Hi everyone!

I am trying to start my own company. One thing I can't get a hold for help is sales tax. How do I give my sales tax to the government? Anyone knows? Do you have to fill out a specific form? How often do you do it?

THANKS~

Hi iamdog,

Where are you based? Sales tax is local tax collected by most US states and some Canadian states. If you are based elsewhere, you don't need to worry about it.

If you tell me what State you live in, I can locate full instructions for you on how to get a sales tax ID and how to make payments :)

I found some details for making sales tax payments in Illinois here:

Looks like you can pay over the telephone, by Direct Pay or EFT.

More information can be found here:

You'll also find contact details for the Illinois Department of Revenue if you have further questions
