The service provides rates charged for sales and use taxes by jurisdictions in North America. Available data include tax rates charged and the national and the state or provincial levels, along with applicable county and city rates and portions of shipping and handling balances that are subject to tax.
API methods support submission of a U.S. Zip Code or Canadian province abbreviation identifying the location of the transaction, either a physical store or the buyer's location for online sales. For U.S. transactions, returned data include the state abbreviation, county name, and city name matching the submitted Zip Code, as well as the general sales and use tax rates for that specific location and total tax due. For Canadian locations, the API returns the province abbreviation and name along with the overall sales tax rate and components for GST, PST, and HST. For all locations, returned data indicate any tax due on shipping and handling.
Of the many APIs we published this week, seventeen were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those seventeen, which included the Anime News Network Encyclopedia API. The Anime News Network holds a database of over 14,000 titles, from over 10,000 companies. The API allows developers to request general reports and detailed information about anime titles, for up to 50 requests at a single time.
If you sell products, you probably know the tax rate for your state. But what about for all the other states you might be selling in? The Tax Data Systems API has that figured out. Using their API, you can insert their look up system into your software to incorporate the answers into the calculations for your customer's invoice.
