TaxJar Helps Shopify Merchants Keep Lid on Sales Taxes
By Ina Steiner
TaxJar announced it has integrated with ecommerce platform Shopify. TaxJar, which launched in June, helps sellers who collect sales tax comply with tax regulations. The tool promises small business they can easily view when their next sales tax return is due and how much they've collected during the current sales tax period, and also offers help with the challenge of local sales-tax reporting.
TaxJar already works for merchants using Amazon and PayPal, and merchants can now add their Shopify accounts to TaxJar to aggregate sales and tax data and simplify their sales tax reporting.
TaxJar CEO Mark Faggiano told EcommerceBytes they chose to integrate with Shopify next because customers asked for it. "We're learning from our customers how important multi-channel is becoming to their business." He said Shopify is also a nice fit in terms of TaxJar's target customer.
Shopify has more than 60,000 active ecommerce stores. Sellers can find TaxJar in the Shopify app store, and pricing starts at $9.95 per month for small businesses doing less than 1,000 transactions per month. There is a 30-day free trial for new users.
Shopify is the third channel that TaxJar users can connect to for sales-tax compliance features, and Faggiano said other channels are likely to follow.
