December is the last month of the last quarter of 2017. There are only two states with changes to report. This is typical for this time of year…..waiting for the many changes expected in January of the new year.

Ever get this annoying message when trying to lookup a tax rate by ZIP?
That is because you entered a ZIP code that is no longer in service with the USPS. Yes, the USPS does delete ZIP codes when they consolidate regions. Zip2Tax will keep our ZIP database up-to-date to assist you.
