The Missouri Department of Revenue (DOR) implemented a new integrated tax system for filing the 53-1 (Sales and Use Tax Return form), 53-C (Consumers use Tax Return form) and 53-V (Vendors Use Tax Return form). The new standards are for use after August 1, 2017. The system will provide the DOR the ability to scan and capture information on most paper returns. In order for this to work, the returns must be uniform in appearance and format.
More details issued by the DOR on the notice entitled “New Sales & Use Tax Return Format” can be found here. Please note, the online reporting system has not been updated with the new format.
