OpenCart Sales Tax
Simplify your OpenCart sales tax compliance efforts and save hours every month.
If you’ve been trying to meet your state’s sales tax requirements with the built-in solutions from OpenCart, you may be having trouble. Many states have more than one tax rate, however – taxes may be defined by a county, a city,
a shopping mall, a transit authority, and more. This makes managing these rates with the geozones functionality included with the OpenCart platform problematic for online retailers.
AccurateTax.com’s TaxTools products give OpenCart users the ability to accurately calculate sales tax on their sites no matter how complicated their states’ laws.
We currently offer OpenCart modules for our Advanced and Enterprise sales tax software that installs and is used in place of your existing sales tax module. These modules call out to the AccurateTax.com servers at appropriate places during the customer’s checkout process, to validate and scrub the shipping address, and to return accurate sales tax rate(s), which are then used to calculate the amount of sales tax that the customer is charged.
TaxTools for OpenCart 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.
We are a Streamlined Sales Tax Certified Solution Provider, offering full compliance with SST. When you use a Certified Solution Provider, you receive benefits such as free use of our software, first-line defense support in case of an audit, and the peace of mind that comes with knowing your software provider is SST-certified for accuracy.
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.
