TaxJar ODBC Driver

The TaxJar ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live data from TaxJar, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access TaxJar data like you would a database - read, write, and update TaxJar Transactions, TaxAmounts, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Use wizards in DBArtisan to configure TaxJar data as a data source.

The CData ODBC Driver for TaxJar seamlessly integrates TaxJar data into database management tools like DBArtisan by enabling you to access TaxJar data as a database. This article shows how to create an data source for TaxJar in DBArtisan and execute queries. You can then edit data visually and execute standard SQL.

Integrate TaxJar Data into DBArtisan Projects

If you have not already, first specify connection properties in an ODBC DSN (data source name). This is the last step of the driver installation. You can use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create and configure ODBC DSNs.

To authenticate to the TaxJar API, you will need to first obtain the API Key from the TaxJar UI.

NOTE: the API is available only for Professional and Premium TaxJar plans.

If you already have a Professional or Premium plan you can find the API Key by logging in the TaxJar UI and navigating to Account -> TaxJar API. After obtaining the API Key, you can set it in the APIKey connection property.

Additional Notes

  • By default, the CData connector will retrieve data of the last 3 months in cases where the entity support date range filtering. You can set StartDate to specify the minimum creation date of the data retrieved.
  • If the API Key has been created for a sandbox API account please set UseSandbox to true, but not all endpoints will work as expected. For more information, refer to the TaxJar developer documentation.

You can then follow the steps below to register TaxJar data as a database instance in your project:

  1. In DBArtisan, click Data Source -> Register Datasource.
  2. Select Generic ODBC.
  3. Enter a name for the data source and select the DSN.
  4. Finish the wizard to connect to TaxJar data. TaxJar entities are displayed in the Datasource Explorer.

You can now work with TaxJar data as you work with any other database. See the driver help documentation for more information on the queries supported by the TaxJar API.
