May I walk-in to a Revenue office and obtain a tax clearance letter?

A taxpayer may walk into our main office or one of our regional offices (locations listed below) and obtain either a tax clearance for reinstatement or a tax clearance for good standing.  Tax clearances for reinstatement may be issued if the taxpayer has filed and remitted payment for all the required franchise and excise tax return periods.  Tax clearances for good standing may be issued if the taxpayer has filed all returns and remitted payments for all taxes required under the law.  A taxpayer may not walk into an office and file a delinquent return and payment and receive one of these clearances.  The delinquent return and payment must post to the taxpayer’s account before either of the clearances may be issued.

A taxpayer may not walk into our main office or one of our regional offices (locations listed below) for a tax clearance for termination or withdrawal.  A final franchise and excise tax return must be filed and the Audit Division must review all tax filings for accuracy before the clearance is granted.  An auditor may contact the taxpayer and request additional information regarding the books and records.  The tax clearance will be mailed to the taxpayer as soon as the review has been completed.
