Ability Commerce Sales Tax
Simplify your Ability Commerce sales tax compliance efforts and save hours every month.
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 ZIP Code 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.
TaxTools for Ability Commerce Sales Tax Features
Accurate Tax Rates
TaxTools geolocates every shipment, pinpointing the location in order to provide the exact sales tax rate for each order. The tax rate is determined by the specific address down to the rooftop level.
Detailed reports provide the information you need to easily complete sales tax returns yourself. Jurisdiction-level reporting provides the breakdown necessary for many states. If you prefer, we offer sales tax filing services as well, which relieve you of the burden of completing sales tax returns yourself.
A correct address is necessary for determining the proper sales tax rate. That’s why we validate and standardize every shipping address before sales tax is calculated. In addition to supporting sales tax, validated addresses help prevent delivery errors and address correction fees charged by many carriers, saving you even more money.

Sales Tax Holidays
Automatically handle any sales tax holidays offered by your state. If your state offers back-to-school, weather preparedness, or second-amendment sales tax holidays, AccurateTax handles these scenarios on the appropriate dates.
Depending on the state, you may sell goods that are taxed differently from regular products, such as food that has a lower rate, or clothing that is only taxable when it is over a certain amount. AccurateTax fully supports these product-specific taxes.
