Of the many APIs we published this week, seven were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those seven, which included the TaxCloud.js API. Put simply, TaxCloud automates sales tax returns for small businesses. Through the use of the API, developers receive the functionality with zero impact on their existing cart system and no new data elements. None of these data elements are ever stored to respect customer privacy. Currently TaxCloud works with 29 states accurately calculating the tax through origin, destination, and class of goods.

The service allows users to preserve image quality percentage, aspect ratio, and can prevent enlargement. The API eliminates the need to manually resize images and users need not wait for images to load.
