Getting started with TaxJar Sales Tax Automation
page last edited on 17 July 2018
To enable TaxJar Sales Tax Automation at your X-Cart store, follow the steps below:
Get an account with TaxJar to get an API token. You will need to enter it on the ”TaxJar Sales Tax Automation” module settings page in your X-Cart store.
Configure your company settings and tax profile in TaxJar.
You can get started by clicking ‘Account’ on the navigation bar:
- Specify your company details in the Business Profile section. Keeping business profile up to date is important as TaxJar will use your address to determine tax rules in some cases.
- Add states with nexus in the State Settings section (where your company needs to calculate sales and use tax due to “substantial physical presence” in a taxing jurisdiction)
Enable TaxJar Sales Tax Automation in your X-Cart store:
- Make sure the TaxJar Sales Tax Automation module is installed and enabled.
- Configure the module (See Configuring the TaxJar Sales Tax Automation Module).
