In App sales tax calculation

    Question

  • Hi there,

    I'm working on a Windows Store App (Xaml/C#) that will have to do same sales tax calculation, from the Canadian and/or USA market and maybe more country later. But I'm not sure witch mechanism to use. I like to have some experience from others, on how to implement such functionality.

    I've do some research, and fond some Web API, but I don't know witch one to use. www.strikeiron.com seam a good one, is there other option?

    Thanks in advance

    Are you looking for recommendations of web services to look up tax rates for different jurisdictions?
