January 2021 Sales Tax Due Dates

by Sarah Craig December 14, 2020


At TaxJar, we call January the “Sales Tax Perfect Storm” because nearly every online seller will have a sales tax deadline. Monthly and quarterly deadlines both fall this month, with the added bonus that most states’ annual deadlines also occur in January.

To tackle your sales tax the simple way, just login to TaxJar.com and let us do the heavy lifting for you. We’ll provide you with all the info you need to file your sales tax returns yourself, or AutoFile for you in every U.S. state. Just click “Enroll in AutoFile” next to a state on your TaxJar dashboard to get started.

Remember, even if you didn’t collect any sales tax, you’re still on the hook to file a “zero return” and even the smallest hobby seller will likely have a sales tax return due in January.

As always, if you need help collecting, reporting and filing sales tax, sign up for a 30-day free trial of TaxJar.
