If those nightly ecommerce deposits include sales tax collected, you’ve got an accounting problem.

Fortunately, TaxJar provides a simple, automated solution to make sure you know how much you owe in sales tax. Avoid surprises at filing time, make sure youve got enough money to pay your sales tax bills.

TaxJar’s Xero integration is slick. Not only does TaxJar create bills in Xero for each jurisdiction where sales tax was collected, but they also create a liability account for each state in the chart of accounts. So we can monitor the total sales tax liability, even if the money is due to the state quarterly or annually.”

How it works

Automatic sales tax tabulation

TaxJar imports ecommerce order history, pulls out the sales tax collected, and determines how much you owe to each state, at what frequency.

Seamlessly links to your Xero account

Just click a button, log into your Xero account once, and TaxJar will take it from there, running regular updates to make sure your accounting information is accurate and up-to-date.

Improved accuracy of your general ledger

TaxJar creates new sales tax liability accounts for each state in which you collect and file. Each month, we’ll create new bills/invoices for the sales tax you’ve collected that you can export to Xero. Get that balance sheet and income statement corrected - with no additional work.
