David Joseph is a former chef/owner of an award-winning restaurant and co-founder of DAVO Technologies. David hated sales tax and readily admits he sucked at managing it. After several late payments, he realized he was wasting money on penalties and emotional energy stressing over it.
One day he walked out of the kitchen and said, “Why can’t someone do our sales tax the way ADP does our payroll?” His manager, now his wife, started putting sales tax aside daily and from then on it was never a problem. From that seed of an idea, DAVO Technologies developed the DAVO Sales Tax app with the goal of automating sales tax from start to finish. DAVO now manages sales tax for thousands of merchants across the US.
