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.
What Will You Need: Within a few minutes of completing your TAP taxpayer profile, you will receive an e-mail including an authorization code. Once you receive your authorization code, return to TAP and complete registration of your various tax accounts.

Once you are logged on, a list of all available filing periods is found on the account summary page. Only periods available for filing will display. Periods that are not yet filed have a “File Now” button. Select the filing period that you want, click “File Now,” and a window displaying a return form will open. Enter and complete the return information. Review the return for any errors or boxes shaded in red.

If the return is correct, enter your password to “sign” the return. Your password is your signature. There are no paper signature documents required. When you enter your password, you are declaring that the information provided is correct to the best of your knowledge.
