State Tax Returns can be audited and may need to be amended as a result of the audit findings. Our nationwide firm specialized in preparing Amended State B&O Sales Tax Return Services across states. Clients must have their QuickBooks Online accounting current and their Tax Agencies and Tax Rates must be setup in their Automatic Sales Tax Center. State tax rates are subject to change on a quarterly basis. If your customer sales are recorded outside of QuickBooks Online, your accountant will require this data to review and amend your State Tax Return. You will need to upload a copy of your filed return with supporting documentation into a folder within your secure document upload portal or email it directly to your accountant.

You accountant may also need to be added as a user in your POS system.

Your Accountant can Review, Amend, File & Pay Your Tax Return
