Important Reminder: Sales Report Submission Deadline

Important reminder: Any sales report authorized after the submission deadline is considered late and will be assessed a compensatory fee of $30 for each late report. This means any report authorized after 11:59 p.m. EST, on the Tuesday following the Sunday PED date (or after a holiday extension deadline), will be assessed this fee. While sales reports authorized late are statistically few in number, please remain alert to this important deadline.
