No uploading spreadsheets

Prepare and file client sales tax returns in minutes, not hours. TaxJar syncs up with your client's eCommerce accounts and automatically pulls the information it needs. You don't need to upload or download anything.

Manage your clients with one login & control billing

Invite each client to join with a single email address. We'll notify you when they've signed up and linked their e-commerce account(s).

TaxJar charges you directly for the service. Your clients never see the cost, allowing you to charge what you like. Increase your own profits or pass on the savings to your clients. It's entirely up to you.

Are your clients collecting enough sales tax?

See a comparison of what you your clients collected versus what they should have collected. If they are not collecting sales tax yet, we show the potential sales tax liability for each state.

County and city granularity in reports

No more manually breaking down sales tax collected by counties, cities or districts. We'll create return-ready state reports so you never have to touch a sales tax spreadsheet or tax table again.

Clients sell on multiple eCommerce channels?

No problem. TaxJar connects with the other channels you sell on, too. Your sales tax collected is then organized into state-specific reports for easy filing.

Automated sale tax filing

For an additional fee of $19.95 per filing per state, our AutoFile feature will file your client's state sales tax returns for you every month, quarter or year. Let us handle your sales tax filing and save you even more time.

Karen Brunson
Thank you TaxJar! I just finished filing California sales tax and it was a piece of cake because of the reports you provide for schedule A and schedule B. Wouldn't have wanted to do it without you!
Todd Ryan
TaxJar is one of the services I use that you’d have to wrestle away from me. It took over 2 hours to do my Florida quarterlies initially. With TaxJar, it’s about 10-15 minutes. Huge timesaver!
Patrice Noelle
The first year I had to do all this sales tax by county stuff, I almost quit selling. This year with Taxjar it was almost painless. I wish I had known about them right from the start!! Worth every penny to keep your sanity!!
Angela Carter Barton
I did the TaxJar trial early on in my business. VERY glad I did. Subscribed without a second thought. Worth its weight in gold.
Britni Ross
TaxJar saved me about 4-5 hours of boring, tedious, and most importantly, non-profitable work!
Phil Geissler
I just wanted to stop and say how much I appreciate TaxJar's transactions tab! The fact that I can wire several selling venues into one feed and see it all in one place and also have it downloadable as a csv file, it's awesome! Plus the ability to filter the results by date or selling venue or state! TaxJar Rocks!
Georgene Harkness
I’m a CPA and wouldn’t think of running my business without TaxJar. The reports you get from Amazon are almost worse than useless, but TJ takes the hard work out of it for you.
Cynthia Stine
I spend a lot less time on sales tax now thanks to TaxJar.
Terry Prine
I had tried FBA for about 4 months. I was doing really well but stopped due to the unknown factor: sales tax. I found out about TaxJar, and with the knowledge I gained in just a few minutes I will be able to get FBA going again. No one else was able to answer my questions.

Common Questions

Feel free to contact us if you can't find the answer to your question. We're happy to help you.

I've heard good things about TaxJar, how will it help me and my business?

TaxJar's automated reports eliminate the need for you to lookup sales and sales tax information by state, county, city, and local tax jurisdiction for your clients. We give the the exact data you need to be able to file their tax returns much faster than using Excel spreadsheets.

For many states we'll even file your sales tax returns on your behalf. Our reports are updated every day and downloadable in CSV format. You'll also receive email reminders when your customer's sales tax returns are due. Lastly, you'll be able to see what sales tax your clients should have collected using our detailed sales tax analysis feature.

Can TaxJar file sales tax returns automatically for my customers?

Yes. We can automatically file as many returns as you'd like for you in nearly all states with sales tax. AutoFile is an additional cost of $19.95 per filing per state.

If one of my clients is already on TaxJar, do they need to cancel their account?

No, simply email them an invitation using the same email address, and, when they accept, the billing will automatically transfer over to you at the next billing cycle.

Can TaxJar determine how much sales tax should have been collected?

We sure can! This feature can be very helpful if:

  1. You aren't sure if your clients ahve set up sales tax collection correctly.
  2. Your client has had sales before they started collecting sales tax.
  3. Your clients sell on multiple channels, but aren’t collecting sales tax in all of them.
  4. Your clients use Fulfillment By Amazon, but aren’t collecting sales tax in some of Amazon's warehouse states.

Do I get billed or do my clients? And how much?

You get a single bill for all clients under your account. This way, you can charge your clients in any way you see fit.

You will get billed based on the plan that applied to each client (view our pricing plans here.) Each client will fall under an appropriate plan based on their transaction volume. Your total bill will equal the combined monthly costs of the different plans your clients fall under.

When will I be billed?

You will be charged each month, starting 30 days after your first client's trial period begins. If you don't have clients using TaxJar, you will not have any monthly subscription fees, and your account will be free.
