Sales Tax Quarterly 2019-01 Don’t Overpay – Completing Your Sales Tax Return Accurately (MP3)
  • This episode highlights the sales tax return form and what to include when reporting your total sales, taxable sales and taxable purchases.
  • As the seller, did you include sales tax in the sales price you billed your customer? If so, make sure to “back out” the sales tax before reporting on your sales tax return.
  • To “back out” the sales tax, follow this formula:
    • Sales price (tax included) divided by (1.0 plus your applicable tax rate) equals the taxable amount.
    • For example, your total sales (tax included) are $1,000 and your tax rate is 8.25 percent (0.0825). The formula is $1,000 divided by 1.0825 (1.0 plus 0.0825), which equals $923.78. Remember to round to the nearest dollar on your sales tax return, $924.
