Default TaxJar for v4

With what is going to be a huge change in the landscape for all of us US based stores, is there any chance of a TaxJar module for v4? I have been doing some preliminary research today, and it would appear that TaxJar offers a nearly if not totally identical service to Avalara's Avatax. However, while TaxJar is up front and open about their pricing, Avalara completely hides all pricing which is probably for good reason. If their pricing was better, they would list it.

What are everyone's thoughts and plans for sales tax compliance in the near future? What a way to ruin a weekend...

Well this is still not 100% but most likely it will be approved and forced into a law. It still need to pass Congress.

As for module - I had one for XC5 then it turns out QT themselves were working on one and released it for free. They get kick back from every subscription signup so they can afford free module.

So now unless it will be custom coded module specifically for you I don't think anyone will code one. You will have to wait on QT to release TaxJar module for XC4 and hope it will be free.

When I was working on the TaxJar module (and actually I did use it and worked great) this is the same observation I had about pricing and that's why I choose them. Straight forward pricing model, open and without any surprises. Also as far as I know - cost is way less than Avalara.

Thanks for the input Steve, I kinda figured you would be the first with a response. As usual, it's helpful and insightful, so thanks!!

I agree that it will probably be approved and forced into law, which was kind of the purpose of starting this discussion. Maybe bringing attention to it will push QT to work on a module for v4 (wishful thinking).
