All PTAs whose annual gross receipts are normally $50,000 or less can satisfy their annual reporting requirement by electronically submitting Form 990-N. Filing of the 990N e-postcard is due by November 15th.  Your unit must email a copy of the filing confirmation to idahopta@idahopta.org.taxes-due

The sales tax return is Form 850. If you file monthly, it’s due the 20th of the month following the tax period (e.g. October’s return is due November 20). If you file quarterly, it’s due the 20th of the month following the end of a quarter. For example, the first quarter return is due April 20. You can e-file your sales tax return online.

Personalized copies of Form 850 are mailed to account owners and aren’t available on the website. If you’ve misplaced your paper returns, you can request reprints by calling the Tax Commission.

Here’s a chart of the due dates for sales and withholding.

If you are selling ANY items, your unit must have a seller’s permit issued by the Idaho Tax Commission
