Resolution

You received an email from us to say that IL may not be set up correctly on the filing calendar. If your nexus is set to Sales tax that means you collect only sales tax even for sales originating from out of state. this would normally imply a physical presence within IL. The IL ST1 form asks for information on sales from locations within IL.

If you do not have a location in IL then it may be that you should change your nexus to collect Use tax for sales originating from out of State. You would need to determine your nexus settings by checking with a CPA to be sure they were set correctly.
