Spectrum Enterprise Tax
Remove the guesswork in tax jurisdiction assignments by identifying accurate local tax rates instantly
Tax boundaries and rates are constantly changing, and it’s hard to keep up.
Spectrum Enterprise Tax provides an essential, automated support solution for delivering current and geographically-based determinations. The solution helps your company determine the correct tax jurisdiction in which a given address is located as well as the current tax codes that apply.
Spectrum Enterprise Tax uses advanced geocoding, parcel point, and enhanced street address matching methods providing localized geographic precision. These advanced capabilities allow the solution to assign state, county, township, municipal, and other local tax information to an address.
Sales and use taxes will vary depending on location. State, county, town, and even special tax districts, such as library, emergency services, and school districts, can have their own specific taxes.
Accurate tax designations are determined by matching an address and identifying whether it is inside or outside a geographic taxing district and applying the tax appropriate to that jurisdiction.
Using the Precisely rate data, four types of tax can be returned:
Both a total rate for the selected tax type and the individual rates for each local jurisdiction are returned for each transaction.
GeoTAX integrates seamlessly into the Sovos Compliance and Vertex tax solutions.
“Because we’ve been able to build rooftop-level geocodes into the system, it always ensures that a single, accurate result is returned.”
Pawel Smolarkiewicz, VP, Product Management
