If an order is now returned, the customer must be refunded the sales tax that a company previously raised. However, this means that a company must submit an adjusted sales tax return. In this declaration, companies must claim the refunded sales tax so that the state can use this amount as a credit for future sales tax payments.
The reason why it is tremendously important that companies make an adjustment to the tax return is because of the dynamic change in the amount of sales tax. For example, the sales tax may increase by 1% between the time of purchase and the time of return, incorrectly crediting the company with 1% more sales tax. This becomes especially problematic if the company is a large one, as the amount then starts to add up.
