How to Register: In Mississippi, you can register your business online. Forms are not available online for paper registration. Contact The Department if you require a paper application.
Registration Cost: No fee, however, depending upon the nature of the business, or past history of the applicant, a bond may be required to be posted before a permit is issued. Typically, taxpayers applying for a sales tax permit and who operate a business without a permanent place of business within the state are required to post a cash sales tax bond or an approved surety bond.
Filing Requirements: You are required to file online if you report more than 4 rates of tax, or you have more than one sales tax account or business location subject to Sales Tax.
If you do not file your return online, a pre-addressed sales tax return is mailed to you 30 days before the due date.
Due Date: Returns are due on or before the 20th day following the end of the reporting period.
