Customer Question

Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Unfortunately, you cannot amend the application you previously submitted to change the 3/24/16 date.

As part of your application for a Certificate of Authority, you must indicate the date you plan on beginning business. You must file your first sales tax return for the sales tax quarter that includes this date.

You must file this return even if you do not start your business as originally planned. You will automatically receive a bill if you miss the required due date of your first return. The minimum penalty is $50.

Please let me know if you require further information or clarification.

Thank you and best regards,
