Gross Receipts Tax

The Board recently learned from its auditors, Ricci & Company, that the Taxation and Revenue Department changed its statute related to tangible personal property used in the practice of veterinary medicine. Claims can be filed for a refund of Gross Receipts Taxes paid for the taxable years 2007-2010 based upon the previous statute. Attached is the prior statute and regulation for your use in making a claim. Click here for statute

UPDATE:

Filings for the gross receipts tax refunds continue to be approved by the Taxation and Revenue Department. The time frame for the entire filing and approval process for claims in excess of $10,000 is typically six (6) months; claims less than $10,000 process sooner. Don't miss out on this opportunity to recoup gross receipts taxes paid on tangible personal property in relation to your practice of veterinary medicine.
The online payments feature will be available within the next few months.
