Saved us from hiring additional staff

What do you like best?

They keep track of when returns are due, the various log in credentials and account numbers.

What do you dislike?

We've had some communication disconnects when it comes to them receiving agency notices. It's not as simple as just forwarding them a copy of the notice and they handle it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pay careful attention to the returns filing calendar when you set it up. Typos can end up causing you more work down the road.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were at the point where we had to hire an additional person to handle just the tax return filing. Adding this service paid for itself the very first year by alleviating that need for additional staff.

Significantly reduced time spent on state sales tax returns

What do you like best?

Significantly reduced time spent on state sales tax returns, as I used to have to add every single jurisdiction I was reporting for on the online return. Doing the return manually was also incredibly stressful as the system timed out often!

What do you dislike?

Ability to easily override individual jurisdictions on an invoice

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Automating the tax filing process for states in which we have nexus
