2600hz and SureTax® Partner, Adding Tax Calculation Services to the 2600hz Platform
2600hz, the leading provider of mobile and cloud telecom technology, announced today that it is partnering with SureTax to integrate SureTax Telecom into 2600hz’s Kazoo platform. This strategic partnership allows 2600hz to leverage the rating, reporting and tax calculation services offered by SureTax through a turn-key solution that integrates directly into the Kazoo platform. 2600hz can offer telecom taxation services for all ITSP, MVNO and VoIP providers.
2600hz will soon release a SureTax application on its Kazoo platform so that telecom providers can better manage their business. This app rates and calculates taxes using SureTax’s taxation engine, helping customers determine what tax bureaus they must remit taxes to. The system is completely automated and allows VoIP, landline and cellular services to be bundled and taxed properly together.
“We are excited to partner with SureTax, making telecom tax easy for our customers,” said 2600hz CEO Darren Schreiber. “SureTax helps us with our core initiative, enabling smaller telecoms grow while taking the work out of day-to-day telecommunications logistics and operations.”
SureTax Telecom is a robust, real-time, accurate tax calculation solution designed specifically for the telecommunications industry. SureTax Telecom easily adapts to evolving products and services, and can be customized to meet jurisdiction or industry-specific nuances. SureTax Telecom contains over 600 taxability items, plus VAT coverage from international calls, offers extensive reporting capabilities and easily accommodates remittance systems and compliance service provider needs.
“We look forward to working with 2600hz and the Kazoo community,” adds Mike Sanders, SureTax Chief Product Architect. “SureTax Telecom makes telecom compliance easy, so you can focus on value added operations. We share the same vision. That’s why we think this is such a great fit.”
