What’s the difference between TaxButler and software?
There are many great tools out there to help you do-it-yourself, but one common trap that online businesses make is not realizing that these are tools. Like any tool, you need to know how to use it, and have sufficient time to do the required work.
One common mistake businesses make is signing up for a sales tax software tool, failing to recognize the amount of time that is needed to do the work each month. Where software is a tool, we are the construction crew that handles everything for you.
Think of it this way … would you purchase Quickbooks (or Xero) and assume all of your bookeeping would be managed automatically? Of course not! That’s why many businesses hire someone who handles their books. The same analogy works with sales tax.
What differentiates you from other sales tax firms?
Quite a bit, but here’s what our clients tell us they appreciate the most about TaxButler:
“They didn’t try to scare me or force me to do anything one particular way”
“TaxButler receives all of my mail and paperwork from the states directly so I don’t need to deal with it”
“They are much more resonably priced than when I hired my accountant do it”
“They handle everything for me and don’t make me figure bits and pieces out myself”
Who isn’t a fit for TaxButler?
We’re a bit biased, but we think we’re the best option out there for E commerce businesses. But here are a few examples of companies that wouldn’t do well with TaxButler:
- You sell non-tangible products (ex. Software, Digital Products)
- Many of your sales happen off-line or at a retail location
- A large part of your business is selling to wholesalers
- Your business is not making at least $300k/yr in sales (DIY approach is better here)
