Rhode Island Retailers Still Waiting on Sales Tax Permits

  • Jul 2, 2014 | Gail Cole

 Rhode Island retailers are waiting on renewed sales tax permits.


Rhode Island sales tax permits expire annually on June 30. Typically, retailers who have renewed their permits (and are current on all state tax obligations) receive the new permits by mail well before each July 1. This year, however, Rhode Island retailers are still waiting for their new permits to arrive.

The delay is due to the merger and relocation of a vendor used by the Division of Taxation. Mailings of new permits are scheduled to start July 7, 2014.

According to an advisory issued by the Rhode Island Division of Taxation, retailers in good standing may continue to use their existing sales tax permits until July 18. “By then, the new ones will have arrived,” assures Tax Administrator David M. Sullivan.

Additional information is available on the department’s advisory.
