REMINDER: SEPTEMBER HAS THREE EXCISE TAX RETURN PERIODS FOR SEMI-MONTHLY FILERS
Did you ever wonder why? The Uruguay Round Agreements Act, enacted on December 8, 1994, amended the law relating to the payment of certain excise taxes. The new law permanently accelerated the payment of taxes due on distilled spirits, wine, beer, tobacco products, and cigarette papers and tubes for the second semimonthly period of September. This law splits the second semimonthly period of September into two payment periods and requires receipt of payment as shown above for both electronic fund transfer taxpayers (EFT) and those who pay by check or money order (Non-EFT) for the month of September.
This only affects taxpayers who file and pay on a semi-monthly basis, and not those who file and pay quarterly.
See Industry Circular No. 95-4, dated July 21, 1995, for additional information.
