When Are Bills Generated?

Tax bills are generated monthly and sent through the U.S. Postal Service to the business address on file. If you are expecting a bill and have not received one, please contact us.

What You Owe

All tax types will appear on one bill. For example, if you owe sales and use tax and corporate income tax, they will both appear on the same bill.

Interest, Penalties, and Fees

Your tax bill may include additional charges for penalties and interest.  For more details, refer to late returns and payments.
