Installing and Configuring the TaxJar Sales Tax Automation Module
page last edited on 13 July 2018
To install the TaxJar module follow the general instructions from Installing addons from the Marketplace.
Once installed and enabled proceed to the module settings page:
You’ll see a screen of the kind:
Here you need to configure the following settings:
- API Token : Copy and paste your TaxJar API token into X-Cart.
- Enable tax calculation : Toggle this setting on if you need taxes to be calculated at checkout in accordance with the store nexus.
- Enable tax reporting : Toggle this setting on if you need the X-Cart order and refund transactions to be imported into TaxJar automatically. Orders are imported immediately after they’re paid and delivered in a complete status, i.e. the orders are in a “Paid” payment status and “Shipped” or “Delivered” fulfillment status.
- Do not create order in case of tax calculation error : Toggle this setting on to stop order creation in case if the tax calculation fails. (The setting is available only if Enable tax calculation is enabled.)
- Automatically calculate taxes for : Choose the states the auto taxes calculation will be available for (taxes will be calculated only for the shipping addresses that match the store nexus).
- Debug mode : Toggle this setting on to include debug information into the tax_jar log file.
Click Submit to make the settings active.
When TaxJar is connected proceed to the Store setup-> Taxes section to configure the module further. Here you can set up your nexus addresses in TaxJar:
Click the Manage your nexus addresses link. You will be redirected to TaxJar where you can add state with nexus your store taxes will be automatically calculated and reported for in your TaxJar account.
Also you can assign TaxJar category tax codes to product tax classes to support product exemptions. For this purpose open the Tax classes tab of the Store setup -> Taxes section, create your product tax classes (if they are not created as yet) and assign TaxJar category codes to your product tax classes:
