Counties with Negative Sales Not Allowed

GTC will no longer process your returns correctly if they include counties with negative sales.

Instead, you will have to file a request for a refund from the DOR/GTC in cases of merchandise returns or other similar situations. A copy of GTC’s instructions for requesting a refund is shown below.

While this has been the official policy of the DOR/GTC for quite a while, S-Tax users uploading or importing XML ST-3 returns have still been able to file with one or more counties having negative sales tax as long as the total return was not negative.

This is no longer the case. No single county on any ST-3 can be shown with negative sales.

We will soon modify S-Tax to prevent users from creating negative counties so that your returns will not be rejected or processed incorrectly.
