Week in review – 06/17/13 – 06/23/13

This past week, I started looking at how to figure out the sales tax rate for a particular location.  If the Marketplace Fairness Act would have passed, it would have required every online store to track the tax rate for every municipality in America, and send sales tax revenue in to the appropriate offices.  My assumption was that the assorted departments of revenue would make sales tax rates available.  Alas, after a bit of research, it appears that few do and fewer make it consumable.

I did find a few resources though:

The Sales Tax Clearinghouse

Streamlined Sales Tax Governing Board, Inc.

TaxCloud [Provider of free tax rate info]

I am not sure exactly what the right path is but I think TaxCloud might be a good place to look.  I just need to do a little experimentation.


Useful and/or interesting stuff I found this week:
