Basic Edition Web Service

The Basic Edition Sales and Use Tax Rates Web Service provides access to live sales and use tax rates data using a US Zip Code or Canadian Province abbreviation. For the US you will receive the zip code, state abbreviation, county name, city name, as well as the general sales and use tax rates for the state, county, and city, as well as totals and whether or not shipping alone and shipping and handling together are taxable.  For Canada you will receive the Province abbreviation, Province name, the GST rate, the PST rate, the HST rate, the total sales tax rate, and whether shipping and handling are taxable.

The basic edition web service is our most popular database. Simply enter a Valid 5 digit US zip code and get the current sales and use tax information returned to you. The county/city information is based on the USPS preferred city name for that zip code. The data returned will include the following information:
