One company says collecting sales tax is not onerous for online retailers

With Congress considering bills to extend the moratorium on online sales tax, esalestax.com can calculates the sales tax due in a way that is not a financial burden to retailers.

With Congress considering bills to extend the moratorium on online sales tax, esalestax.com offers a package that calculates the sales tax due and is not a financial burden to retailers. The company says its dial-up service will calculate in seconds any sales tax due in the 7,000 plus U.S. tax jurisdictions for as much as 12 cents per transaction. The cost drops as low as 8 cents when the level of transactions exceeds 10,000 per month. Esalestax is one of the programs being tested by the Streamline Sales Tax Project, a 29-state initiative to develop a unified sales tax code. North Carolina, Michigan, Wisconsin and Kansas are participating in a pilot project to test a unified tax code. As many as 39 other states are attending meetings and watching the project`s progress, says Shawn Fahey, vice president of business development for esalestax.com.
