What is the Seller’s Discount?

A 3% discount on the tax due is available for those who file and pay timely by the due date each month. If a filing is submitted by the due date but fails to include a payment, the discount will be disallowed and the tax due will be calculated at 6.5% with penalties and interest levied. You will be invoiced for the total amount due.
