In this webcast, Wes Garlock, Shuup’s Head of Sales, discusses the TaxJar integration as it relates to e-commerce tax management. TaxJar is an easy way to streamline the tax management process. Wes speaks to why marketplaces need to manage their taxes, how these U.S. tax laws came about by the South Dakota v. Wayfair case, and how TaxJar makes the marketplace more efficient.

What is TaxJar?

According to TaxJar’s website, TaxJar is, “a cloud-based sales tax compliance platform that delivers accuracy, performance, and reliability through the automation of sales tax calculations, reporting, and filing.”​ Big-box e-commerce marketplaces such as Amazon, Etsy, and E-bay use TaxJar to manage their U.S. taxes. Shuup’s intended use for TaxJar is as an integration. Shuup recommends using the TaxJar integration for several reasons. Wes speaks to many of the benefits that TaxJar offers, but also notes how much time it could save on the developer’s side of customizations with Shuup.

Why do we need Tax Management?

On June 21, 2018, the United States Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in the South Dakota v. Wayfair case that states could mandate that businesses without a physical presence in a state with more than 200 transactions or $100,000 in-state sales collect and remit sales taxes on transactions in the state. This overturned the Quill v. North Dakota decision in 1967.

Wes notes a few exceptions to this ruling such as when the marketplace is not a MoR or when state-by-state laws differ otherwise. For more information, Wes urges individuals to seek out financial and legal advice from the professionals.
