Ebizio Checkout: Excise Tax Manager

Excise Tax Manager

Ebizio has developed a seamless app that allows store owners to assign excise tax rates to different groups of products and geographic zones.

The Excise Tax App for BigCommerce is a flexible application that enables merchants to charge excise tax based on the order shipping address. Businesses in heavily regulated and taxed industries, such as vape products, alcohol, and firearms, can collect accurate, line-itemed taxes for specific products and groups of products.

Don’t risk getting hit with hefty penalties and paying more down the road. Save time, effort, and money by implementing the Excise Tax Manager app on your BigCommerce site.

Excise Tax Manager Features

The Excise Tax App for BigCommerce provides merchants with an easy way to configure the appropriate excise taxes for their storefront products. Taxes can be applied to individual products or groups of products and calculated with pinpoint accuracy based on defined geographic zones.

Compatibility with other BigCommerce Apps

If your store has apps that specifically customize, or replace, the BigCommerce Checkout process, we’ll need to consult with you and your store before installing the excise tax manager.

Compatibility and Support

Our solution is compatible with most other BigCommerce apps, including (most importantly) apps like Avalara and TaxJar that merchants may have configured for complex Sales Tax calculations.

Works with BigCommerce Payment Methods

Our solution is compatible with all BC payment methods, with one simple caveat. In order to calculate a destination based tax, we need to know the destination!

In-App Support

In-App support via Zendesk will be included in the monthly fee. Additionally, extensive documentation and FAQs will be made available to all Excise Tax Manager customers.

Applications of Excise Tax Manager

Let’s take, for example, an online tire retailer that must collect an excise tax, or “tire tax,” on tires sold to its nationwide customers. These may include environmental fees, tire disposal fees, or other taxes mandated by the federal, state, or municipal government.

With the Excise Tax Manager, the tire merchant can create geographic zones based on individual zip codes and zip code ranges for each destination requiring a unique excise tax or additional fee. The app also enables merchants to create multiple zones to accommodate different product requirements.

Our developers build apps specifically designed for online businesses that sell regulated products. The Excise Tax Manager can be leveraged to solve for many other scenarios that don’t currently have a solution on the BigCommerce platform. Contact our team to discuss your unique specifications.
