NOTICE OF CLOSEOUT FOR SELLER'S PERMIT
SECTION III: CHECKLIST INSTRUCTIONS ALL CLOSEOUTS Return your seller's permit, if available Your seller's permit is the goldenrod document you received when you initially applied for your Sales Tax Permit. If you are currently unable to locate this document but do so in the future, please destroy the permit. Location of your books and records The location of your books and records is important for audit purposes. Audits are important because they protect the state against an underpayment of the sales tax and protect the taxpayer against an overpayment of the sales tax. Final Tax Return with Payment If you do not have a copy of your final sales tax return(s) available, please call 800-400-7115 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time to request a sales tax return, or contact your local Board office for a final return. If you are required to make payments by EFT, you must also make your final payment through the EFT process.
CLOSEOUT BECAUSE BUSINESS SOLD and/or SECURITY DEPOSIT IS BEING REFUNDED Copy of your escrow instructions or bill of sale These documents show the value of inventory, fixtures and equipment sold. The sales price of your fixtures and equipment must be included on line 2 of your final return. If a sale of fixtures and equipment is not considered at the date of closeout, a subsequent single sale of the fixtures may be treated as an occasional sale. The single sale of fixtures and equipment subsequent to the date of closeout is taxable if either: a. The sale occurs within 60 days of the date of closeout and the taxpayer cannot establish that the sale was not considered at the time of closeout; or b. The sale takes place after 60 days and within one year of the closeout date, and: 1. A contract of sale existed at the date of closeout, or 2. A lease with an option to buy exists, or 3. Arrangements have been made for a plan to sell the fixtures and equipment in due course. Duplicate copies of your last two tax returns, including your final reporting period and canceled checks (photocopies of front and back) as proof of payment This requirement ensures that payments for all amounts due have cleared your bank. If these items are not provided, the Board must wait 30 days to process the finalizing of your permit and/or return any security that is to be returned. Final payments Payment of any amounts due must be made in certified funds in order to expedite finalizing your closeout transaction. Accounts required to make their tax payments by EFT must also make their final payments through the EFT process. If you need assistance in providing any of the items listed above, contact your nearest Board office for detailed instructions.
