Can I collect sales tax on my Cognito Forms?

Yes - you can collect sales tax through your form. However, sales tax is not automatically calculated and collected for the payments you collect.

If your local sales tax is a flat percentage of the total purchase, use the “Additional Fees” option to collect that amount.

To add a flat-percentage sales tax to an item on your form:

  1. Open your form’s payment settings.
  2. Find the ‘Additional Fees’ option in the bottom of the payment settings menu.
  3. Add a label and enter a flat amount or percentage fee.
