TaxJar Provides Auto Filing for Sales Tax Obligations


TaxJar logoTaxJar 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.”

  1. One might be playing with a short deck of cards if they would trust anyone or anything except themselves or accountant to file any type of income tax with any state.

    That is what I pay our accountant to do. When they screw up they pay. This place will probably let you whistle in the wind.

    1. Hi “Who Really Cares”,

      Jennifer Dunn from TaxJar here. This is a common question, but I can point you to our filing guarantee: https://www.taxjar.com/guarantees/

      It says:

      “Filing Guarantee

      If you are a customer of TaxJar’s AutoFile service, and TaxJar does not submit your sales tax filing on time, TaxJar will guarantee to:

      Cover or reimburse the cost of your filing
      Pay any penalties or interest due to the state as a result of that late filing”

      I hope that helps ally your concerns!
