If this is your first time accessing the MRE Dashboard MTO will allow you to select Create a New Relationship, connecting to a business account.

You can even connect to multiple businesses! Once you’re connected, a tile with the name of the business will appear.

In order to access MRE options for a business, you will need to select the specific tile.

Additional Options

On the right side of the summary screen under MRE actions you’ll notice different drop-down options. These drop-downs house the ability for you to do a variety of different things such as file & pay tax returns, amend filings, maintain locations and review correspondence!

You’ll also notice there is a green tile that reads “Sales, Use and Withholding Tax” toward the bottom of the page. This tile will allow you to have direct access to your Sales, Use, and Withholding dashboard. You might be thinking “Why is this important?” don’t forget that as an MRE business you are required to file both MRE and Sales tax returns.
