Overall Satisfaction with TaxJar

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.
  • It saves time in calculating sales tax for me.
  • It's helped me keep my filing history organized.
  • It's helped me keep track of when sales tax are due in each state.
I haven't used other products similar to TaxJar
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.
