CLOSE OUT OF SUGAR BEVERAGE TAX

Does the Country Owe you Money for the close out of the Sugar Beverage Tax?  If you are a retailer registered as a distributor with the County, you will be able to take a credit on your final tax return directly from the county.  If you are a retailer that did not register as a distributor with the county, you will apply for a credit/refund from each distributor with which you purchased qualifying products.  If you are a distributor (and not a retailer) and your refund or credit a retailer for the SBT, you can seek reimbursement from the County by applying for a credit on your final tax return or by applying for a refund from the department.
