Did you know that there are more than 11,000 tax jurisdictions in the United States? While there are a handful of states that don’t levy a sales tax, and there are a few states that have a state-wide tax, the majority of states have multiple, overlapping tax jurisdictions including county and city levels. Furthermore, there can be even smaller tax districts made for special purposes like regional transit, hospital zones and many, many others.
Do you know the rates and rules for every state you have nexus in? You don't have to. Let Zip2Tax help your business stay in compliance with complicated state and local tax laws.
Newly Available: Zip2Tax now provides sales tax and postal code data for the country of Canada. Canada has a Value Added Tax (VAT) system. In addition to the federal Goods and Services Tax (GST) collected by the Canada Revenue Agency, we provide information on which provinces and territories use the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST), which use a Provincial Sales Tax, which have a Retail Sales Tax (RST), and which have no additional retail taxes.
