Business Tax Registration

Business Tax RegistrationBusiness Tax Registration.

A business must obtain a sales tax license by registering with the Department of Revenue if it’s making sales of tangible personal property and taxable services (such as telephone service and fees paid into places of amusement including but not limited to yoga and fitness centers). A business should also register with the department if it is a corporation responsible for filing and paying corporate and/or franchise tax or if it has employees and is required to remit withholding tax. Also, a business selling batteries and/or new tires should register to collect and remit a fee to the department. To register a business, utilize the online registration system or submit a Missouri Tax Registration Application (Form 2643). Separate licenses for businesses wanting to operate as a motor fuel supplier, permissive supplier, distributor, terminal operator or transporter, and for businesses wanting to operate as a cigarette or other tobacco products wholesaler are required.
