Generally, your tax refunds are issued within 8 weeks of filing your tax return with the Hawaii Department of Taxation. However, suppose you make the wrong choice and are better suited to file more frequently than indicated on your GE tax license application. In that case, the Hawaii Department of Taxes will adjust your filing frequency accordingly and send you written notice. If your adjusted gross income in Hawaii for the tax year was less than $30,000 and you paid more than $1,000 in rent, you may be eligible for a $50 tax credit for each qualifying tax exemption in your household.

Registration in Hawaii may remain in a “Pending” state for a little longer than registration in other states because we also need to request third party access to your Hawaii tax online account to automatically archive your returns. For Hawaii, we may not automatically archive returns until we have third-party access to your Hawaii Tax Online account. Reconciliation can be done online if you have an online account registered for your GE tax license (registration on the Hawaii E-File website is available here), or simply reach out to our PriorTax Tax Service Professionals for Live Tax Support.

How often you need to file GE Hawaii tax forms generally depends on the amount of GE tax you owe during the year. For example, if you pay a total of more than $4,000 in GE tax in Hawaii during the year, you may need to file Form G-45 monthly. Generally, only real estate valued over $5,490,000 is required to file a tax return in the State of Hawaii. The State of Hawaii requires taxes if you are a resident or non-resident and receive income from a Hawaiian source. Anyone doing business in Hawaii must file a state tax return, regardless of whether the individual earns taxable income from the business.

Business Tax and LLC Online Tax filing in Hawaii

Out-of-State Sales Hawaiian companies only have to pay out-of-state sales tax if they have connections in other states. If your LLC is going to sell goods to customers in Hawaii, you will need to collect and pay a General Excise Duty (GET; essentially a sales tax).

But, first, submit your Hawaiian General Excise Tax Return. This can be done with the help of the PriorTax Tax Service Professionals; in addition to Form G-45, Hawaiian general excise taxpayers must complete Form G-49 (Annual Report and Reconciliation of General Excise/Use Tax Declaration) annually.
