The logic driven capability of the PAVLOU SalesTaxPRO® POS system reads the data from the user’s point of sale (POS) system(s). The user’s POS system(s) could be the POS server(s) or files generated by the user. PAVLOU SalesTaxPRO® POS (adapter) automatically reformats the data to the proper programming language and exports the data to the Tax Wizard of the PAVLOU SalesTaxPRO®.
Unlike other competing sales tax software, PAVLOU SalesTaxPRO® POS retrieves all the necessary data and automatically populates the data in the PAVLOU SalesTaxPRO® Tax Wizard for viewing. Then, the PAVLOU SalesTaxPRO® automatically : a) optimizes the deductions applicable to your situation and b) generates all State of Illinois and local tax returns (where you conduct your business).
The Illinois Dept. of Revenue accepts e-filing for Forms ST-1, ST-2, ST-4, ST-7, ST-8, and ST-14. After e-filing any of these returns, the system automatically follows through with e-payment options. For the rest of the State of Illinois and local returns generated by the system, you must print and mail them to the respective taxing authorities. The system automatically prints transmittal instructions for filing.
