Next steps after Sidr Tax applied for your Sales Tax Permits

On your registration page, if you see your state status turning green and showing either "Applied" or "Completed", it means that Sidr Tax has submitted applications for your Sales Tax Permits. Depending on which state that is, there are different steps to take to finish the registrations.

State Guides

Read our state-specific guides. You can access the guide by clicking on the "Guide" button.

Registration Details

Click on the "Details" button, and you will be able to see relevant information for this particular state.

If you see your Sales Tax ID, you can legally start charging tax. Please add this ID to your Shopify tax configuration. Here is an article from Shopify about how to set it up, or follow the steps below.

From the Shopify admin, go to Settings > *Taxes and duties**.
In the Manage sales tax collection section, click your country or region.
Click Collect sales tax.
In Tax number, enter your tax number. If you have applied for a tax number, but don't have one yet, then leave this field blank. You can update it when you receive your number.
Click Collect tax.
Optional: To add more regions and account numbers, click Collect sales tax.

If your Sales Tax ID field is empty, it means that the state DOR didn't provide that to Sidr Tax right away. Don't worry, you will still get the ID! For some states, you will see it after creating an account, for some other states, you will get it in the mail.

If there is no Sales Tax ID, it means that your sales tax ID will come in the mail. It can take 2-4 weeks for the mail to arrive, please be patient and monitor your business mailbox.

State Accounts

If you see username and password in the details section, it means that an account has been created for you. To access the account, follow our state-specific guides. You can access the guide by clicking on the "Guide" button.

If you don't see username and password in the details section, you will need to create your own state account. Follow our guide to create them!

Registration Files

You can access registration-related files by clicking on the "Get Files" button.

Sales Tax Autofile

Once you have your sales tax ID and state account ready, you can choose to enroll in our Autofile service, so you don't need to worry about sales tax filing ever again.
