USA merchants often erroneously believe that it's accurate or legal to use zip codes to calculate sales tax, but that's simply not the case. Using zip codes as your primary method of calculating sales tax will lead to charging incorrect tax amounts, under or over reporting taxes, and customer dissatisfaction at being charged the wrong amount for tax.

This helpful guide from our tax automation partner, Avalara, explains the risks and pitfalls of using ZIP codes for things they were never intended for, and how you can handle credit card verification, address validation and sales tax calculation accurately, without relying on zip codes.
