If you have collected any amount of excise tax in excess of the amount due from a retailer, you may refund the excess tax directly to the retailer. This may occur if you used the incorrect wholesale cost or mark-up rate when calculating the amount of excise tax due from a retailer in an arm's length transaction. You may claim a credit for that amount of excise tax that was collected in excess, remitted to CDTFA, and returned to the retailer on a future quarterly tax return (provided the credit is claimed on a return no later than three years from the date of the overpayment). CDTFA staff may request documentation to support the credit that is claimed on the return. Examples of documentation that are acceptable include, but are not limited to, a copy of the receipt or invoice listing the amount of excise tax collected and subsequently returned to the retailer, along with the retailer's acknowledgement that the excess tax collected was returned to him/her.
