About Us

Our Hands Have Been On Sales Tax For More Than 20 Years

Co-Founded in 1999 by Mike Espenshade, HOST (Hands Off Sales Tax) has been solely focused on sales tax services.

Our consultants work directly with small and medium sized ecommerce businesses and financial service partners that need a helping hand managing changing sales tax requirements.

In 2018, the world of sales tax completely changed for ecommerce based businesses with the introduction of economic nexus which requires ecommerce and remote sellers to register and collect sales tax in additional states after hitting thresholds which vary by state. HOST meets the growing demands of ecommerce companies and remote sellers alike that need a one-stop Sales Tax as a Service®!

Through our parent company, TaxMatrix, we have helped some of the largest companies in North America manage their sales tax requirements. And now we’re bringing those services and our 20+ years of experience to small ecommerce based businesses. We pride ourselves on continuing to provide crucial services to small ecommerce businesses as the tax industry develops.

Are you looking for a partner to outsource the filing of your sales tax returns? Do you have Nexus woes and need assistance with filing sales tax registrations? Are you an entrepreneur seeking advice before taking the leap into ecommerce? Are you unsure about the taxability of your product or service? HOST has you covered so that you can keep your hands on your business.
