Disclaimer: error insurance and identification

At Kintsugi, we strive to provide accurate and reliable sales tax compliance automation services. However, we acknowledge that errors can occur.

Error Insurance Coverage: Our error insurance covers any identification and correction of errors in our services, up to the total cost paid for the services provided.
This means that in the event of an error, our liability is limited to the amount you have paid for the specific service where the error occurred.

Limitations of Liability:

  • Our liability for any error is strictly limited to the amount you paid for our services.
  • We do not cover any indirect, incidental, or consequential damages resulting from errors in our services.

Outperformed this month? TaxJar might sting you for that..

TaxJar’s monthly pricing seems reasonable until you realize that you’ll have a order based fee added on top. And if you don’t choose the right tier for your businesses’ order volume, be prepared to be slugged an extra "flex-fee" on top. Want to use their API as well? Each call will count towards your order volume as well. Don’t be penalized for your business outperforming! All Kintsugi plans are flat priced no matter how many orders or API calls your business does in a filing period.

Frequently Asked Questions

Take a look at what our customers asked us when making their own buying decisions.

I use another provider, what will the process of switching to Kintsugi look like??

Kintsugi makes that switch seamless, no matter who you’re currently using. You can even try out our Starter Tier for free (no credit card required) and connect your data before scheduling a time to chat with us. Poke around and see for yourself!

I don’t know if I owe back taxes. Can Kintsugi help me get current?

Yes! Just let us know and we’ll sort it out for you. When you’re ready, we can remit those on your behalf and get you current. And to keep you from incurring any further penalties, we’ll store and maintain all your Exemption Certificates and Voluntary Disclosure Agreements (VDAs) for you. No need to worry!

How does Kintsugi stay so affordable?

Kintsugi is powered by Kintsugi Intelligence, a novel and proprietary algorithm that uses Artificial Intelligence to codify the entirety of US sales tax regulation in just over 300,000 lines of code. This means we can handle full nexus calculations, product classifications, approvals, and transaction uploads in mere seconds, reducing the number of CPA billable hours you’d otherwise spend on manual entry.

Does Kintsugi actually file my sales taxes for me?

Yes, we sure do! And Kintsugi can manage more than just filings! We also manage all your Reseller Certificates, Exemptions, and VDAs so you’re always current across all your sales channels. Kintsugi really is a one-stop shop for all omni-channel businesses.

I don’t sell enough to need any filings. Do I even need to automate my sales tax?

Yes, we’d recommend starting early since it’s free to Get Started anyway! Plus, we’ll notify you the moment you need to take any action. Whether you hit nexus next week or next year, we’ll make sure you never miss a registration. And depending on the state and the product, those transactions could count towards Registration requirements even if you don’t need to file.

How does Kintsugi’s data security compare to top competitors?

Kintsugi is SOC 2 Type II compliant and offers Data Processing Addendums to adhere to GDPR compliance. We offer military-grade encryption with SSL certifications and are compliant with all 5 Total Trust Services Criteria to ensure best-in-class protection for your data.
