  • Welcome to the Rhode Island Division of Taxation's self-audit program!
  • With a self-audit, you examine your own books and records to see if you owe Rhode Island's 7% use tax.
  • If you pay the use tax that you owe, the Division of Taxation will waive penalties and some interest (assuming certain other terms and conditions are met).
  • The following information explains what the self-audit program is, how it works, and what steps you'll need to take to participate in the program. (If you still have questions, call the Field Audit section at (401) 574-8962 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. business days.)
