If you need fast, accurate and economical state tax answers, forms, tips or advice but don't have the time or expertise to do the job alone, you can Ask the Experts for help.
If you want to do your own research, then keep in mind the following suggestions:
- 1. Start with the FAQs to get answers to the most common tax questions for each state.
- 2. When you browse, note that the main directory page (or "Home") is where you can find various categories dealing with Multistate taxes. If you're looking for specific state taxes, click on one of the states listed under "SALT World" at the bottom of the home page or where it says "Select a State" at the top of each page (including this one).
- 3. After you arrive at a particular state's main reference page, note that you will not always find too many links listed under the various subcategories (yet!). However, if you scroll down a bit, you will see a "Links" section with a dozen or more links to various sources of information for that state. The "Tax Forms," or "Department of Revenue" links are good places to start looking for the information you want.
- 4. Remember that we list only state tax links! We've already sifted through the irrelevant listings that other search engines contain. When you search State Tax Central, use key words that are more general than you would use on other search engines. For example, if you search for "California income tax nexus" on Yahoo!, the results might be manageable (if not relevant); however, if you do that here, you'll miss several relevant results. Simply search for "California" or "nexus" for better results.
- 5. Click on "Search Options" below (or at the top of any page) in order to refine your search to include key words, phrases or the logical "AND"/"OR" options. Try again below to locate what it is you're looking for.
