At the recent County Officials Orientation Program, several county clerks asked for samples of completed business tax returns. The Department of Revenue has prepared a sample completed Phase-In Return for taxpayers, and a sample completed return for county clerks to remit collections to the Department of Revenue. We are enclosing copies of these two forms.
Each county clerk should already have received from the Department of Revenue a memorandum explaining the collection of the new business tax, together with blank returns. There has been a slight revision to Line 9 of the taxpayer return, so we are sending you a copy of that revised form as well.
If you have questions about the implementation of the new business tax, please contact the Department of Revenue or visit their website, or contact your CTAS county government consultant.
