Mississippi businesses to pay tax online

20 August 2001  |  734 views  |  0 Mississippi businesses to pay tax online

San Fransisco-based e-payments outfit, Official Payments has expanded an agreement with the State of Mississippi to allow Mississippi citizens and businesses to pay their established business sales and use tax liabilities by credit card over the Internet and telephone.

The new agreement expands on the company's existing service, which allows Mississippi citizens to make their state income tax invoice payments by credit card, over the Internet and by telephone.

The State of Mississippi collects $2 billion annually in business sales and use tax. Business sales and use tax obligations are paid monthly, quarterly or yearly depending on the amount owed to the state.

Taxpayers using credit cards with bonus rewards programmes can, depending on their card's programme, earn rewards, points, and cash-back or airline frequent flyer miles for paying their taxes.

The new system is scheduled to go live later this year.
