Flexible computation methods

  • Compute - Preparer enters gross sales. STP computes sales tax included in gross sales and sales tax due.
  • Impute - Preparer enters sales tax collected for the period. STP imputes gross sales and sales tax included in gross sales.
  • Manual - Preparer enters both gross sales and sales tax included in gross sales. STP calculates sales tax due. Use the manual method when sales tax included does not equal sales tax for the period (typical when sales tax was not collected accurately or there are unexpected adjustments).

Electronic payment is mandatory but is electronic filing (eFile) mandatory?

jkjklk

jkjklk

Electronic filing of the sales tax return can not be required by state tax boards due to the concept of "universal access". States cannot mandate eFile until all sales tax filers have a computer connected to the internet (in other words, never). Electronic payment can be mandated because all banks universally have electronic funds transfer.

Each state has staff that receive sales tax returns though the mail and enter them into the state system. STP is pre-approved by the state as a print and mail alternative to eFile.
