Closing and reopening a state or local tax account

When you hire your first employee in a new state, you’re usually required to register your business in that state—this makes sure any applicable state taxes and filings can be paid and submitted to the appropriate tax agencies.

When a company no longer has any active employees in a state, and doesn’t plan to hire any in the near future, it may be necessary to close one or more of the applicable state tax accounts.
