I contracted with a Certified Service Provider (CSP). How are my returns filed and payments made?

Answer: The CSP will file your returns directly with each state each month using a Simplified Electronic Return (SER).  You will send one payment for all the state’s taxes to the CSP and the CSP will remit the taxes due directly to each state. 

Note: If you register through the Streamlined Sales Tax Registration System (SSTRS) prior to having a contract with a CSP, you are responsible for filing the returns and paying the tax directly to each state, until the contract with the CSP begins.  The CSP will file the returns and remit the tax for you once the contract has begun.
