AvaTax CalcAvaTax Calc:

Get intelligent sales tax calculations in your own software

AvaTax Calc integrates with your accounting or ecommerce software to deliver real-time sales tax calculations based on up-to-date sales and use tax rules. This includes sourcing rules, product taxability and jurisdiction assignment. Increased audit activity by taxing authorities demands businesses prove sales tax compliance through accurate calculations and reporting. AvaTax Calc makes compliance simple, with transaction history and on-demand reporting.

Beyond rates—it's a sales tax decision engine

Our sales tax rates Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering is more than just a calculator for sales tax rates. AvaTax Calc is an easily integrated, dynamic tax decision engine. AvaTax dramatically improves accuracy because at initial calculation, AvaTax Calc:

  • Validates and corrects the address—including ZIP code +4
  • Identifies product taxability
  • Applies the most current, up-to-date tax rules and regulations
  • Verifies tax holiday status
  • Applies sourcing rules (where taxable)
  • Automatically assigns correct jurisdiction

THEN the service provides sales tax calculation for the transaction—all in real-time with no delay or interruption to workflow—and applies it in your billing system.

ZIP Code = One Sales Tax Rate, Right? No.

Sometimes, common mistakes happen that are understandable such as assuming sales tax rates are applied by ZIP code. Did you know that some zip codes encompass as many as five different tax rates? Check out Avalara's GeoSalesTax mapping tool to see how many tax rates need to be applied in your selling areas.

Why does this happen? ZIP codes were developed by the Postal Service to improve the efficiency of mail delivery. They rarely correspond to municipal or tax authority boundaries. Special tax districts for utilities, stadiums, museums and local municipalities are common throughout the US.

Risks of poor sales tax calculation and collection practices

Many businesses rely on transactional sales tax calculation methods that are not only inaccurate and difficult to maintain, but can cost thousands of dollars in audit penalties and interest through common mistakes and out-dated information. Businesses must stay up-to-date on current and changing tax rates and rules and implement them in a timely manner to avoid penalties and interest. If you do business in more than one tax jurisdiction, or in complex states, it easily becomes more than a full-time job to keep up with changing tax rates and product taxability. Why waste hours of valuable time that could be better spent building your business rather than dealing with overhead?

AvaTax CertsAvaTax Certs:

Speed up the exemption certificate process

If your business deals with exemptions, you have non-taxable transactions that must have exemption certificates on file to prove the non-tax status of your customer. If this process is manually managed, the risk of audit is increased through inability to produce certificates in a timely fashion, lack of traceability associating transactions to certificates and improper application of sales tax.

AvaTax Certs is a complete exemption certificate management service. From wizard-driven online collection to associating the correct certificate with transactions, AvaTax Certs ensures you maintain compliance and reduce your audit risk.

Move your customers' certificates to the cloud

AvaTax Certs delivers a powerful way of managing your customers' exemption certificates: online, immediately and electronically. AvaTax Certs reduces your audit liability and risk through:
