Resolution

  • Check Liability Worksheet for registration information
    • Mississippi has separate forms for Sales Tax and Consumers or Sellers Use Tax.
      • You may have a $0 return because your tax was calculated as a tax type not covered on the return you have us file.
      • Add the other form in the Filing Calendar if needed
    • Confirm you are collecting the right type of tax on your transactions using the Sales Tax and Sellers Use Tax Summary Report
      • Set Nexus to Sales Tax if you should only collect Sales Tax
      • Add any forms needed to the Filing Calendar
