Array of online resources available to file sales tax returns

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance today reminded monthly and quarterly sales tax filers that returns are due no later than 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, September 20.

The department urges filers to take advantage of convenient options to help avoid filing at the last minute. Sales Tax Web File makes filing easy, fast, and flexible—allowing returns to be Web Filed early and the associated return payments to be scheduled up until the due date.

Filing resources include videos, demos, and written guidance.

Sales Tax Web File is free to use and allows payments to be made directly from a vendor’s checking or savings account. The software, designed to protect your private information, allows bank account information to be saved for future payments.
