Sidr Tax begins filing for our clients between the 5th- 15th of each month, and we schedule all payments on the 15th. If we file past the 15th, we will default payments to go out as soon as the state site allows. During this time frame, you want to ensure that your payment methods on file are properly funded for the payments to process without issue, not doing so may result in rejected payments and penalty fees and interests. We will also go over the monthly estimated remittance report.

Monthly Estimated Remittance Report

At the beginning of each month, Sidr Tax provides an estimated tax to remit for the month. It's calculated based on the actual tax you collected from the customer previously.
The total number of the monthly estimated remittances is based on the filing periods that Sidr Tax is autofiling for you.
There is a capability to filter into previous months to view previous filings.
