FAQ

What does TaxCloud cost?

TaxCloud’s Automated Compliance plan is free and includes sales tax calculations, filing, and remittance in all of the SSUTA member states.

If you need more control, you can switch to one TaxCloud’s Selective Compliance plans, which start as low as $9/mo.

Does the plugin support recurring payments?

Yes! Simple Sales Tax is fully compatible with the official WooCommerce Subscriptions extension.

What versions of WooCommerce and WordPress are supported?

Simple Sales Tax supports WooCommerce 3.0+ and WordPress 4.5+.

Does Simple Sales Tax work with marketplace plugins like Dokan?

Yes! As of version 6.2, Simple Sales Tax supports Dokan 2.9.11+, WCFM Marketplace 6.5.0+, and WC Vendors 1.5.8+. When a supported marketplace plugin is installed, Simple Sales Tax will calculate the tax for each seller’s shipment separately and sum the results to present a single tax total to the customer. Sellers can also set an appropriate Taxability Information Code (TIC) for each of their products through the seller dashboard so products that qualify for exemptions or reduced rates are taxed correctly.

Currently we only support the use case where the marketplace acts as the seller of record and collects sales tax on behalf of all sellers through a single TaxCloud account. We believe that this is the best way to handle sales tax compliance in the marketplace setting – especially for marketplaces based in the U.S. – but if you would like us to add support for more advanced use cases, please leave us a message at go@taxcloud.com.
