As part of a new integrated tax system, the Missouri Department of Revenue has established new filing requirements for sales and use tax forms that will become effective August 1, 2017. Filers will recognize several formatting changes along with modified codes for identifying business locations. As many tax filers generate their own returns, they must ensure they are being compliant with the new standards as of August 1.
The proper jurisdiction code, item code and site code must be used to guarantee the proper tax rate is utilized. In comparison to past standards, jurisdiction codes will be expanded by three digits in the future to represent all applicable districts. The new jurisdiction codes and format can be found on the Missouri Department of Revenue website.
Special item tax rates will also see a reporting change. The current special item taxes are identified by a four digit alphanumeric code. These special item taxes will be represented by a unique numeric code in the new system.
