are any local sales and use taxes you're newly required to pay
  • if you start selling a taxable product or service that is reported separately (such as liquor or car rentals)

You can add local or other taxes two ways. If you:

  • do NOT have a return in process, use the From the Sales and Use Tax Account method
  • do have a return in process, use the From a Sales Tax Return method

From the Sales and Use Tax Account

To add local taxes from your Sales and Use Tax account:
  1. Select Manage Locations from the I Want To section.
  2. Select the Location Code link for the location you wish to edit.
  3. Select the Edit Location button.
  4. Complete the remaining steps as directed.

The new taxes will be added to your registration and new returns overnight.


From a Sales Tax Return 

To add lines to your Sales and Use Tax return:
  1. Select the Add a Tax Line link at the bottom of the return.
  2. Select the appropriate local tax or other tax line you need to add from the drop-down menu. 
  3. Enter an amount. If needed, repeat steps 1-3 until you have added all the local tax or other tax lines.
  4. Select Next and complete the remaining steps to file your return.

The new lines will be added to your registration when we process your return. The lines should appear on your return the next time you file.

Note:  If you added a line in error, delete it by selecting the red x icon.
