EXCISE TAXES

Automation for excise taxes

Excise tax compliance can be a major challenge for any supplier, wholesaler, distributor, or retailer. Excise taxes, or volume-based taxes, are often complex and time-consuming to determine and file, with a wide range of product-based rules, rates, forms, and filing requirements at the federal, state, and local levels. Complexity and constant change result in high compliance costs, tax errors, and hidden audit liabilities. By automating excise taxes, including research, calculation, and filing processes, Avalara reduces compliance costs, ensures tax accuracy, and minimizes audit risk.
