Looking to cancel one or more of your sales tax permits? 

Whether you are closing your business or just ceasing to conduct business in a particular area, each state has unique guidelines for when and how you can cancel your sales tax permit. Our state-by-state guide will streamline the process for you - offering quick information and helpful links to make the task both more straightforward and less time-consuming.

 

Will canceling my sales tax permit increase my chances of a sales tax audit?

Canceling your sales tax permit may trigger a sales tax audit, depending on the circumstances. If you are canceling sales tax permits in multiple states, you should expect to receive questions from at least a handful of states to further explain why you are closing your permit. The states like collecting revenue, after all! 

If you are closing your permit and everything is in good standing, you likely won’t face an audit, though the likelihood of being audited is higher than average. This is why we don’t recommend that our clients close their sales tax permit if there is any chance they will need to re-open it in the next year or two. Closing (and re-opening) a permit is a big hassle and the benefits usually don’t outweigh the additional risk of an audit. 

If you are closing your sales tax permit and have past-due returns or an outstanding balance due, you can almost certainly expect additional scrutiny. 

If you are closing your sales tax permit because you are selling your business, states will regularly audit you to ensure that all tax due has been paid since the responsible party is changing. You should also be aware that many states require that you notify them of the sale before the transaction takes place. Most businesses are unfamiliar with this requirement and the problems that can arise by not following all the rules. 

 

Can I Close My Sales Tax Account If I No Longer Have Sales Tax Nexus?

If you have a sales tax permit, but you do not need it anymore because you no longer have sales tax nexus in that state, you can close your sales tax account. Closing the account means that you will not be responsible for collecting or remitting sales taxes, and won’t need to submit any sales tax filings. Before closing the account, check if there is a period of time when the permit still needs to stay open (“trailing nexus.”)

 

What Happens if I Don’t Close My Sales Tax Account and No Longer Have Nexus?

If you don’t close your sales tax account then you should still be collecting sales tax and filing returns with the state. Your obligation to collect and remit tax doesn’t go away because you no longer have nexus. Auditors may still chase you down and create tax assessments if filings are missing. Your responsibility to submit sales tax filings only ends once your sales tax account is officially closed with the state.

 

Can I Stop Collecting Sales Tax if I No Longer Have Nexus in a State?

Even if you no longer have sales tax nexus in a state, you still have an obligation to file and remit sales tax until your permit is closed. You should not turn off your sales tax collection settings until you have submitted your final sales tax return to the state and have confirmed that the account is closed. If you stop collecting sales tax before the account is closed, you may need to pay for the tax out-of-pocket. You should stop collecting sales tax from your customers on the date that your sales tax permit is closed.

 

Can I Submit $0 Sales Tax Filings if I No Longer Have Nexus?

You should continue to collect and remit sales tax even if your sales tax account is still open (even if you still have nexus). You should not submit $0 filings. If you no longer have nexus in a state and have submitted $0 returns, it might be possible to close the account using a permit end date in the past. However, this is risky and usually complicates things further and is not advised. The best thing to do is to continue collecting and remitting sales tax up until the day that the permit is officially closed.

 

Reasons To Keep Your Sales Tax Permit Open Even if You No Longer Have Nexus

Even if your business no longer has sales tax nexus, there may be reasons why it is still beneficial for you to keep your sales tax permit open. These include:

  • Believing that you may need to re-open the permit again soon
  • Avoiding unnecessary audit triggers
  • Being able to create valid resale certificates

Believing that you may need to re-open the permit again soon

One reason why you might want to keep your permit open is that you believe you may need to re-open the permit again in the near future. This could be caused by hiring employees in the state, or believing that you’re going to cross the state’s economic nexus threshold. It is a lot of work to open and close state accounts and adjusting tax collection settings, so you should really only close the account if you think it will be closed for a while.

 

Avoiding Unnecessary Audit Triggers

You should also keep in mind that closing state sales tax accounts can be a trigger for an audit. Why put yourself on a state’s radar unnecessarily, especially if you think you might need the permit opened in the foreseeable future?

 

Being able to create valid sales tax resale certificates

Finally, you should keep in mind that having an open sales tax permit means that you can still issue sales tax resale certificates in states where a permit is required. If you were to close your account, then you might not be able to issue valid resale certificates to purchase inventory tax-free. For example, California requires that you hold an in-state sales tax license in order to purchase inventory tax-free from suppliers.
