These Stripe Tax Services Terms (“Terms”) apply to your use of the Stripe Tax Services (defined below) and any data you obtain through the Stripe Tax Services. Do not accept these Terms or use the Stripe Tax Services if you or your company is prohibited from doing so by applicable Law.
1. Relationship to Stripe Agreements
When you use the Stripe Tax Services, you expressly agree to the terms and conditions of these Terms, the Stripe Services Agreement, and all updates and modifications Stripe makes to either from time to time, if any. These Terms supplement the Stripe Services Agreement, which generally governs your use of Stripe Services and is incorporated into these Terms by reference. To the extent that there is a conflict between the Stripe Services Agreement and these Terms related to the Stripe Tax Services, these Terms will prevail. Capitalized undefined terms used in these Terms have the meaning given them in the Stripe Services Agreement.
2. Definition and Use of the Stripe Tax Services
“Stripe Tax Services” means Stripe technology that operates in conjunction with other Stripe Services to enable you to determine and calculate the amount, if any, of certain taxes due in connection with your sale of goods or provision of services to your customers, and makes available to you certain data, reports, or other content related to the tax determination or calculation. The Stripe Tax Services are “Services” under the Stripe Services Agreement.
You may use the Stripe Tax Services solely in conjunction with the Stripe Services. You acknowledge and agree that:
a. the Stripe Tax Services rely on the accuracy of information you provide to Stripe;
b. Stripe may provide the Stripe Tax Services based on information taxing authorities provide to Stripe;
c. you may receive reporting through the Stripe Tax Services that is based on Stripe’s federal, state, local and foreign Law interpretation; and
d. the Stripe Tax Services do not constitute tax advice or tax filing/reporting assistance.
Stripe does not represent or warrant that the Stripe Tax Services will enable you to fulfill your obligations under applicable Law, including with respect to taxes. Stripe is not liable for any tax calculations generated by the Stripe Tax Services. You are solely responsible for your compliance with applicable Law, including verifying the effect of any tax Law interpretations upon which the data and reporting you receive through the Stripe Tax Services are based. The data and reporting you receive through the Stripe Tax Services are included in “Stripe Data” under the Stripe Services Agreement. You understand acknowledge that any incorrect tax calculations may result in a tax authority issuing fines, penalties or other sanctions. You must make your own determination of whether or not to act upon any directions or recommendations made by Stripe related to the Stripe Tax Services.
4. Data Retention
It is your responsibility to retain copies of reporting and data you receive through the Stripe Tax Services for the time period required by applicable Law.
Stripe may suspend or terminate your access to the Stripe Tax Services:
a. at any time upon 30 days’ Notice; or
b. immediately on Notice, if (i) you are in breach of these Terms; (ii) there is a material change in any applicable Law, or interpretation of it; or
c. automatically without Notice, if (i) another agreement between you and Stripe (including the Stripe Services Agreement, if applicable) is terminated, or your Stripe Account is suspended or closed; or (ii) your use of the Stripe Tax Services, in Stripe’s reasonable opinion, violates applicable Law or could cause harm to Stripe, its service provider, or other Stripe users.
6. Beta Services
6.1 Beta Services: Stripe may indicate that the Stripe Tax Services, with regard to a particular release or feature, or as offered in certain countries or regions, are classified by Stripe as “beta”, “pilot”, “limited availability”, “invite only”, or “pre release” (“Beta,” and the Beta portion of the Stripe Identity Verification Services, “Beta Services”). You understand that Beta Services are still in development, may have bugs or errors, may be feature incomplete, and may be subject to material change. You further understand that the Beta Services may be generally available in some countries while still classified as Beta in others. Despite any other provision of these Terms to the contrary, you understand and agree that your use of or reliance on the Beta Services is subject to the Beta classification, which will continue in force until Stripe removes the classification.
6.2 Modification to Beta Functionality; Beta Updates: Stripe has no obligation whatsoever to provide any bug fixes, error corrections, patches, or service packs for, or any revisions, successors, or updated versions to, the Beta Services, or any part of them, while the Beta classification is in place (all of the foregoing, if made available by Stripe, “Beta Updates”). However, if Stripe provides or makes available any Beta Update, you must fully implement the Beta Update within the time period specified by Stripe or 30 days after Stripe makes the Beta Update available, whichever is sooner.
6.3 Availability and Updates During Beta Period: Stripe may make updates, changes, repairs, or conduct maintenance at any time, and with or without notice, which may result in changes in the availability or quality of the Beta Services. In addition, Stripe may suspend your access to the Beta Services with or without notice, including if Stripe reasonably believes that (a) suspending the Beta Services is required by applicable Law; (b) continuing to provide the Beta Services would place Stripe in breach of any obligation Stripe owes to a third party; or (c) Stripe determines that continuing to provide the Beta Services would give rise to an unacceptable security or privacy risk. Stripe may also terminate your access to the Beta Services if Stripe, in its sole discretion, stops offering the Beta Services completely or in your jurisdiction.
