How to integrate TaxJar with Spree
Taxjar maintains the Taxjar Ruby API Wrapper – a Ruby interface to the TaxJar Sales Tax API. You can use the API to access TaxJar API endpoints, which can get information on sales tax rates, categories, or upload transactions.
You can also use a Spree extension for TaxJar managing setting of Taxjar Api key, showing sales tax while checkout and creating transactions on Taxjar when order is created, updated (managing refunds), and canceled. In order to integrate the extension, follow the steps in README.
Taxes are a complicated matter but tools like TaxJar make them much easier. You need to provide address and line_item data through API call and it calculates taxes for you! Thanks to Spree’s flexibility and it’s TaxJar extension, applications based on Spree can be integrated with Taxjar easily. – Grzegorz Stochel, Ruby on Rails developer, Spark Solutions
