Amazon Sellers Now Have Access to the Only Free U.S. Sales Tax Compliance Service
NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today TaxCloud, the Internet’s only free sales tax compliance service, announced that businesses that sell on Amazon can now connect their Selling on Amazon data with TaxCloud from within the Amazon Marketplace Appstore. This announcement comes just a month after the Supreme Court issued its opinion in South Dakota v. Wayfair which could result in many Amazon sellers clamoring for access to TaxCloud’s sales tax compliance service as soon as October 1, 2018.
TaxCloud provides a powerful sales tax compliance API, wrapped by an easy-to-use, self-service-oriented configuration and administration website. While the TaxCloud website empowers retailers of any size to get started collecting sales tax in any state (or all states) in minutes, the TaxCloud API delivers real-time and batch process sales tax calculations for any address in the U.S., as well as automated registration, filing & remittance services, audit response, and even indemnification to its clients—all at no cost for most retailers.
“In light of the recent Supreme Court ruling on sales tax collection, online sellers do not have much time to determine how they are going to comply with the new sales tax landscape,” said David Campbell, TaxCloud’s CEO. “Being featured in the Amazon Marketplace Appstore offers Amazon sellers the fastest and easiest way to connect to our free sales tax compliance service.”

Amazon Sellers electing to add the TaxCloud App to their Seller Central account will be able to effortlessly synchronize transactions in Seller Central to TaxCloud for fully-automated reporting and remittance.
