UPS Store: Simplifying Sales Tax Payments and Accounting with Docyt

The UPS Store, like any business, is responsible for collecting sales tax from its customers and remitting it to the appropriate local, county, or state tax authorities.


This feature is available with select Docyt plans and not available with the Docyt Starter Plan.

The Role of UPS Store in Sales Tax Collection

To fulfil its financial obligations, UPS Store collects sales tax from its customers, which is then owed to the relevant local, county, or state tax authorities based on the applicable tax jurisdiction. In order to ensure that sales tax filings are done accurately and on time, store owners have several options to choose from:

  • Manual Filing: Store owners have the option to manually calculate and submit their sales tax payments through the online portal. Most states offer online portals where you can remit sales tax payments electronically. Visit the website of the state's Department of Revenue or equivalent agency to access their online payment system.

  • Tax Accountant: Alternatively, store owners have the option to enlist the expertise of a tax accountant who can professionally handle their sales tax obligations. This can provide peace of mind and ensure that all tax requirements are met accurately and efficiently.


Note: If you are in need of a tax partner, don't hesitate to contact your Docyt Account Manager for assistance. Docyt has formed valuable partnerships with a wide range of Tax Accountants who can provide expert guidance and support.
