Changes to Monthly Report of State Sales and Use Tax Gross Collections
and Gross Retail Sales
We have changed our monthly Sales & Use Tax report to accommodate
legislated changes in payment and reporting requirements.
Because use taxes are no longer stated separately
on the detail schedule, sales and use taxes are now combined,
and taxable sales are computed on the total. Before this change
taxable sales were not computed for use tax collections.
We have changed the categories to include new tax
rates, and new taxes on satellite television service and liquor.
For the January report only, we have included a
category "In process" to account for $75 million of semimonthly
payments made in January but for which returns are not due until
We have modified introductory paragraphs and added
footnotes to identify and explain the changes made. Please read
these footnotes carefully. If you have any questions, please call
