State depart­ment de­lays mail-out of tax book­lets

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - BUSINESS - By Kathryn Myk­le­seth kmyk­le­seth@starad­ver­

The state ad­vised Hawaii busi­nesses seek­ing to fill out their gen­eral ex­cise tax re­turns to head on­line or to dis­trict of­fices be­fore Mon­day’s dead­line.

The busi­nesses that are en­rolled to re­ceive book­lets in the mail that in­clude the forms — the G45 for pe­ri­odic fil­ers and the G49 an­nual fil­ers — will not be re­ceiv­ing them on time. Busi­nesses need to file by Tues­day.

Mal­lory Fu­ji­tani, pub­lic in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer for the state Depart­ment of Tax­a­tion, said the mail-out that con­tains the two forms for some busi­nesses has been hung up be­cause of a de­lay in the print­ing.

“I think it is go­ing to take an­other month be­fore we can get those book­lets in the hands of tax­pay­ers,” Fu­ji­tani said. “We have forms on­line. They can file and pay on­line. We have a PDF on­line that they can down­load.” Fu­ji­tani said forms and in­struc­tions are avail­able in hard copy at the depart­ment’s dis­trict of­fices or on­line.

“For our Oahu of­fice we have a rack with all of our tax forms on it, and it is lo­cated out­side of our front door so even on the week­ends they can come by and pick up the forms,” she said. The state Depart­ment of Tax­a­tion has six dis­trict of­fice build­ings. Busi­nesses can pick up the forms at the Princess Ruth Kee­likolani Build­ing, 830 Punch­bowl St., on Oahu; 54 S. High St. No. 208 on Maui; 35 Ala Malama St., Room 101, on Molokai; 75 Aupuni St. No. 101 in Hilo; 82-6130 Ma­mala­hoa High­way No. 8 in Kona; and 3060 Eiwa St. No. 105 on Kauai.
