It’s been an exciting week at TaxJar! Yesterday we announced that TaxJar surpassed 5k customers, then today we watched from the audience at Magento Imagine as Mark Lavelle, Magento’s CEO, announced TaxJar as Magento’s Premier Partner for sales tax. These last few days have definitely validated TaxJar as the best solution for eCommerce sales tax.
But that’s more than enough about us…
What does TaxJar’s partnership with Magento mean for YOU?
As Magento’s Premier Partner for sales tax, TaxJar and Magento are working together to provide all Magento users access to free sales tax calculations, and simplified sales tax reporting and filing.
That’s right, Magento’s merchants are busy building the businesses that change the world and don’t have time for worrying about whether they should charge their California customers sales tax on shipping, deciphering the insanely complicated New York clothing sales tax rates, or figuring out European VAT. You’re busy running your business. TaxJar will take care of the sales tax calculations part. For free.
And once you (or your customers) have used TaxJar for sales tax calculations you can also subscribe to TaxJar’s reporting feature. We’ll take all that sales tax you’ve collected and turn it into return-ready reports for you to send to your state. Or we’ll even AutoFile your sales tax returns for you to take sales tax completely off your plate.
We’re currently working closely with Magento to make the process of providing sales tax calculations for Magento’s over $50 billion in annual transactions as seamless as possible for merchants. In the meantime, check out the current TaxJar Magento extension and read up on our Magento sales tax extension guide.
Stay tuned for free sales tax calculations for both Magento 1 and Magento 2 coming this summer! We’ll be keeping the #realmagento community updated as we finalize plans with the Magento team.
Magento community, we look forward to powering your sales tax calculations. If you have questions or comments, contact us. We’re here to take sales tax worries off your plate so you can get back to doing what you do best – running your Magento business.
