Iowa Abolishes Reporting of “Sales by County”
- Aug 15, 2014 | Gail Cole
As of July 1, 2014, it is no longer a requirement for taxpayers to report “Sales by County” in Iowa Department of Revenue, this impacts sales tax, retailer’s use tax, consumer’s use tax, and direct pay. Taxable sales subject to local option tax remain reportable.
The department’s eFile & Pay system should reflect this change “on or around” October 1, 2014, when all references to “Sales by County” on quarter and annual sales and use tax returns will be deleted from all filing methods (telephone, online, and bulk filing). Additional information.
The sales tax reporting change is one of many 2013 legislative changes impacting sales and use tax—most of which took effect in 2013.
