This calculator returns sales tax rates based on geolocation, which is more accurate than rates based on ZIP codes, states or counties alone.

How to use this calculator

To determine the correct sales tax in the calculator above, enter your full address, city, state, and zip code. Our calculator will find the exact geolocation of that address and determine which tax jurisdictions it resides in and the corresponding tax rate. NOTE: You can enter only a zip code or a city, but then you run the risk of not getting the correct rate.

If you are trying to calculate how much sales tax should charged on a purchase, you can enter in the amount below the map and click on the calculate button to get the sales tax amount.

Stop looking up sales tax rates

Finding and calculating sales tax rates is only a small step toward sales tax compliance. In most cases it is necessary to file returns to each jurisdiction for which sales tax is collected. This process can be time consuming if done manually. However, you can save hours by automating the lookup rates and most likely it already works with your eCommerce, POS, or ERP system.
