All Shoeboxed customers can now add a new data field to their digitized receipts: sales tax, value-added tax (VAT), or goods and services tax (GST).
Who can use the sales tax feature?
All web customers, new and existing, can opt-in or out of the sales tax feature at no additional cost.
US vs. Non-US Addresses
For US-based (mailing address is US) accounts, we do not automatically collect tax at data-entry or show this data in your dashboard. You’ll have to opt-in or out of this feature in your account settings.
Please note this update does not change anything for accounts with a mailing address outside of the US. We will continue to collect tax at data-entry and you’ll be able to see tax data in your account.
What about previously uploaded receipts?
Turning on the sales tax feature will not back-date any previously uploaded receipts.
If you would like to record sales tax data for older receipts you will have to submit them for reprocessing.
