Tax determination and compliance solutions provider enhances address validation to improve jurisdiction code accuracy

Boston, Mass., Oct. 30, 2013 — Experian® QAS®, a part of Experian Marketing Services and a leading provider of contact data management software and services, today announced that it will team up with Taxware, a provider of sales, use and value-added tax determination and compliance solutions, to enhance address validation for Taxware clients.

“It is extremely important that we deliver our clients the applicable tax rate for each product or service in each of the more than 14,000 possible tax jurisdiction combinations in the United States alone. We are excited to have our clients leverage the market-leading address verification solution from Experian QAS to improve the accuracy of our tax determination and compliance systems,” said Andy Hovancik, CEO of Taxware.

The data quality software is expected to improve address accuracy and standardization for Taxware cloud-based and on-premise clients, allowing them to match customer addresses to jurisdiction codes used to determine indirect tax rates. The prebuilt integration into Taxware Enterprise will be used by Taxware clients for real-time and bulk processing applications.

“With increasing scrutiny around applied tax rates, especially for online retailers and other remote sellers, it is very important that organizations assess the right tax for a given client,” said David Northridge, vice president of client retention, Experian QAS. “As tax jurisdictions are determined by an individual’s address, data accuracy is of paramount importance. We are excited to team up with Taxware to ensure accurate data, preventing inefficiencies and compliance issues.”
