TaxJar, an online service that manages sales tax filing for ecommerce merchants, has announced the availability of its service to all Square sellers. More business owners can now easily eliminate the complexity and time involved in filing state and local sales tax by linking their TaxJar and Square accounts.
“Preparing and managing sales tax is a necessity for businesses of all sizes,” said Mark Faggiano, CEO of TaxJar. “Now, TaxJar can free Square sellers from the burden of sales tax compliance for yet another major sales channel, while saving them valuable time.”
Through the integration, Square sellers can connect their sales data with TaxJar to automate tasks associated with remittance to state and local jurisdictions. TaxJar reports each state that requires a sales tax responsibility, accurately calculates how much tax was collected by a local jurisdiction, and tracks various state filing deadlines. Customers from both Square and TaxJar can stay organized with this integration and simplify the process of multi-channel sales tax compliance and filing. Combining Square sales data with TaxJar provides sellers with easy access to automated sales tax information across all of their channels in a single report and shows a more comprehensive view of their business.
“It used to take me several hours to file a tax return for one state because of all the manual calculations and gathering information from every channel. As sales tax continues to get more complicated and I expand channels, integrations with a platform like Square becomes even more important for my business,” said Jenifer Kudulis, owner of online retailer kudu-lah. “Square sales data integrated with my other channels in TaxJar saves me from the administrative burden that I don’t have the time or skill to tackle efficiently.”
TaxJar joins QuickBooks, Xero and other solutions that have integrated with Square to help their merchants simplify operations and save time. Pricing for TaxJar starts as low as $9.95 per month for small businesses doing less than 1,000 transactions per month. TaxJar currently offers a 30-day free trial to any new user.
