Not sure how to spell it out any clearer but try this; is there technology (hard/soft ware) that one would need have to be in complaince with tax codes for ecommerece?

I can't say that you need to have any hardware or software to be in compliance with the US tax codes. In the US, the IRS focuses more on the legal instruments (formal documents) that describe your business, how your earn your money, and how you will pay your taxes. As long as you can produce documentation that the IRS requires you should be fine.
Or have I totally missed what you're asking for?

If you're referring to sales tax, it's generally pretty simple (at the moment, anyway):
You collect sales tax for orders shipped to any state where your business has a "physical presence" and the state has a sales tax.
The tax rate varies of course and you'll have to contact the state tax authorities to figure out what the appropriate rate is.
If you're a small business with only one location, you generally only need to collect tax for orders shipped within your state, at the appropriate local sales tax rate.

Yup, there are two great options:
For the enterprise with a no budget restrictions:
For mid-market or SME's:
There are some great companies using the later such as Capezio Balletmakers (the largest dancewear company in the world)
NOTE: they are an ecommerce client of ours

Thank the for the help. From the postings there isn't specific technology that is required by law and/or code.

We collect taxes from any order that has a shipping OR billing address in our state. This may be overkill, but we are erring on the safe side. If your state tax rate is 4.5% and your county/parish tax rate is 4.5%, you would charge 9% tax on the subtotal.
