As I am just starting my business, I was worried about the cost. I looked into doing the work myself but very quickly realized that Zip2Tax was doing a great deal more than I could ever do on my own. I figured that for the cost of the service, it was roughly 5 of my billing hours per month. There was no way I could do the same thing in a cost effective manner.
By subscribing ... I freed up a lot of time ... That is a huge benefit, and the database has filing information as well which saves a lot of time having to look up codes when paying the taxes... (Read More)- Robert, R&L Software
Cost was a real issue for our company, but this subscription has a great price point! We are impressed with the uptime and the implementation ease. After we bought a subscription to Zip2Tax, we received great service. The service is virtually worry free.- Zach, Fleapay.com
We are a small online retailer and we only need sales tax for one state. It doesn't make sense for us to spend a lot on sales and use tax services. We use Volusion as our store vendor and they don't have support for all the county and city tax, so we needed to do that manually. Without your service, this would be very difficult. The way your tables break out all the specific taxes is the feature I find the most useful. And, your support has been superb!- Doug, Focused Sales, Inc.
Thank you very much for the detailed info! Everyone has issues, how honestly they deal with them is the difference between the rookies and world class organizations. Your willingness to share this info gives us great confidence in our choice to work with Zip2Tax!- Steve
Your product is so easy to use and quick. We were surfing the internet which took lots of time and did not always provide the detail we needed and get from your product. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is fumbling on the internet for answers. We also benefit from the emails with new tax information and issues arising in that arena.- Kimberlee,
We are a reseller, so our taxable sales are a small percentage of our business. Your subscription saves lots of time calculating the CORRECT amount of tax to charge, and breakdown by state, local, etc., plus the tax on shipping charges has been very useful to us. Zip2Tax is a GREAT DEAL FOR THE PRICE especially when you factor what you would pay in penalties under a state tax audit!- Sandy
The biggest obstacle for our company, prior to buying the sales and use Tax Tables, was that we needed to replace another system that we were using. We had integrated address verification and sales tax calculation with our Intech ERP system.
After purchasing from Zip2Tax, we found you had a quality product and we liked that we could enter just the ZIP Code without city and state. We find benefit in the user-friendly screens, the rapid response time, and the accurate results. I recommend Zip2Tax for all of the features just mentioned plus less data entry for the users.- Jeanne, Duralee Fabrics, Inc.
We were worried about the cost and complication of buying sales tax data services, but Zip2Tax's Online Lookup took care of that for us. We use it standalone for invoicing and tax returns and we really like that it only takes 10 seconds to do a lookup.- Graham, Evandtec Inc.
