TaxCloud is now available within GunBroker.com to calculate and record state taxes. Information on what TaxCloud can do for your business and Frequently Asked Questions can be found on the TaxCloud website.
To get started you need to sign up for a TaxCloud account and have a production ready API Key and API ID. These can be found when you log into your TaxCloud account and navigate to settings (on the left) and then selecting Stores & Websites. Your API ID and API Key can be found in your store.
If you do not have a TaxCloud account set up you can sign up for one at TaxCloud.com. TaxCloud does require a capture to be performed before promoting your account to a production account. A test capture can be performed with the GunBroker.com sandbox website (https://www.sandbox.gunbroker.com). After you perform your test capture it is recommended that you delete your TaxCloud API information in sandbox and only use your account for production listings.
Taxes will be calculated at checkout based on the ship to address. Once payment has been marked received the taxes will be captured in TaxCloud. If an order is canceled the taxes will be voided in TaxCloud. Orders must be marked as Payment Received or Canceled within GunBroker.com in order for tax processing to occur correctly within TaxCloud.

Click “Verify and Save” and your GunBroker.com account will call out to TaxCloud for all listings that require taxes.
**Note Listings will no longer ask for tax rates for states as all taxes will be calculated in TaxCloud. Choices for collecting taxes will be “Yes I collect taxes” and “No I do not collect taxes.”
