If you’re a business collecting taxes, you must report, file, and remit the taxes collected in every jurisdiction that you’re registered in.
Each jurisdiction determines the information, format, and frequency required for reporting and filing taxes. For example, some states in the US want businesses to report at the city, county, special purpose district, or other level when filing, whereas others only need information at a more consolidated or state level.
Additionally, each jurisdiction mandates their own method and timing of remittance, and may vary depending on your volume of sales into that location. For instance, as of March 2021, in Europe, VAT Mini One Stop Shop (MOSS) returns are always due quarterly regardless of volume, whereas in the United States in Connecticut, the frequency varies between monthly, quarterly, and yearly based on total tax liability.
Stripe offers a few different reports depending on your integration, however Stripe Tax doesn’t currently file or remit taxes on your behalf. For automating filing in the US, we recommend using TaxJar’s auto file solution. In Europe, we recommend using Taxually or Marosa.

Please ensure you understand and comply with obligations of each jurisdiction and consult your tax advisor if you need help.
Stripe Tax users can leverage the itemized and summarized exports to prepare, file, and remit the tax that was automatically calculated and collected.
If you aren’t using Stripe Tax and are instead using Tax Rates to define and maintain rates yourself, there are specific exports available depending on your integration and use case. You can leverage up to four different reports depending on your integration.
