Ability Commerce has several methods of sales tax calculation built into its base package, but some states’ sales tax laws are complex enough that it’s impossible to correctly determine sales tax rates based on state or zipcode alone. For true destination-based sourcing and varying tax rates within a state, using AccurateTax as a third-party plug-in with Ability Commerce is the perfect answer.
AccurateTax seamlessly integrates with Ability Commerce’s checkout process to calculate the correct amount of sales tax on each taxable order, based on product classification, origin and destination addresses, and other variables. Ability Commerce users don’t need to manage the vast and ever-changing data as it pertains to addressing, geocoordinates, and tax rates. Instead, they can rely on the AccurateTax service and plug-in to do all of the hard work for them.
AccurateTax features a reliable web-based SaaS (software as a solution) core with backup and redundancy capabilities to prevent down-time. Our interface is simple to use and provides reporting capabilities to assist business owners when the time comes to complete sales tax returns and remit the tax funds due.
