It is really well suited for accountants that simply prepare the returns and need accurate data. This makes the review process much quicker. If you do not have WorkStream connected it is tough to track the progress of a project. You have to check the reports daily to see if you have any work to do

If you aren't a tax professional, this is a must. Trying to manually calculate which county/city/state sales tax is owed will break your brain. Actually, even if you were a tax professional, why would you want to manually do it when you could just have a tool like this to calculate it for you. I wish it was also affordable to have it file for you and there are some crunchy bits, but its pros definitely outweigh the cons.

Pros

CCH SureTax

  • The ability to eliminate errors is an excellent feature. The program auto populates the sales and use tax forms as well as validates addresses
  • This integrates with Microsoft Dynamics which allows you to run automated processes and track the progress on each project.
  • It also auto populates the sales tax forms and has error messages so you can be sure to have accurate data and not receive notices.

TaxJar

  • The CSV upload for clients that do not have or want to connect directly is very good. It allows us to get a lot of the information done quickly.
  • The cost is very competitive.
  • According to our clients, the integration is relatively easy.
  • For the most part, the reports are accurate.

Cons

CCH SureTax

  • The reporting system is really limited and hard to define useful reporting.
  • A really clunky system and not intuitive to use.
  • The error messages are really vague and you have to "guess" occasionally why the error is there.

TaxJar

  • Could use some additional integration options with major software providers
  • Additional rules for specialized product types would be helpful
  • Different systems can sometimes integrate and round differently causing issues with reconciliation

We had a few questions about integrations & onboarding, and support answered quickly and in-depth. They understood our questions - which were a bit technical in nature - and were able to provide an explanation in a timely and specific manner that allowed us to get the system up and running quickly.

I have not used any other products like TaxJar. I'm not even sure who the competitors are. I'm sure that they are out there, but this was the first one I found when looking for providers that worked with Amazon, and since it worked so seamlessly I never bothered to look for another provider.

Return on Investment

CCH SureTax

  • It has improved accuracy and in doing so has created a better client experience.
  • It has improved efficiency and allows for more accountants to enter data.
  • The training has helped the whole team learn the basics which makes it nice to have back up people if something happens.

TaxJar

  • First of all, it is super easy to enroll and use. It automatically transfers the sales tax information from my amazon.com seller central and put them on my account of TaxJar. It is easy to understand and they not only display my state's sales tax but other states too.
  • Second, it offers a lot of sales tax related articles and videos that you could read or watch and learn from. I like the video that tells me how to file and remit taxes and it is so easy. It saves tens of hours. I can't imagine filing it without TaxJar and what a headache it might be.
  • Third, the software and its site is beautifully designed and very user-friendly. They are good at it and I see this company will be more successful in future as we are having a new sales tax wave.
