We're happy to announce a new feature now available on your Highwire store: Automatic tax calculations for US based-stores!
With increased requirements for city, state and county taxes, this new feature takes all the headaches out of configuring your tax preferences.
How do I get it?
If you're a new user, it's automatically enabled on your account. If you're an existing customer, you can enable this feature by visiting the US Regions & Taxes section and clicking the "I want to automatically calculate taxes." link.
Once this feature is enabled, you can manually add regions your store has a tax presence.
What states & regions should I tax?
Federal requirements state you should charge taxes on any state your business has a physical presence. Please consult a tax professional for further information.
Can I modify the tax rate?
If you are using the automatic zip-based tax feature, rates can not be modified. You can disable this feature and manually specify the taxes if you wish.
