Due to recent court court rulings involving the sales of goods across state lines (The Supreme Court ruling of South Dakota v Wayfair, granting the state authority to impose sales tax obligations on out-of-state transactions), the taxation requirements of online sales have significantly changed. UltraCart provides integrations and tools to help meet these new tax guidelines.
The quickest and easiest way to collect sales tax for U.S. merchants is to allow UltraCart to manage tax collection. UltraCart managed is easy to set up, has no additional fees. UltraCart utilizes the Avalara tax tables to provide basic sales tax data for sales within United States.
Self managed sales tax collection allows merchants to configure every level of sales tax collection for both domestic and international sales. For self managed, you must supply the tax rate for the state.
