Why is My Return Showing $0.00 for the Amount Due When I have a Tax Liability?


You have a tax liability due in a particular jurisdiction but the associated return is showing an amount due of $0.00

  • Make sure that the tax type you collected on your transactions matches the tax type being remitted on the form you selected in the associated filing calendar
    • If you calculated sellers' use tax but the form you selected is only for sales tax then the amount due will be $0.00 since the correct tax type was not collected. 
  • The return may not be set to be filed at the current time.
    • If that is the case- you will see "accrual" to the far right for amounts in the liability worksheet
