How to list Exempt Sales on the return in TrustFile?


You are trying to file your return and noticed that the Taxable Amount (of sales) is being increased by the amount you entered in Exempt Sales




  • To file the exempt sales on a TrustFile return, please list the Exempt Sales field as a positive number, "123.00" for example

  •  Since this filed is listed as "Exempt Sales," the TrustFile service will recognize any number entered in this field as a negative amount and reduce the Taxable Amount field

    • However, if you enter the Exempt Sales as a negative number, TrustFile will change the number to a positive and increase the Taxable Amount (of sales)
