Sales and Use Tax - Informal Filing
(What To Do If You Donít Have a Form)



Forms ST-50/51
The Division of Taxation has phased out the use of paper sales and use tax returns and no longer issues Form ST-50/51 coupon booklets. Monthly (Form ST-51) and quarterly (Form ST-50) sales and use tax returns must be filed online or by phone and payments must be made by electronic check (e-check), credit card, or electronic funds transfer (EFT).
