No send button or escape from address field

Very cool app! But, if you go to share, the send button disappears after putting an email address in, And if you click in the address field but want to click instead on the locate button, you can’t escape the address field. Also, share should include SMS sending so it can be texted to your friends

And one more - sending to support suffers the same no send button issue

Our ancestors were amazing

Washington State is very hard to do business in. Once you had to know the hundreds of tax rates for all the tiny little tax districts a contractor would do business in. With this app and a little luck, you can actually charge the correct tax at a residential or commercial address with the push of a button. In a year I work in several hundred tax areas and I don’t care, just open the app and get it right every time, no arguing.

I want more...

I save each invoice in this app. Then email each to an email just for tax purposes.
• It would be a time saver if there was a bulk export option instead of me emailing each individual invoice separately...
• It would be a timesaver if I could export the information to Washington State's combined excise tax online experience...
