The Custom Tax Rate feature allows you to set accurate tax rates for domestic and international shipments. Tax rates are becoming increasingly complex. In some states, the tax rate even varies from county to county! With Advanced Shipping Manager, you have the ability to set different tax rates on the county, state and country levels.
If you find yourself doing an increasing amount of international business, you will want to check out the Real-Time Duties and Taxes feature. Your customers will receive all applicable duties and taxes in real-time. This will help prevent surprise charges and unhappy customers.
If you would rather not have to spend time keeping up on a multitude of tax rates, you may be interested in AvaTax By Avalara. AvaTax works seamlessly with the Advanced Shipping Manager to provide E-Commerce Stores with accurate, real-time tax rates.
