Online Lookup Maps
You may notice, as you perform Online Lookups, that we have recently made some upgrades, including online lookup maps
For one, we got rid of the popup that had the breakout information showing what portion of the tax goes to which jurisdiction. Now, you just click on [show]to see that detail. This makes it possible for you to include that information on your printouts.
We also adjusted the programming so the page will remember your choice and leave the breakout details open if you click [show] and don’t click on [hide] .
We also have a spot for showing calculations for both sales tax and use tax at the same time so you no longer need to click on individual buttons to calculate the different taxes.
The newest feature adds a Google map for every ZIP code you enter. The maps appear underneath the Lookup window, so you may need to scroll down to view them.
We are in the process of plotting ZIP code boundary overlays on the map in the effort to help users better understand the local boundaries and the communities that share the ZIP code as well as which communities lie outside the boundaries. This feature is a work in progress, so it is only available for certain communities at this time. I will post an update when this feature is fully functional.
Please feel free to test everything out and let us know what you think. Also, don’t hesitate to send us suggestions for features you would find helpful.
Thank you for growing with us!
