Trustfile, a manufacturer of electronic state sales and use tax e-filing and payment technology, announced a reselling agreement with Independent Systems and Programming, a developer of sales and use tax calculation software, databases and forms. 

As part of the agreement, Independent Systems will market Trustfile to its customers worldwide, for the first time offering them an electronic alternative to paper-based state sales and use tax filings.  Independent also announced plans to integrate Trustfile technology into its software, allowing users to electronically submit their returns and payment online. 

"The days of paper filings are numbered and we are excited that Independent Systems has looked to Trustfile as the premier electronic filing solution to offer their customers," said Trustfile president and chief operating officer King Woolf, in a statement.

Trustfile currently processes approximately $8 billion in business taxes annually and allows users to prepare, file and pay their taxes in multiple states, including Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

According to the companies, 13 states currently have mandates in place for the electronic filing of individual income tax returns or are in the process of moving to a paperless environment. A total of 18 states have required electronic filing programs for sales tax or withholding tax filings.
