- Developers can now set tax categories in App Store Connect.
- The feature will allow Apple to more accurately administer taxes in 64 territories for apps.
Apple is making it easier for developers to handle taxes in a number of territories.
In an update on the Apple Developer website, the company announced the addition of tax categories. The new feature will allow developers to list what tax regulation applies to their app in 64 territories which will help Apple to administer tax for them.
The feature will even let developers set different tax categories for each separate in-app purchase if they happen to land under tax regulations. If developers don't set anything, all purchases will continue to be assigned to the App Store software category.
Developers can learn more about setting tax categories on the App Store Connect Help website.
