Seattle, WA (PRWEB) March 27, 2013
TaxCloud, the popular free sales tax management service for online retailers, today announced a partnership with Braintree, the fastest-growing payments platform for online and mobile commerce. Braintree retailers can now use TaxCloud to handle all their sales tax needs.
The announcement comes on the heels of Friday’s Senate vote of overwhelming support for the Marketplace Fairness Act, which would allow states to require online retailers to collect sales tax. With this legislation gaining momentum in Congress, more and more business owners are looking for an easy-to-use sales tax management service. TaxCloud, which is free for retailers, offers sales tax calculation and collection, detailed reports, exemption certificate management, preparation and filing of sales tax returns, and more.
“Braintree’s goal is to make it easy for developers and start-ups to accept payments online and on mobile devices,” said James Hyde, SVP of Sales at Braintree. “Partnering with TaxCloud gives our merchants an easy way to integrate the TaxCloud sales tax solution and provides them with an excellent tool for calculating US sales taxes.”
“We’re excited to make it easy for Braintree retailers to collect and manage sales tax, at absolutely no cost,” said R. David L. Campbell, CEO and co-founder of FedTax, the home of TaxCloud. “Braintree’s emphasis on user-friendly platforms and elegant features for developers make it a natural fit for TaxCloud. We look forward to providing Braintree retailers with the peace of mind that comes with knowing they don’t need to worry about sales tax—we’ll handle it for them.”
FedTax, the home of TaxCloud, was founded in Seattle in 2008 to offer online businesses a free and easy way to calculate and collect sales tax. Today over 2500 retailers use TaxCloud to manage sales tax.
FedTax is headquartered in Seattle and has offices in Connecticut and Kansas.
