Sales tax services

Making a sale is supposed to be one of the fun parts of running a business. But complying with sales tax laws is no fun at all. Calculating sales-and-use taxes on product categories, keeping up with tax rates, and paying state sales tax can be time-consuming — and costly, if you make a mistake.

Paychex helps bring back the satisfaction and remove the risk from selling your products and services with our easy-to-use sales tax payment service.

  • Time savings and risk reduction

    We'll calculate, file, and pay your sales taxes to the appropriate agencies.

  • Compatible with your existing solutions

    Our integration with leading e-commerce software saves you time and effort.

  • Easy install and maintenance

    All that’s required is an internet connection and, in some instances, a small plug-in.
