Zip2Tax is proud to announce the release of a desktop application that allows subscribers to look up sales and use tax rates from their computer’s desktop.
This lightweight application is easy to download and install, and it won’t bog down your operating system, so you can leave it open in the background without interrupting your workflow.
Just input any U.S. ZIP code and click “Get Rate” for the total tax rate for that city. If you’d like to see the tax rate breakout, just click “Show Details” and the widget will expand to provide you with full information including use tax.
The “Show Details” window allows you to calculate the sales and/or use tax on any dollar amount. It shows you the tax breakout, including which portion goes to the state, the county, the city, and any special districts. It also shows you any special rules, such as whether shipping charges are taxable and more.
Try out the Zip2Tax desktop widget today. All you need is a computer with an internet connection. It’s free to download, but you’ll need an Online Lookup subscription to make it work.
Please send us feedback about this new desktop widget so we will know if it works equally well across all operating systems. Also, let us know if there is any other functionality that would make it work even better for you and we’ll try to include that when we update to version 2.0.
Thanks for growing with us!
