“HOST has been an absolute savior for our team. Being a three person team that does more than seven figures a year in sales, the sales tax environment can easily get overwhelming for us. HOST does an awesome job of dealing with each state and their individual picky rules to figure out all of the registration and filing details for us. When combined with our sales tax software, we are able to completely be hands off with the sales tax tasks at hand. As fun as all of it sounds, I couldn’t be more grateful that my team and I are able to focus on our areas of expertise in providing value for our customers instead of trying to figure out how to jump through the hoops of the tax code. Special shout out to their team which has been amazing to work with and has personally made my life a lot easier through all of this!”
