App of the Month: TaxJar Reports
Posted Jul 25, 2016 by Jeff Brandimarte, Ecwid Team

We regularly feature handy, interesting apps from the Ecwid App Market on our blog to help you find something to complement or supplement Ecwid’s e-commerce features.

TaxJar

Two months we announced that we were making sales tax calculations for Ecwid users simpler by introducing automated sales tax calculations with TaxJar SmartCalcs.

We also promised to take sales tax simplification even farther. And that day has arrived! We’re happy to announce that TaxJar does more than just sales tax calculation. In fact, it’s now an app in the Ecwid App Market and our newest App of the Month.

And just in time, too, because July is what is known as a “sales tax perfect storm.” Nearly every online seller will have a sales tax deadline this month. You already knew that TaxJar SmartCalcs helped you collect the right amount of sales tax, but we’re happy to say that TaxJar also helps you finish the job by reporting how much sales tax you’ve collected and even AutoFiling your sales tax for you with their TaxJar Reports feature.

Collecting the right amount of sales tax can be tricky, but handling sales tax after you’ve collected it is one of the most complicated administrative tasks every online seller faces. Between figuring out how much sales tax you collected in each state and local jurisdiction, keeping up with every state’s rules and due dates, and finding time to file, sales tax is a time-consuming hassle. And it isn’t even profitable!

TaxJar Reports allows you to replace the time you once spent reporting and filing sales tax with activities that will actually boost your bottom line.

Why should I use this?

TaxJar Reports easily and instantly integrates with all the carts and marketplaces you sell on  including Ecwid. From there, it pulls in all of your sales tax collected and turns it into filing-ready reports for every U.S. state. No more poring over tax tables or looking up zip codes!

TaxJar Reports is especially useful for online sellers who collect sales tax in multiple states or sell on multiple channels. The average multi-channel TaxJar user saves 5 hours per filing period on sales tax filings.

To save you even more time, TaxJar will even AutoFile your sales tax returns for you. Just enter your information once, and you never have to worry about a missed due date (and penalty from the state) ever again!

TaxJar also teaches you all about sales tax with free state-specific sales tax guides, channel-specific sales tax guides, and hundreds of blog posts and videos.

If sales tax is taking up too much of your time (and causing you too many migraines), let TaxJar Reports take sales tax reporting and filing off your plate.

Combine TaxJar SmartCalcs automatic sales tax calculations for Ecwid with TaxJar Reports for end-to-end sales tax compliance. You’ll never have to worry that you’re collecting the wrong amount of sales tax or making a filing mistake.

What if I collected the wrong amount of sales tax?
