  Q. Under what circumstances will a taxpayer be issued a direct payment permit?

A.  A taxpayer must meet all of the following criteria:

  • Issuance of a direct payment permit to the taxpayer will not jeopardize the collection of sales and use taxes;
  • The taxpayers accounting system must clearly indicate the amount of sales and use taxes owed;
  • The taxpayer must be regularly audited by DRS;
  • The taxpayer must remit sales and use taxes by EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer); and

The taxpayer must agree that it may be identified as a direct payment permit holder on the DRS website and in any other related publications, and in any other manner for tax administration purposes.
