TaxJar launched a new service for online sellers that will file sales tax returns on their behalf and remit sales tax payments due in all states. The program works automatically, ensuring merchants their filings are completed on time.
Press release follows:
TaxJar, the leading sales tax automation software for eCommerce, today announced the launch of an enhanced filing engine that will automatically file sales tax returns and remit sales tax payments due, in all 50 states. Now, merchants, brands, and tax professionals using TaxJar’s AutoFile service can fully automate filing for the first time. In addition to significant time savings, TaxJar AutoFile now offers a guarantee, ensuring filings are completed accurately and on time.
“At our core, we’re a technology company. The level of automation we’ve built into our engine is our next step to innovating within the sales tax industry,” said Mark Faggiano, TaxJar’s founder and CEO. “With the launch of this modern, robust filing engine, our customers as well as anyone in eCommerce can focus more of their valuable time on their businesses, and less on sales tax compliance.”
With TaxJar AutoFile, customers complete a short, one-time enrollment process. Then TaxJar automatically remits an on-time sales tax return and enables the required payment of sales tax due to the state.
TaxJar guarantees all filings will be made on time. If a filing is late, the cost of the filing is free and TaxJar will pay for any resulting penalties and interest assessed by the state.
The cost of AutoFile is $19.95 per filing for customers with an active TaxJar subscription. Unlike other filing solutions in the industry, TaxJar receives no compensation from the states, and passes every penny of timely filing discounts (over twenty states offer discounts for just filing returns on time) on to customers. In many cases, these discounts end up paying for the cost for AutoFile, and then some.
“Everything works and syncs up seamlessly with the department of revenue to make our tax payments,” said Jim Winn of Kentucky Home Brands. “Automating that quarterly payment is the specific reason we pay for TaxJar.”
TaxJar is the leading technology solution empowering busy eCommerce sellers to manage sales tax. TaxJar integrates with major commerce and payment engines, such as Amazon, eBay, Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce, and other places merchants sell online. Sales are automatically imported and aggregated into TaxJar’s platform so merchants can view sales on a state and local jurisdictional level. More than 9,000 merchants trust TaxJar to aggregate hundreds of millions of transactions annually. To learn more, visit Taxjar.com/autofile
