Request for improved US tax classes
Posted 08 August 2012 - 03:50 PM
Many states in the US have regional taxes that get added on top of the base state tax. These regional tax percentages vary from location to location. As somebody who sells items into those regions, I need to collect those taxes.
Currently, IP.Nexus only allows me to charge tax on a state-by-state basis. I know I could charge people (state tax rate)+(average regional rate), but this is unacceptable and unfair to those who would be charged more in some cases, depending on where they live.
Two possible solutions I can think of:
1) Allow an admin to manually setup tax regions within each state.
2) Allow IP.Nexus to automatically connect to a database somewhere which lists all the available "nexus tax rates". I'm not an expert on these, but I believe there are both paid and free services which list these.

Let me know if you need a beta tester. This is a big deal for my community.

To my knowledge, New York, California, and Texas all have variable regional tax rates. Determining region from the shipping address is not necessarily straightforward. I don't know the specifics of when they apply; I assume it depends on where the seller is located.

Hmm, taxcloud sure does sound viable given that it has some certifications according to their site.

Could become REALLY important quickly if this current internet tax bill is snuck through.
