Rate updates are worry-free

Stop wading through never-ending tax rate changes (or worrying about the ones you haven’t caught). Categorize your products once, and Shopify will handle any necessary updates thereafter.

Valuable information is delivered to you

You’ll be notified of significant changes in the tax world that impact your business, and receive guidance to take action when you need to.

This is 100 times better. Previously, to sort through all the data, I had created a custom spreadsheet and formulas to spit out the data that the state of Illinois needs. With this report, that's no longer necessary. I just pull up the Illinois Department of Revenue site in a new browser tab and copy the numbers. Takes 15 minutes max.
