As the FIRST IRS AUTHORIZED & ONLY DECADE OLD E-file Service Provider for E-filing, it is our duty to alert all excise taxpayers of the upcoming deadline. Form 720, Quarterly Federal Excise Tax Reporting, to be sent by the end of the calendar quarter. Form 720 is filed quarterly to record taxes levied on the manufacturing, distribution, or use of a certain class of goods and materials, with the first quarter deadline falling on April 30th, 2021. We’re halfway through April, which means we’re approaching the Due Date for the first quarter of 2021. Walking to the local IRS office or mailing the paper-filled Form 720 in this short time period is the slowest way of filing form 720 and you can foresee a delay in getting the filings acknowledged and if the date is skipped or filed late, you will have to incur penalties.
Keep in mind that even though you have no sales to record, you must also file a Form 720 by choosing the alternative for a Zero Return (Zero Tax Liability). This is to notify the IRS that you have no Excise taxes to declare for the year.
