Indiana Regulations Expand the Use of Electronic Payment System and

The 2012 Indiana General Assembly passed a law requiring all businesses to report
and remit sales and withholding taxes electronically beginning January 1, 2013.

Any businesses currently filing sales or withholding taxes via paper forms and paying via check will need to register with INtax to start filing and paying electronically in 2013, as the paper method will no longer be maintained by the Indiana Department of Revenue.

Using INtax to file and pay sales and withholding taxes provides substantial benefits to taxpayers.

INtax users:

1. Have a complete record of filings and payments with 24/7 access

2. Can submit timely payments via electronic check or credit card

3. Can manage all business tax accounts from one convenient login

To register for INtax, please visit  INtax also offers tutorials for
step-by-step instructions on how to register, set up bank account information for EFT, and how to navigate the site.  The INtax Hotline is also available at
(317) 232-2337 for assistance.

                                        SERVING THE COMMUNITY

The Boys & Girls Club of Porter County, the Chesterton site, was helped out on the 10th annual CPA Day of Service  Friday September, 21st.  Swartz Retson & Co., P.C.,  partnered up with accounting students from Indiana University Northwest and Purdue University Calumet.  A tremendous amount of work was accomplished at the Boys & Girls Club; a new coat of paint now covers the walls of the reception area, game room, homework room, and hallways, along with new base boards that were put in place in the huge game room.  A table and 100 piece train set were also assembled for the kids to play with. 
The kids were astonished when they saw the new colors on the walls and the new toys to play with.  It has been a great opportunity to help the community as well as promoting the values of the CPA designation with local accounting students.
