Effective July 1, 2010, the filing and payment due date the Hawaii Gallonage Tax, will change from the last day of the month to the 20th day of the month. Wineries shipping to consumers in Hawaii are required to file a “Combined Monthly Return of Liquor Tax and Report of Wine Gallons and Dollar Volume of Taxable Sales” (Form M-18) and pay gallonage tax to Hawaii’s Department of Taxation each month. Please see the document, “Announcement No. 2010-02,” issued by the Department of Taxation for additional information about changes to the payment of taxes in Hawaii.
