US sales tax tool TaxJar now allows users to mark specific transactions as exempt from sales tax.
This means that sales tax reports will be more accurate, and sales tax returns can be automatically filed without running into any roadblocks.
Before this new feature, if users sold a taxable item to a tax-exempt buyer, such as resellers, government entities or educational institutions, the system had no way of knowing that sales tax should not be charged. With the new feature, sellers can mark a transaction as "exempt" one time, and TaxJar will record that in the system and account for it correctly in reports and returns.
US sales tax calculation and filing tool TaxJar can now import orders from the Walmart marketplace.
Marketplace sellers on Walmart can import new orders, and up to 90 days of past orders, into TaxJar. Older orders can be imported using a CSV file. TaxJar then calculates the sales tax due to each US state where the seller is liable.
TaxJar has also improved its AutoFile functionality, which automatically submits state sales tax returns. TaxJar users can now easily see the status of state filings from the dashboard to determine if a filing is scheduled, processing, or filed. The dashboard also shows the exact date when a filing will be processed and filed by TaxJar, rather than the state's filing deadline.
TaxJar's sales tax calculator, SmartCalcs, now provides faster rate lookups by using address autocompletion technology from Addressy. The calculator automatically fills in city, zip code, and country when the user starts typing an address.
US Sales Tax calculation and filing tool TaxJar now provides free real-time sales tax calculations for Magento stores, and also Ecwid stores on the Venture plan and above.
TaxJar SmartCalcs is now free for Magento merchants, as part of TaxJar's Premier Partnership with Magento. The calculations, available for both Magento 1 and Magento 2, help sellers accurately collect sales tax from buyers.
The service is also now available for ecommerce platform Ecwid, which enables sellers to add an online shopping cart to an existing website or social media page. TaxJar calculations are free for Ecwid subscribers on the Venture plan and above.
TaxJar SmartCalcs automatically calculates the correct amount of sales tax due, updates tax rates, collects origin-based or destination-based sales tax and applies sales tax to shipping charges if required.
TaxJar's Reports service creates filing-ready reports for each US state, and starts at just $19/month based on the number of transactions.
Stripe merchants can now use TaxJar's "SmartCalcs" tax calculation feature when accepting payments online or via mobile devices.
The US has 12,000 taxing jurisdictions for sales tax, with differing rules and rates. TaxJar SmartCalcs ensures the correct sales tax rate is used at the Stripe checkout, including Stripe Relay which is used for purchases in third-party apps such as Twitter and ProductHunt.
All Stripe transactions are imported into TaxJar Reports for easy sales tax reporting and filing. TaxJar starts at just $19/month for up to 1,000 transactions, with a 30-day free trial.
Stripe and TaxJar's previous integration provided only TaxJar Reports (sales tax reporting and filing).
US Sales Tax calculation and filing tool TaxJar now has an alternative source of tax rates for their SmartCalcs sales tax API.
SmartCalcs API users can now download the latest sales tax rates in advance, to provide an alternative source of rates in the event that the API goes down or is slower than expected.
Summarized rates provide the minimum and average sales tax rates in every state, and are updated monthly for any changes. TaxJar says an API outage is highly unlikely, but they never want their customers to worry that they may lose the ability to collect sales tax temporarily.
US Sales Tax calculation and filing tool TaxJar has added support for Australia's Goods and Services Tax (GST) through its SmartCalcs sales tax API.
TaxJar's SmartCalcs sales tax API is a modern, robust API built specifically for developers who want to outsource the pain of calculating sales tax. Features include accurate sourcing rules, shipping taxability, product taxability and built-in reporting. SmartCalcs has a simple setup and a 30-day free trial.
Australian GST is a broad tax of 10% imposed on the sale of most goods and services in Australia. Companies liable to collect GST generally add 10% to the price they charge for goods and services, and claim credits for the GST they pay to purchase goods and services for resale or otherwise used in their business.
US Sales Tax calculation and filing tool TaxJar is now integrated with payment service Stripe Relay.
Customers of Stripe Relay can now have all their order history synced daily with TaxJar, allowing state-by-state sales tax reports and electronic filing.
Stripe Relay provides mobile in-app "Buy" buttons that allow shoppers to quickly and easily make a purchase straight from their mobile devices. One example is making sales within Tweets.
US Sales Tax calculation and filing tool TaxJar has added a new return filing feature with later deadlines than normal.
"Expedited AutoFile" is $39.95 per filing and allows sellers who could not enroll by the January 6th deadline to AutoFile.
This new feature is available for filers in Florida, Pennsylvania and California.
Once enrolled in AutoFile, TaxJar will continue to file sales tax returns each month at the normal AutoFile rate of $19.95/month.
Until the new feature was added, TaxJar helped identify where sellers might have nexus by showing the states where Amazon has fulfillment centers.
Now by connecting to Amazon Seller Central, TaxJar determines which states actually ship orders and accurately shows where nexus has been created.
