Does TaxJar collect sales tax for me?

TaxJar helps you ensure you're collecting the proper amount of sales tax on your orders by offering Reporting and Calculation services.

  • TaxJar does not collect and hold the sales tax for you (for example, in a special holding or escrow account).
  • You would be responsible for keeping the taxes you collect separate from your sales totals.

If you sell on WooCommerce, Magento, BigCommerce, Ecwid, NetSuite, or you've built a custom integration, the TaxJar API will automatically calculate the sales tax you should collect for states you've enabled as nexus states in your State Settings. 

Please note, our API-powered integrations are available to our TaxJar Professional customers. If you have any questions, please contact us at

Here are some additional resources if you're selling via these integrations:

Our direct integrations have built-in sales tax collection functionality that requires you to enable and configure sales tax calculation settings within their accounts. We have some tips below to help you make sure you're collecting the proper amount of sales tax on your orders:
