Sales Tax

Recommended Posts

I've read through some older posts, but wondering if Square Space has made an recent changes to make it easier to calculate Sales Tax?  I live in New York and manually entering 2.500 zip codes is almost not an option.  What have others done to work around this?

The setup of tax rates has not changed.

If you need to charge accurate tax rates in every zip code then adding all rates manually is the only option. Some ecommerce platforms connect with services that automatically update sales tax information, but Squarespace isn't one of them.

One potential option that I've seen suggested on a few forums is to identify the most expensive locale in your nexus state and charge that rate to everyone in the state. If you submit ALL the taxes you collect then technically you should be in compliance, even though you may be collecting a little more than required. Note that this isn't tax advice; I'm not an accountant or lawyer so you may want to professional advice.

If neither of these options are attractive, you may want to look at another platform like Shopify.
