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.

My company sells natural health and beauty items online via Etsy and Amazon. We use TaxJar to calculate state sales tax and manage state sales tax filings.
  • Works seamlessly with Amazon and Etsy to calculate state sales tax owed
  • State sales tax reports are easy to read and understand
  • Allows recording of filing history
  • Users can edit and manage of individual states
  • Many states have different requirements: I wish each state account had more options for notes and other ways to document what is going on with each state. For instance, to be able to track the online account login information, add notes about communication with the state, fees outside of sales tax that have been paid or due, etc.
  • I'd love to take advantage of the AutoFile but at $25 per state, and having to file in 31 states , 14 of which I have to file monthly, AutoFile just isn't economical.
  • This is really picky but: previous period sales tax is always paid in the next period. However, the default when you look at any report or when you go to record the filing history is the current period. The default should always be the most recent period, since that's the period you're looking at 95% of the time.
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.

  • Ecommerce tax calculation
  • Tax reporting
  • Tax report preparation and filing
  • 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
TaxJar works great for API eCommerce tax calculations both at checkout and for estimating. It also works great integrated with an ERP to ensure that the right tax is being charged based on a geolocated address match. As long as a robust integration has already been built for your software this option is excellent. If you have to build it yourself the time/value will not be quite as clear.

TaxJar has simplified record keeping and saves us multiple hours per month while allowing us to keep up with the rapidly changing legal status of Online Sales Tax Collection. I feel confident that my company remains compliant.
  • TaxJar automates filing with multiple states Sales Tax Agencies
  • TaxJar keeps track of which of my transactions require collection of sales tax.
  • TaxJar spends the time keeping up with the rapidly changing legal status of collecting sales tax for online transactions.
  • TaxJar will need to improve its functionality as the sales tax law changes from 2018 take effect.
  • TaxJar needs to improve its pricing to allow for collecting sales tax and remitting into multiple states.
  • TaxJar will need to bring on my customer service reps to keep up with its growth.
All or most of small to mid-size e-Commerce business owners should be utilizing TaxJar. Its automation and reports are the only way to help our businesses remain compliant as the laws are constantly changing. Specifically, with the big change in 2018 most of us will not be able to remain in business and compliant without an automated system.

TaxJar helps me take 10,000 orders and pulls information like zip codes so that I can figure out exactly how much tax is owed in each individual municipality. It centralizes policy, and knows if I have a nexus in each state and how much I owe in each locality. It knows things like if shipping and gift wrapping are taxable in states. I can't imagine running my small business without it.
