US Sales Tax Registrations - Fees Going up $25 per Registration on 1/1/2019

 

 

If you know where you want to register you can start the process by by using the link below. The link is to a secure form where you will enter all the information we need to register you. The form is hosted on a third-party secure website and all data is encrypted.  The form is a mix of all the different state forms so you will only fill this out once and we can use that information to register you everywhere without having to pester you for additional information for each state.  The form is a semi-smart form that will walk you through those sections where we must have the information based on your previous answers and skipping those sections we do not need. We will keep your information on file so you can add states in the future as you need without having to complete the form again.

Our normal turn times to submit your registrations for US entities with responsible parties that have social security numbers are 7-10 days depending from the time you provide all the information we need and the registrations are paid for. The state response times average 2-4 weeks. Our fee for these registrations are $74 per registration. 

Foreign entities or foreign ownership of US entities creates more of a challenge as the applicant will not have the information the states require. We generally have to shepherd these registrations through the process.  This can increase turn times by 1-2 weeks. Our fee for these registrations are $99 per registration.

All registration projects have a base fee of $250 that is waived if our online setup program is utilized. See below for our online setup program.

An EIN/FEIN is required for all registrations. If you do not have one, we can procure one for you for $99.

If you know where you want to register you can start the process by by using the link below. The link is to a secure form where you will enter all the information we need to register you. The form is hosted on a third-party secure website and all data is encrypted.  The form is a mix of all the different provincial forms so you will only fill this out once and we can use that information to register you everywhere without having to pester you for additional information for each province.  The form is a semi-smart form that will walk you through those sections where we must have the information based on your previous answers and skipping those sections we do not need. We will keep your information on file so you can add provinces in the future as you need without having to complete the form again.

Once you are registered the state will send you information in one or more pieces of mail. In this information will be your sales tax approval and other letter numbers, codes, pins etc that will be required to go back out online and either set up an online account and or connect your tax account to an online account. This is something that is mandatory in some states and optional in others. However, most tax preparer’s will require that you do this. While you can do this on your own, we have a service that will do this for you.

As part of the service, we will scour all the information in all of the documents the states send you. We will create the online accounts, connect the tax accounts and then create a spreadsheet with all the usernames, passwords and special pins. The spreadsheets will also contain the state filing website address, the sales tax number, the filing frequency, the effective date, the date the first return is due, the name of the tax registered for, the aka of the sales tax number, any other state numbers, and any other taxes you are registered for.

Our fees for this service are flat and based on tiered grouping of states. The $250 base fee of our registration project is waived if this option is chosen. Here are the ties and fees:

1-5 states $195.00, 6-10 states $425.00, 11-20 states $625.00, 21-30 states $775.00, 30-40 states $925.00, 40+ states $999.00
