wont matter because you will likely need to do a bit of sanding anyway.
However start on a short end and work your way around so that you are making a long cut last
Some will put a 1/8th shim at the top with a piece of masking tape – but that more depends on the shape of the box and how stable it is.

Though I tune the fence alignment – I always need to sand the box lid to remove a little ledge from one of the corners, as there will be a little spring to the box lid as you cut it free that can push you away from the fence just a smidge.

To Sand it all back flat I usually use doublestick tape on the sandpaperpaper on the wing of the table saw.
