AIMS' Electronic Motor Fuel Tax Filing Solution
AutoTax is AIMS' solution for offering every marketer or jobber a better choice when electronically filing motor fuel tax schedules. Regardless of the accounting software you are using, AutoTax is a viable, cost-effective solution. It can be used by both AIMS' clients and marketers who are using another company's accounting software.
Today, more and more states either require or allow petroleum marketers to file motor fuel tax reports electronically. Unfortunately, there are no consistent standards among the states and we find that each state requires its own unique file format. AutoTax simplifies the e-filing and reporting process.
Each state certifies that AutoTax can correctly produce the specific file format required by that state. AutoTax produces numerous file formats, including EDI ("electronic data interchange”), XML, Excel, .csv and more.
Motor fuel tax data produced by your current accounting system is imported into AutoTax. AutoTax converts that data to the proper file format required by each state and then creates a file that can be transmitted to a state's revenue department.
If you are currently using AIMS' accounting software, such as COMPAS 8.0 or COMPAS Commander, our software produces the required import file. Once the tax reports have been built in either COMPAS 8.0 or Commander, the "export” option is chosen and the data is moved into the AutoTax conversion software. It only takes a few minutes to submit schedules for each state.
If you are using another company's accounting software, AIMS can provide conversion software that will prepare your data to be imported into AutoTax. AutoTax converts that data to the proper file format required by each state and then creates a file that is transmitted to a state's revenue department.
If you are already using a third party software for filing your motor fuel tax schedules, we strongly suggest you evaluate AutoTax. Our existing AutoTax clients tell us we provide a more cost effective solution than other software providers, and with AIMS there is no long term financial commitment.
Rely on AIMS for solutions. We're dedicated to providing the essential software, tools and services that make your business more manageable and profitable.
