How to register for a sales tax permit in the District of Columbia

Sidr Tax creates the sales tax account for you. However, this state requires that you have your own login and we access your account as a third-party.

DC sales tax registration requires your formation document. Depending on your business type, please provide:

Articles of Incorporation - Business is registered as a "Corporation"
Articles of Organization - Business is registered as a "Limited Liability Company"
Certificate of Trade Name Registration - Business is registering with a DBA/Trade Name

After Sidr Tax applies for a sales tax permit on your behalf, you will receive your sales tax permit and filing frequency in the mail. It can take 1-2 weeks for you to receive it.

You can then create an account on myTax DC.
