How to address US tax rates?

US sales tax is a state-based tax. Each state has its own sales tax policy and rate. In most states, local sales taxes are imposed in addition to the state sales tax. Therefore, you can have customers in the same state, and even the same city, but you might have to charge them different tax rates. On top of that, some products have special tax rates that need to be applied as well.

The table below is an example of retail sales tax rates for select US states:

State State base rate Local range Total range
California 6% 0,15% – 3% 7,25% – 10,25%
Florida 6% 0% – 2% 6% – 8%
New York 4% 0% – 4,87% 4% – 8,87%
Illinois 6,25% 0% – 4,75% 6,25% – 11%
Texas 6,25% 0,12% – 2% 6,37% – 8,25%

The tax rate is determined by where the customer is based, so it’s impossible to know what rate to charge if you don’t have their address. It is crucial that you

collect the billing address of all customers (at very least their state and ZIP code) – otherwise it’s impossible to determine the appropriate rate.
