It does have a US centric view (TaxCloud).  I didn't see too many other decent tax-calculating
services though, and its a pretty complex issue to handle internally.  Is the problem Taxcloud
itself, or that Stratostack doesn't handle taxing cases outside the US?

The first thing I would look at doing is adding Stripe and possibly Paypal.  Stripe would
also pick up Bitcoin payments.
