Did you know that how much you owe in sales tax can change based on what types of products you’re selling in what regions, and there are even nuanced changes to tax code from within the same Zip Code? There are hundreds of different category codes by product. 45 states have “Economic Nexus” laws (laws that require paying sales tax if you sell Ecommerce to that state).
TaxJar (recently acquired by Stripe) is on a mission to make sales tax compliance easier for merchants. Solving this sales tax problem across all different states, regions, and countries is a bit of a nightmare, to be honest.
Their tool is tracking how much revenue you’ve earned by region (or state) and will notify you as you get close to the revenue threshold that will force you to require registering with that state yourself. They have documentation on how to complete this registration yourself, or you can pay them $299 to get it done for you (having gone through this myself, I recommend paying a professional).
They can auto-file all of your remittances on your behalf (you can review ahead of time if you want), thus saving you about 5 hours per filing, which pretty much eliminates one headcount needed from your company, which is totally awesome.
They have an open API that is lightning fast for your customers to magically get the correct tax amount on the checkout page in approx. 28ms (basically instantly).
They handle calculating the right sales tax at checkout, compiling those reports, and even sending taxes to each entity as appropriate.
They are even able to calculate and adjust remittance as according to your refunds, showcasing refunded charges on filings (or future filings if the refund happened in a subsequent period).
If you aren’t sure how many states you need to be paying sales tax with, you can install the tool, start a free trial, and at least get a feel from their software on what liabilities you have, before deciding whether or not to use the tool.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
