Online Sales Tax Integration

Complying with New Tax Laws in A Changing Age – Why Automation is Your Business’ Best Friend

In a post-South Dakota-vs-Wayfair world, eCommerce is experiencing changes left and right when it comes to how business owners and the states they do business in look at sales tax. As individual states begin implementing new laws that pertain to eCommerce, online merchants must respond by learning which laws pertain to them.   The next step in the process is to decide what programs online retailers must use to stay current on tax trends, laws, and regulations. It is likely that you need some type of third party for Magento sales tax integration. These programs collect sales tax online for you, so that you don’t have to wonder if you are putting your business at risk, as it pertains to online sales tax rules.   Many of the laws that are now being changed were originally put in place in the 1990s or before. At that time, eCommerce was a remote possibility, but nothing that required legislating. For a long while, online merchants were able to get away with flying under the radar in the states where their goods were sold, but not produced.

How Forix Can Help With Magento Sales Tax Integration

Merchants and small businesses were not doing anything wrong at this time; they were simply taking a natural advantage given to them by the current laws. Now, online sales make up at least 9% of US commerce. Regulations hadn’t kept up with technological advances, but that’s changing – and the process of that change can be quite confusing, especially when every state’s tax code is different.

Factors to Consider:

Here are a few important facts to consider when looking at online at how to collect sales tax online:
  • Do you have nexus? If you do not have enough sales, an employee, a brick and mortar location, or substantial inbound linking business in a state, it’s unlikely that you have created a sales tax nexus. Therefore, you don’t need to pay taxes in that state.
  • You could have nexus that you don’t realize you have. If you have business connections all of the map, or are frequently at trade shows or pop-ups, you could have sales nexus that you are not accounting for. This puts you at risk for penalty.
  • If you are not collecting sales tax in all of the states where you have a nexus, you could be fined or audited. In severe scenarios, you could lose your business.
  • Online sales tax rules are still changing. Some states are still changing and modifying their laws. Automation helps you stay on top of it.
  • Magento sales tax integration with programs like Avalara (a Forix partner) make collecting sales tax with Magento formats easy

On behalf of our business, I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the outstanding service and commitment your team provided during the redesign of our company website. When I began researching for a web design company, my efforts ceased after I received a call from Chris within minutes of my initial request for information. Chris made me feel confident and thoroughly explained the design and development process. There were times when we were not certain where to find the information we needed to make this a success. Chris offered valuable suggestions that really made the entire process much easier. It was because of this confidence that I knew the team at Forix was the best choice. I know there were several people involved in the design process, however I must also acknowledge Kristen who provided the professional support we needed. Kristen is a great asset to your team and I can't thank her enough for her patience and ability to get things done the way we needed. The support we received from start to finish was admirable. Because of your efforts we are in a better position to effectively market our services. You have put together a great team that makes customers feel respected and valued. Thank you for the outstanding work !!

My company began working with the Forix team in May 2018. So far we have been quite happy with the level of organization and effort they have shown when fixing issues we’ve come across as part of running an ecommerce site on the still relatively new, Magento 2.x platform. We are happy to not find ourselves constantly having to check on the status of a project because the team usually stays on top of the details and keeps in communication with us. I would certainly recommend Forix to any colleague looking for a web development team to help with their Magento website.

My website has brought many more customers to my business, all thanks to the Forix team.
