Use our calculator to find the rates you need

Using a zip code is not the most accurate way to determine a tax rate. Improve rate accuracy with the same technology that powers the Avalara AvaTax calculation engine.

Why can't I just use the ZIP code?

  • There are often multiple sales tax rates per ZIP code, county, and city.
  • ZIP codes often overlap, or become subsets of other ZIP codes, or represent no geographic region at all.
  • ZIP codes aren't stable. In any given year, the USPS makes numerous boundary changes to ZIP code areas

For the most accurate sales tax rate, use an exact street address.

Your sales tax rate

What do these rates mean?

  • The combined tax rate is the total sales tax of the jurisdiction for the address you submitted.

  • The jurisdiction breakdown shows the different tax rates that make up the combined rate.

  • While most taxable products are subject to the combined tax rate, some items are taxed differently at the state and local levels, so be sure to apply the correct taxes to your sale.

These are the current rates for the date and time you submitted the address, but may change at any time with new tax legislation.
