The Geographical Information System (GIS) is used by taxpayers
to locate four-digit location codes and local sales tax rates
for specific physical locations within the state. The information
entered into this application is not considered confidential.
The geographic data, such as annexations, new
roads, name changes, etc. is updated quarterly. Therefore,
although your location information may be valid, it may not
be included in the current GIS database. To obtain the sales
tax rate information for a general area, rather than a specific
address, you may wish to use the Cities/Counties Map Lookup,
send us an e-mail
message or call the Telephone Information Center at 1-800-647-7706.
Sellers using the GIS database in determining the sales/use
tax remitted to the Department of Revenue will be held harmless
and not liable for any additional taxes due or related interest
and penalties for under-collection of taxes with respect to
calculation errors resulting from the proper use of the database.
If errors result in over-collection of taxes, sellers must
either refund the over-collected amount to buyers or remit
the entire amount of tax to the Department as required by law.
The sales and use tax rates on the GIS are updated quarterly
to recognize annexations and corrections. Sellers must update
their GIS information at the beginning of each quarter to
be considered to be properly using the technology.
If you have suggestions, comments or questions about the
GIS, please contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
