Did you know more than 1,540 businesses report Indiana alcohol and tobacco taxes?
How these taxes are reported and paid has seen a recent change. The 2014 general assembly passed a new electronic mandate which will help simplify reporting and paying these taxes. Effective July 1, 2014, all businesses in Indiana must file and pay their alcohol excise taxes, cigarette taxes, and other tobacco product (OTP) taxes electronically. Additionally, all informational returns must be submitted electronically.
Although the law requires taxpayers to begin filing and paying electronically by July, the department understands taxpayers may need more time to accommodate this new process. Therefore, the department will not accept returns electronically until later this year.
This additional time allows affected businesses to prepare to bulk file their returns. The department is developing the bulk upload capability, and a bulk upload guide for taxpayers already is available online.
Additionally, the department is sending letters directly to affected taxpayers with more and detailed information about these new processes. The letters introduce electronic filing, introduce web pages for the special tax e-mandate, announce bulk upload testing availability, and remind taxpayers of the filing deadline.
For more detailed information about these new electronic filing requirements, visit the following web pages:
