TaxJar is a third-party tax calculation and reporting app that you can integrate with Spiffy Checkouts. It has more advanced tax reporting and filing capabilities that are well-suited for companies based in the United States. If you’re a company outside the United States, Taxes by Spiffy will be the best solution for you.
In this article, we will cover how you connect your TaxJar account to Spiffy, as well as a quick look at how you set Checkout Items and Subscription Products to be taxable.
You will need an active TaxJar, and your TaxJar Secure API Key on hand.
If you are logged into your TaxJar account, just head to https://app.taxjar.com/account#api-acces
If you haven’t used TaxJar’s API before, there will be an option to generate a secure API Key.
Once you have your TaxJar secure API key, we will head over to Spiffy. Just click on Settings > Integrations from the bottom left navigation.
