Tax Preparation FAQs
How will I know which tax deadlines are coming up?

How do I know which states I need to file taxes in?
In most cases, businesses must pay income taxes in the states in which they incorporated. Franchise tax or sales tax may be required in additional states if the business has Nexus in them, meaning they have a significant physical presence there. Nexus rules vary from state to state.
Does ScaleFactor also help with sales tax?
ScaleFactor offers additional help for customers needing to pay sales tax in states where they have Nexus. If unsure whether or not they have Nexus in certain states, ScaleFactor also offers Nexus studies to determine if sales tax is required in the state(s) in question.
Will ScaleFactor file my personal taxes, too?
ScaleFactor TaxMax™ includes a personal filing for single-member LLCs and sole proprietorships. Additional personal filings for other entity types are available for purchase, as well.
