Paper tax returns going away for those who e-file their sales tax

BOISE, IDAHO — May 13, 2010 — Retailers and others who routinely file their Idaho sales and use tax returns electronically will no longer receive paper returns from the Idaho Tax Commission.

Businesses that have e-filed their Idaho sales and use or sales-related tax returns for at least six consecutive months (or two consecutive quarters), won’t receive paper returns in the mail.

To help them remember when to e-file, they can get a schedule of 2010 filing due dates in the “Quick Picks” section of the Tax Commission Web site at

“This change will save the state more than $22,000 a year in mailing and printing costs,” said Dan John, tax policy supervisor. “It will also reduce the amount of paper we use.”

For more information, call the Tax Commission at 334-7660 in the Boise area or (800) 972-7660 toll free.
