Taxjar is very easy to use taxes can be complicated but it is easy with this application

Super-simple API integration to add tax handling to a web application

2017-12-13

Easy addition of tax handling to our web application.

Pros

It's a great comfort knowing we don't have to worry about the tax implications of transactions -- we just submit the data to TaxJar and they tell us how much to charge.

Cons

The API does not yet have a way to automate creation of new accounts (if you are building a framework using TaxJar for multiple clients this does add the additional step of having to require the client to create their own account).

Great product for collecting and reporting sales tax for any ecommerce site.

2017-12-05

Pros

Ready connections to popular shopping carts, CMS and accounting systems.

When there are no transactions to report to any nexus state it seems a little bit costly.

Trevor Fowkes

At our firm we suggest all of our clients use TaxJar for their sales tax.

2018-03-20

Pros

I like how easy TaxJar makes it for our clients to make sales tax payments and that they have interegrations to accounting software like Xero.

Cons

Even though I like that they have made an integration for Xero, I think that the integration could be cleaned up to avoid duplicate transactions.

It's become a life-saver for our small business

2018-04-30

Pros

It integrates with our Squarespace website and saves hours of time and confusion to automate the sales tax payments to our state.

Cons

Their SmartCalcs portion of the app seems great, but have yet to figure out how to integrate that with our Squarespace site.

Great customer service and execution

2018-04-11

Pros

They are making calculating sales simple and efficient for my website - whereas this could be a nightmare to do manually and not a good use of my time. Their customer service has been outstanding.

Cons

I've had no issues to date with the software - we launched in August and I have had not had any challenges to report.

2018-05-17

Relatively easy to use

2018-06-21

Pros

This site is easy to use and gathers data pretty accurately.

Cons

This is pricey for what I needed it for. I wanted it to calculate some Ebay things for me, but I ended up using a GoDaddy program that is about half the price of the lowest option on TaxJar.

TaxJar addresses a major pain point in my business and does it well.

2018-04-11

Pros

For the amount of data that is available, the layout doesn't feel overwhelming.

Cons

I think the cost for autofiling is a bit high, especially in the states which I file monthly. Perhaps a tiered pricing model?

Tax Jar has solved our sales tax problems. This is the perfect solution for ecommerce companies.

2017-12-05

It saves us so much time by filing returns or manually tracking sales tax rates.

Pros

Customer support always answers our questions quickly and accurately. The interface is user friendly.

Cons

The updates this year have solved any lacking areas we saw when we first started using Tax Jar. There are a couple of times Tax Jar has charged tax when it should have not, but the percent this has happened is less than 0.001% and the number of transactions we have seen this on has decreased each month.

Super Useful, But Overpriced

2017-06-07

Pros

It streamlines tax collection and puts all the information in one place, which makes it really easy for me to collect sales tax accurately in my new, small business.

Cons

If I had to do it once a year, I'd do it without TaxJar - but since I have to do it every 30 days, it helps to have the data in one place in spite of the cost.

TaxJar is the ONLY way to collect state sales tax for eCommerce!

2017-09-18

One of my lifeline go to products to run my eCommerce Internet sales business. It pulls in info from Amazon, eBay and PayPal to calculate which states I owe sales tax too. I was a life saver when I went compliant regarding my FBA sales tax. Thanks TaxJar!

Pros

They pull in the info needed and on a monthly basis I can see which states I have to make payment to. I easily log into the states websites and submit everything online.

Cons

While I haven't yet used autopay, where they would do my filing, I hesitate because my sales are not great. I wish the fee was based on how much or how little one sold. I would use in a New York minute if that were the case.

Great software for small business

2017-12-05

I would recommend this product to anyone using Shopify as their ecommerce platform but not if they are using Wix.com

Pros

This software took care of all of my bookkeeping worries. It integrates seamlessly with Shopify.

Cons

I recently switched to Wix.com as my ecommerce platform. I was disappointed to find that there was no TaxJar app to pair seamlessly with my site like when I was with Shopify. I'm hoping that they change that one day.

TaxJar is great. It really made sales taxes easier and manageable.

2017-12-05

Pros

The auto file feature is awesome for the headache States.

Cons

I wish it had better instructions on how to navigate the states websites. They are all a maze and every one is different, making it really challenging just to register to pay them sales tax.

Centralizes and Aggregates a Ton of Information

2018-05-15

Pros

Tax Jar helps me take 10,000 orders and pulls information like zipcodes 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 giftwrapping are taxable in states. I can't imagine running my small business without it.

Cons

The interface stinks - I frequently have to have 6 or 7 tabs open at once just to fill out one state's tax return.

Extremely Easy to Use

2017-12-05

Extreme time savings.

Pros

Saves me days of time by automating everything that has to do with sales tax.

Cons

I would love to see more educational tips and suggestions around the individual states and difficulty levels around filing manually. There are some states where it is almost impossible to do it yourself.
