Annual Filers: Electronically file taxes due for 2013

Nov. 12, 2013 – TaxTalk Blog

Last year, the Indiana General Assembly passed a law that required all sales and withholding tax returns to be filed and paid electronically.

This includes the more than 40,000 annual filers who file once a year. For annual filers, this means that the sales and withholding taxes due in January for the year 2013 are required to be filed electronically through either a third-party vendor or INtax.

Businesses must either file and pay electronically or request an exemption. They can file and pay electronically by using either a third-party vendor or INtax. With the INtax online filing and payment system, businesses can easily and quickly file and pay sales and withholding taxes.

With INtax, businesses can do many things, including:

  • Access past filings and payments 24/7
  • Submit timely payments by electronic check or credit card
  • Manage most business tax accounts from one convenient and secure application

To get started with INtax, visit If your business needs assistance with registering in INtax, call the department’s special INtax Hotline at (317) 232-2337 during regular business hours (8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday.


If you are not able to file and pay your taxes electronically, see if you qualify for an exemption from this requirement by completing and submitting a Business Exemption Form (BT-EX). The department will only mail coupons to those who have an exemption.

You may qualify for an exemption to this e-mandate if:

  • Your organization’s policy does not allow for electronic filing and/or paying
  • You do not have access to the Internet
  • You are unable to electronically file or pay because of religious beliefs

The department understands not everyone can follow this e-mandate, but it is important that you complete and submit the BT-EX as soon as possible. To request the BT-EX, call (317) 232-2337.
