Available Tax Plugins
WooCommerce Tax Plugins
Managing tax on e-commerce platforms is quite technical. Each zone has a different tax rate and some places have a minimum threshold for taxation. When tax is not managed properly, it may result in double taxation or non-compliance which can cause a severe blow to the business. Configuring tax mechanically on WooCommerce is a hectic task that one can find difficulty in without prior tax knowledge. As most of the online stores do not have a tax ecosystem or internal auditors, therefore, tax managing is sourced out to other third-party service providers. As of now digital goods also fall within the taxable category in the US (some states) and EU countries, therefore these plugins help calculate real-time tax on each product based on the location of the buyer. On WooCommerce there are multiple service providers that give their tax plugins and give services by extension integration to the WooCommerce website.

There are 6 WooCommerce tax plugins available at the extensions store. These plugins deduct taxes according to the local tax laws of the buyer’s destination addresses.
