Do you have to file sales tax returns in Nevada? If you’ve been selling for a long time, or even if you’re just getting started, you’ve probably already dealt with the hassle of filing sales tax returns. And Nevada can be especially tricky.
For one, Nevada is a destination-based sales tax state. This means before you can even think about filing sales tax, you must know how much sales tax to collect from each customer.
For example, if one customer lives in the 89706 area code in Carson City, you are required to charge them 7.47% sales tax. Weird number, right? That’s the 4.6% Nevada state sales tax plus the 2.875% Carson City County tax. But if your customer lives in Sparks, you must charge them 7.72% sales tax. That’s the Nevada rate again plus the Washoe County rate of 2.875% and a district tax of .25%.
Once you’ve determined how much to collect, it’s time to file your sales tax return. The state of Nevada requires that you break down sales tax reports by tax jurisdiction.
Without a service like TaxJar, this means you’d have to pull reports from all the platforms you sell with – like Square, eBay, PayPal, Etsy, Shopify, BigCommerce and others – and then add up how much sales tax you calculated in each district. What a time consuming pain!
