Getting sales tax right is easier said than done. With the changing and staggeringly complex nature of tax regulations, businesses are continually at risk of non-compliance. That’s the bad news. The good news: the Avalara Tax Compliance Suite has helped over 20,000 businesses address growing tax complexity through automation. Using a robust tax decision engine, Avalara AvaTax determines rates based on 100,000+ taxability rules in 11,000+ taxing jurisdictions and instantly applies them to each transaction within your Magento shopping cart. To take advantage, purchase an AvaTax account and enable the feature in your instance of Magento.
Avalara maintains all the rates and taxability content on a monthly basis and the extension automatically calls out to AvaTax for the most current tax decision. You can also configure your shopping cart to allow Address Validation to verify, standardize, and correct addresses in North America.
In addition to rate calculations, you can set an option to allow Avalara to file and remit taxes on your behalf and integrate with Avalara CertCapture, which allows you to track your tax-exempt customers and documents.
