About Tax APIs

No government can be able to sustain itself without collecting tax. Funding public programs, education, health, infrastructure, and government investments require taxes. Thus, tax administrators have to ensure that every company pays and files their taxes depending on the country of operation.

Tax computation is sometimes a slippery concept, especially for small businesses and startups. While many companies may get obsessed with their business growth and marketing campaigns it is easy to forget tax. Failure to make tax remittances on-time results in payment of expensive fees and penalties.

Therefore, organizations have resulted in the use of software and tools that assist them in tax computations. Such tools include the use of tax APIs. A tax API is a set of commands that build a tax interface to assist you in tax calculations and compliance requirements.

How tax APIs works

Generally speaking, you must create an account with the API platform and request an API key and token authentication. The API key and token grant you access to the API platform and authenticate every action you perform on the API.

Most income tax calculator API consoles allow you to select from various programming languages such as JavaScript, Python, Java, C, Ruby among other common languages. Using the HTTP request method, you build your API to perform the various tasks. The majority of income tax APIs support JSON format, but you can customize it to your preferred format.
