Features:

  • See https://www.avalara.com/products/sales-and-use-tax/avatax-2/ for a full AvaTax feature list
  • Jurisdiction assignment - Geocoding technology pinpoint-positions transactions within all applicable jurisdiction boundaries. Geo-positioning provides the basis for precise identification of tax jurisdictions and roll-up to a total tax rate.
  • Address validation - the most accurate and up-to-date address data available. Input addresses are automatically corrected for spelling errors and inaccurate street names. Five-digit zip codes are appended to nine-digit accuracy.
  • Product taxability - includes researched and validated system tax codes into which are assigned a broad array of product categories and individual products. This provides highly accurate taxability assessments and ensures the correct rates are calculated for all products and services.
  • Reporting - Generating summary and detailed reports on-demand, easily and accurately, AvaTax gives you complete visibility to all transactions. Export your data for filing, or for complete end-to-end automation, use AvaTax Returns for fully outsourced sales tax compliance management.
  • Filing and Remittance - The filing and payment process is effortless for AvaTax Returns customers. Paper forms are printed and mailed, and electronic forms are filed as required by states. Remittance can be automated to a single payment via ACH transfer on the appropriate filing date.
