A taxpayer who is required to pay any municipal transaction privilege and affiliated excise taxes to a city or town that did not have an intergovernmental contract or agreement with the department of revenue in effect as of January 1, 2013 to provide a coordinated method of collecting municipal transaction privilege and affiliated excise taxes may instead report and pay the required tax to that city or town through an online portal.
